Minivan sales in Canada didn’t do well in 2019. They also struggled in the final month of the year with only one model seeing sales rise at all. All models saw sales decline in 2019 when compared with 2018. It has been a tough year for the segment.
When you look at just the month of December, the segment was down by about 1,500 sales. When you look at 2019 as a whole, you’ll see that the segment was down by 10,000 sales.
The Dodge Grand Caravan outsold all other models on sale, despite the fact that it is one of the oldest designs on sale. The model, however, saw sales drop for both the month of December and the year as a whole.
We’d expect minivan sales to continue to drop as the year goes on. The segment has struggled in the last few years, and there’s no reason to think that it won’t continue to do so despite the fact that minivans are some of the most versatile and family-friendly models on the market.
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.
