2019 Canada Auto Sales by Manufacturer Analysis

Report Updated: With October 2019 Data on November 4th, 2019

Top Level Canada Reports: By Manufacturer / By Brand / By Model / Best Sellers

When you look at sales from a manufacturer standpoint it’s clear that automobile sales have not had a wonderful year in Canada. The segment shows several companies down YTD. When you look at just the month of October, things look better. However, they still don’t look great.

The industry is led for the month by General Motors. When you look YTD, the industry is led by Ford. Both automakers have struggled YTD and in the month of October.

The only automakers that are having a good year so far in Canada are Toyota, Hyundai Kia Auto Group, Volvo, and Tesla. These car companies have seen single-digit percentage gains in sales over the course of the year. We’d expect they will continue this level of sales rises in the coming months.

We also expect the companies that have seen sales drop for the year to continue doing so, though there are a couple that could turn the corner at the year’s end. They include FCA, Ford, and Subaru. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the year shakes out.

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.

YTD Market Share Dynamics

This chart gives you a view of the year to date automotive sales volumes by manufacturer and how they make up the Canadian automotive market in terms of market share. You can see in this handy chart that the big manufacturer continue to make up a disproportionate amount of the market for new car sales.

YTD This Year vs YTD Last Year

This chart simply takes each manufacturer and compares their year to date sales with the year to date sales for the same time last year. Manufacturers where the dark green bar is lower than the light green have seen declines in sales year on year whereas manufacturers with a higher dark green bar and lower light green bar are seeing growth in volumes year on year.

YTD Automotive Manufacturer Analysis

This chart might seem a little complicated at first but once you understand it is very helpful. First, the size of the area for each manufacturer refers to their market share (i.e size). The bigger the circle the larger the manufacturer in terms of sales volumes (YTD). The position of the circle in the chart along the left axis looks at the year to date growth of that manufacturer. The higher the manufacturer is on the chart, the more year to date growth it is seeing in sales volumes. Along the bottom axis you can see the total volumes shipped by that manufacturer year to date.

Canada Car Manufacturer Sales by Quarter

Like the monthly view of manufacturer performance, the quarterly view is a broader, less volatile view. You can see automotive manufacturers who are building momentum over several years and those who are declining over the same period. It is a little easier to see in this view and less volatile too because monthly ups and downs are smoothed out.


Automotive Data Disclosures

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.
