Canada Auto Manufacturer Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

Unlike with American car sales for the month of August, Canada didn’t have a great month. Of all the automakers selling vehicles, only five of them saw sales increase for the month of August when compared with August of last year.

When you look YTD, it’s clear that things are even direr. There were only four automakers that have seen sales increase so far this year.

Ford led the way in terms of volume, but it was down roughly 9 percent. General Motors was close behind, but it, too. saw a decline. It watched sales drop by a much less significant .29 percent.

Below you will find Canadian sales figures for all of the major auto manufacturers broken down by month and by quarter. Manufacturers differ from brands, for example, Ford Motor Co manufacturers both Ford and Lincoln brands. If you are looking for Canadian auto sales by brand check out this page instead.

We will report Automotive Sales in Canada for August 2019 beginning on Tuesday, September 6th, 2019 beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.

Quarterly Sales Table

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.
