THREE-FOURTHS OF 2009 OVER : CANADA’S BEST-SELLING LUXURY CAR BRANDS

Numbers recently made available to The Good Car Guy have revealed some hugely interesting trends. These trends are obvious to the trained eye, but you may need them pointed out. For starters, Canadians don’t really bother with American luxury cars. Secondly, Canadians may sometimes appear to follow the American automotive Marketplace fairly closely, but are addicted to Acura more strongly than Lexus. Hmm.
Then there’s the sales of Jaguar and Land Rover, no longer shared in the States. In case you hadn’t heard, Jaguar and Land Rover really don’t sell very many vehicles. Anyhow, the Sales Stats below show luxury brands competing in Canada and their totals through the first nine months – three quarter performance, if you will – in order of numerical success.
