2013 Canada Auto Sales Figures – By Model (All Vehicle Ranked)
2013 Canadian Vehicle Sales Rankings – Every Vehicle Ranked By Sales Volume
Having expanded its lead by another 2050 units during the month of December, the Ford F-Series was the best-selling vehicle in Canada in 2013 with a 42,077-unit margin of victory. That’s up from 2012’s 37,103-unit differential between the top-ranked F-Series and second-ranked Ram P/U. Of all the similarities between the Canadian and U.S. new vehicle markets, the fact that Ford is the top-selling brand and also lays claim to the F-Series as the clear best-selling vehicle is perhaps the most striking. Yet there are vast differences in auto buying and leasing tendencies when, for example, you cross the Detroit River or leave St. Stephen for Calais.
Canadians buy more trucks. Well, we buy far fewer trucks, but on a per capita basis and by a percentage of the overall new vehicle market, trucks are more important to the industry in Canada 18% of the new vehicles sold in Canada are pickups; just 14% in the U.S. Mazda’s market share is more than twice as strong in Canada as it is in the U.S., as is Mitsubishi’s. Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Volvo bring in nearly twelve out of every 100 new auto sales in the U.S., but those same brands generate barely nine out of every 100 of the Canadian auto industry’s sales. Cadillac and Lincoln own 2.1% of the U.S. market; just 0.9% of the Canadian new vehicle market.
