May 2019 – The Best-Selling Vehicles In Canada – Every Vehicle Ranked


The GCBC Analysis

When you look at the full sales stats for every car on sale in Canada, it becomes clear, that May and 2019 thus far have not been great. In the month of May, there were roughly 11,000 fewer sales than this month last year. Looking at YTD numbers and you see, that there have been about 24,000 fewer sales. 

The Ford F-Series truck secured the top spot in terms of volume, though its sales were down about a percent. The Ram Pickup came in second place, though its sales were down a much more dramatic 22 percent. Rounding out the top three was the Honda Civic, which also saw a decrease in sales of about 22 percent. 

While sales were down overall, there were models that stood out in a positive way. The Toyota RAV4 placed fourth. It saw a surge in sales of 23 percent. Although the Hyundai Kona’s sales were not near the top contenders in terms of sales, it saw a nearly 51 percent rise in sales. Also, Ford’s Edge managed to see a healthy rise in sales of about 24 percent. There were others too, but they had fewer sales in terms of volume than these models. 

The May vehicle sales may have been a pretty extreme drop, but it’s yet to be seen if that will continue. Hopefully, the declines will slow in the coming months.

All Vehicles Sales by Quarter

Important note: Both Ford, GM and FCA have switched to quarterly reporting, making it more difficult to accurately gauge sales. We won’t have results to report for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Lincoln, Jeep, Chrysler, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Dodge and Ram until the end of each quarter.
