Discontinued models like the Toyota FJ Cruiser, Chevrolet Orlando, Dodge Avenger, Subaru Tribeca, and Nissan Quest grabbed the top (bottom?) spots on March 2015’s list of the worst-selling vehicles in Canada.
But they were joined by numerous other models which are, for a variety of reasons, not matching the sales performances they achieved a year ago. The Audi A7, Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Avalon, and Fiat 500, for example, aren’t defunct nameplates, nor are they awaiting a soon-coming replacement. They simply didn’t sell nearly as often in March 2015 as they did in March 2014.
When measured by Canadian volume, not year-over-year decline, the A7, Impala, Avalon, and 500 aren’t mentioned. But there are ultra-low-volume vehicles on the list which, unlike the Audi R8 and Porsche 918 Spyder, aren’t supposed to be ultra-low-volume vehicles. Consider the Kia Cadenza, Cadillac ELR, and Lexus LS, as examples.
