Our Take On The Vehicle sales Numbers

In Canada from a model standpoint, the Ford F-Series pickup leads the way. However, both for the month and for the year its sales were down compared to last year. It saw a drop of 8.73 percent and 6.18 percent respectively.

The Ram pickup followed suit in terms of volume, but it, too, saw decreases compared to the previous year. For the month it was down 4.48 percent and for the year 6.18 percent.

The Honda Civic came in third in terms of volume with a 24.73 percent increase for the month compared to last year. It suffered a .04 percent drop when you look at the full year.

When you look at the market as a whole, crossovers and SUVs seemed to do the best in terms of momentum. The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V both saw increases over last year from a monthly sales standpoint and YTD standpoint.

The Jeep Wrangler also saw large increases of 38.01 percent for the month of December over last year and a 42.32 percent increase for the year as a whole.

Other crossovers and SUVs fared a similar fate. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues in 2019.
