Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – June 2016


2016 Chrysler 300

As of June 2016’s Canadian worst sellers list, we’ve added a new formula to better enable you to see the recent results of vehicles trending in the wrong direction. Not only can you see the 20 lowest-volume vehicles in Canada and the 20 vehicles declining the most rapidly on a year-over-year percentage scale. Now you can also see a list of higher-volume vehicles which are also declining rapidly.

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – June 2016 YTD

In June, the Chrysler 300’s 58% year-over-year decline topped the new list. One other car, the increasingly troubled Volkswagen Passat also lost more than half its volume. In total, ten cars which attracted more than 250 sales (the Canadian minimum for this new worst sellers tabulation) plunged by more than 30%, a collective loss from those ten vehicles of  more than 4200 sales. 

Those ten vehicles – 300, Passat, GLC, Taurus, 3-Series, Flex, Jetta, Sonic, Cruze, Focus – owned 6.6% of the Canadian new vehicle market in June 2015. That figure fell to 3.9% in June 2016 as the market surged to an all-time June record. 

There were a number of mainstream vehicles which were so unpopular that they didn’t qualify for the new format. Dodge Dart, Nissan Titan, and Ford Fiesta.

Year-to-date, Canadian sales of the Chrysler 300 are down 17% to 2778 units. FCA Canada says 412 of the 2778 300s sold were 300Cs.
