Canada – Large Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

Large cars in Canada had a good month in August. The segment was up for the month of August by about 200 units. This is largely due to the fact that Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 saw massive rises in sales over this month last year.

When you look at the YTD numbers, it’s clear that the segment has struggled this year. The segment was down roughly 1,600 units so far this year when compared with last year.

Only the Dodge Charger has managed to see sales rise this year. It leads the segment in terms of sales volume for both the month of August and for the year.

We would expect this segment to continue to struggle. It will be interesting to see how long FCA can continue to make the Charger and keep sales strong. The model is an old design and getting dated.

Below you will find sales figures for all large cars sold in Canada broken down by month and by quarter.

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