Canada Minivan Sales Figures By Model

The GCBC Analysis

Minivan sales in Canada looked pretty good. The segment had a good August. It was up roughly 260 units for the month when compared with this time last year.

August was a much better month than usual. The only two models that saw sales decline were the Honda Odyssey and the Kia Sedona. The Dodge Grand Caravan led the pack in terms of sales volume with a roughly four percent rise in sales for the month.

When you look YTD, four of the five models on sale have seen sales decline. Only the Toyota Sienna has managed to see sales increase. They’ve risen by about six percent. As a whole, the segment has been down roughly 7,000 units so far this year.

We expect the next month to go back to seeing sales declines for much of the segment. Minivans simply aren’t hot sellers right now, and we see the August numbers as a fluke.

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