Our Take On The Vehicle sales Numbers

Interest rate rises are beginning to take their toll on Canadian vehicle sales, with August’s results down on the same month a year ago.

Light trucks and SUVs continue to increase their dominance on the market, with around 70% of vehicles sold last month being in this category.

Curiously, most Jeep models saw sales tumble last month – while Wrangler and Cherokee posted increases in August, Grand Chrokee, Compass and Renegade all saw sales drop off despite the move towards SUVs among Canadian buyers seeming to suit the brand’s lineup.

The Honda Civic was once again the best-selling passenger car, with sales increasing 3.2% year-on-year, as Toyota passenger cars also had a good month off the back of surging Camry sales as well as an increase in Prius sales.
