April 2015 auto sales in Canada jumped to nearly 190,000 units despite decreased volume from the two top-selling vehicle lines. Both the Ford F-Series and Ram P/U, Canada’s two top-selling pickup trucks, posted marginal April losses.
Together, they account for 12% of the new vehicles sold this year, so their decline is noticeable. Canada’s best-selling car so far this year is the Honda Civic, the third-best-selling model overall, and while sales are down 6% this year, Civic volume jumped 21% in April.
The Ford Escape leads all SUVs and crossovers, but it’s firm grip on the top spot of the leaderboard is being gradually loosened. Canadians aren’t buying as many minivans this year, either, in large part because the top sellers from Dodge and Chrysler – the Grand Caravan ranks seventh overall – are stumbling during a factory transition in Windsor, Ontario.
In total, 264 different vehicle nameplates have generated (reported) Canadian sales figures through the first four months of 2015. With assistance from Global Automakers Of Canada, this is the third month in which we’re able to display figures for the Porsche 918 Spyder, Volkswagen Golf GTI, and Subaru Impreza WRX/STi. Toyota Canada also released some figures in greater detail in April, so you can see how many of the Lexus RCs sold were F models.
Reminder: these are year-to-date sales rankings, but you can sort vehicles by April 2015 volume by clicking the April 2015 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.
