The midsize luxury car segment in Canada struggled to match last year’s sales numbers in the month of October. However, the segment is still up over last year’s numbers when you look YTD.
The YTD numbers are up by about 800 units. When you look at just the numbers for October, you’ll notice that they’re down about 1,900 units.
Both of these results are due to the Tesla Model 3’s sales and how they compare to last year. The model’s sales numbers indicate when Tesla was able to ramp up production of the models and sell more of them. If you exclude this particular model from the sales numbers, you’ll see that the segment is struggling.
We’d imagine next year will not be a good year for the segment. The majority of the models in it will see sales drop in 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.
