Large SUVs in Canada managed to sell well in the month of October. However, the segment was actually down when you look at the YTD numbers.
The segment saw a rise in sales of about 140 units in the month of October. When you look at the YTD numbers, the segment has seen 290 fewer sales than it did last year.
The segment leader was the Ford Expedition. It’s a newer model and is selling extremely well. The vehicle was up about 134 percent for the month and by nearly 54 percent YTD. It is the only model that has seen sales rise in 2019 YTD.
We expect much of the segment to continue to struggle for the rest of the year and into next year. However, the Ford Expedition will continue to have strong sales, and some other models may experience good months heading into 2020.
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.
