Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings – April 2019


Our Take Brand & Corporation Rankings

There were fewer sales in the month of April of 2019 in Canada than in March. The leading brand for the month was Ford. However, it’s sales were down roughly four percent. Toyota was in second and it managed to see an increase in sales of roughly five percent.

Those brands were followed by Honda, Chevrolet, and Hyundai to round out the top five. Roughly, half of the brands selling vehicles saw an increase in sales and half saw decreases. 

In terms of manufacturer sales numbers, Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles are in the top three followed by Toyota and then Hyundai. 

When compared to the same month last year, April was not a very good month. The sales were lower by more than 6,000 units. When you look at the YTD numbers the story doesn’t change much. Sales are down roughly 10,000 units from this time last year. This doesn’t bode well for future sales.
