The Ford F-Series was Canada’s best-selling vehicle in 2014, the sixth consecutive year in which the Ford truck range has led all vehicles in Canada.
Canada’s top-selling car, the Honda Civic, led all passenger cars for the 17th consecutive year. The Civic ranked third overall, behind the F-Series and the Ram P/U. Both the Ford and Ram broke their own sales records, and no vehicle has ever sold more often in Canada in a single year than the F-Series did in 2014.
Canadians made a minivan their fifth-most-popular vehicle; the Ford Escape pipped the Dodge Grand Caravan for fourth spot. Three of the five best-selling vehicles in Canada posted above-average sales gains in 2014, a record-setting year for the industry as a whole.
Those five vehicles accounted for more than two out of every ten new vehicle sales. The 20 top-selling vehicle nameplates generated nearly half of the auto industry’s Canadian sales volume.
In December, specifically, there were three all-new nameplates on sale in Canada. Chevrolet sold their first copies of the Nissan NV200-based City Express commercial van. There were two copies of the Alfa Romeo 4C reported as sold by Chrysler Canada/FCA. Lexus also began selling the NX, a smaller sibling to the RX, Canada’s best-selling premium brand utility vehicle.
Reminder: these are 2014 year end rankings, but you can sort vehicles by December volume by clicking the December 2014 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.
There are visible brand results, so when you sort the table by vehicle names to showcase, for example, all Nissan together, you’ll also see the Nissan brand’s total. Manufacturers are shown in bold to differentiate makes and models. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.
