The pickup truck segment made up a smaller portion of the overall U.S. new vehicle market in May 2011 as minivans remained equal and cars also were responsible for a smaller slice of the pie. Indeed, SUV/CUV/Crossovers held 29.1% of the overall U.S. automobile market, up from 28.4% in April.
SUV/CUV/Crossover sales grabbed 28.7% of all Canadian auto sales; that’s up from 28.2% in the previous month. Minivans grew their portion; truck sales shrunk slightly as a percentage of all new vehicle sales. Canada’s best-selling car in May was the Hyundai Elantra. The best-selling SUV was the same as America’s: the Ford Escape. Ford’s F-Series was Canada’s best-selling truck. The market share of the country’s 20 best-selling vehicles is explored in this chart.
