Our Take Brand & Corporation Rankings

It’s official – more than two million vehicles were sold in Canada in the year 2017.

Consumers in Canada bought 2,041,266 vehicles in the 12 months to the end of December 2017, representing a 4.5% growth in the Canadian auto market for the year.

As a sales month, December 2017 actually fared just under 1% worse than December 2016, with none of the top-three brands posting year-on-year growth for the final month of 2017.

All the top-5 brands grew over the course of the year however; Honda, Chevrolet and Nissan in third, fourth and fifth overall for the year outpaced growth of the auto market as a whole.

The top-placed Ford brand’s market share shrunk – from 15.3% to 14.7% in 2017, while Toyota’s grew. Honda dropped 0.2%, while Chevrolet gained 0.6% in market share for the year compared with 2016.

The biggest change is the battle for fifth and sixth place in the year-to-date stakes. Hyundai lost out to the might of Nissan, riding the wave of the success of its crossover and SUV offering. Hyundai lost 0.75% market share between 2016 and 2017.

Meanwhile, a 10.3% lift in sales for RAM for the year sees it top 100k sales in the Canadian market for the first time.
