Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings - February 2017 YTD

2017 Hyundai Tucson red
Canadian auto sales started off 2017 with a somewhat surprising 2% uptick, a decent turnaround from a slowdown in the latter half of 2016. But were January results a sign of what's to come?


Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - February 2017 YTD


February 2017's results serve to suggest that January was not a mere blip. Auto sales jumped 3% in Canada in the second month of 2017 to an all-time February high, boosted by a 6% uptick in light truck volume that more than cancelled out a 2% car sales drop. Passenger car market share slid to just 31%, down from 33% one year ago.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles reigned as Canada's top-selling manufacturer for a second consecutive month. Ford topped all brands with 18,427 sales, up 3%, year-over-year. Mercedes-Benz was the best-selling premium brand, besting BMW by 720 units. 

Big gains from niche brands – Maserati and Jaguar – made those low-volume brands the fastest-growing in Canada in February. Buick, Porsche, Audi, Dodge, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, and Honda all reported improvements of more than 20%. 

On the other hand, Smart, Alfa Romeo, Land Rover Mitsubishi, Jeep, and Hyundai all reported double-digit percentage losses, with Hyundai and Jeep combining to lose nearly 1800 sales.
