Commercial Van Sales In Canada - April 2016 YTD

2016 Ford Transit Cargo Area
Canada's auto industry registered a 14% year-over-year increase in sales of commercial vans as the small sub-segment recorded rapid growth but remained a relatively small niche. 

Only 18.8% of the commercial vans sold in Canada in April 2016 were "small", including the midsize Mercedes-Benz Metris. Canada's leading commercial van, the full-size Ford Transit, easily outsold the whole small commercial van sub-segment on its own.
