YTD Market Share Dynamics

This chart gives you a view of the year to date automotive sales volumes by brand and how they make up the Canadian automotive market in terms of market share. You can see in this handy chart that the big brands 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 brand and compares their year to date sales with the year to date sales for the same time last year. Brands where the dark green bar is lower than the light green have seen declines in sales year on year whereas brands with a higher dark green bar and lower light green bar are seeing growth in volumes year on year.

YTD Automotive Brand 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 brand refers to their market share (i.e size). The bigger the circle the larger the brand 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 brand. The higher the brand 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 brand year to date.


Canada Quarterly Car Brand Sales Numbers

This data table looks at quarterly sales performance by automotive brand for the United States. It includes all major automotive brands sold in the Canadian market. We compare last quarter’s Canadian brand sales with the same brand sales for the same quarter last year. We also include a growth rate too so you can see which brands are growing and which ones are declining. The quarterly view of sales at the brand level often gives you a better picture of what is happening than monthly because it takes out some of the month to month noise.


Canada Automotive Brand Sales by Month

This sales data table looks at monthly sales performance for automotive brands in the United States on a month to month basis for the entire year so far. It includes all major brands sold in the Canadian market and you can see that the monthly brand sales trends clearly. Seeing the individual brand sales performance in this way gives you a good sense of the momentum (good or bad).


Canada Automotive Brand Sales by Quarter

Like the monthly view of brand performance, the quarterly view is a broader, less volatile view. You can see automotive brands 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.
