Large Car Sales In Canada – August 2017


While August saw some recovery for the Canadian Large Car market, sales in this sector were still down on the same month the previous year’s performance by almost 10%.
This has led to another chip from the segment’s 2017 YTD total, which remains 10.7% ahead of the same point in 2016.
The Dodge Charger and Chevrolet Impala both saw marginal growth in sales over last August, though both are still comfortably ahead in YTD terms.
The Ford Taurus slipped behind its 2016 YTD in August. Its Canadian sales appeared to peak for the year in June, when 910 Taurus’s were sold, but since then its figures have been disappointing. Traditionally, its sales dip in Canada heading into the winter months, but this year the drop has been more severe.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes – Hyundai USA doesn’t yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe – the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
