Canadians registered 9451 new minivans in August 2012. 16.5% of of those vans were less conventional Rondos, 5s, or Orlandos. 58% were Dodge Grand Caravans; another 2% were somewhat more premium Grand Caravan-based Chrysler Town & Countrys.
While we’re on the subject of Windsor-built minivans, Volkswagen sold 44 Routans in August. That’s down from 53 a year earlier. Think that’s low? Well… yeah, it is. During the same period, however, Nissan Quest sales plunged from 103 to just 24.
Not unlike the minivan segment, Canada’s pickup truck category is dominated by one vehicle. Like the minivan segment, there are other relevant products and many ultra-low volume nameplates. 41% of the trucks sold were Ford F-Series pickups. The GM’s twins and the Ram P/U accounted for another 47.5% of the trucks sold.

This leaves 11 truck nameplates to fight over a very small portion of the market. Of the remaining 3183 August truck sales, 51% were Toyotas.
