Canada’s three best-selling vehicles all posted significant year-over-year sales declines in August 2015.
The Canadian auto industry nevertheless managed to produce a 2.3%, 4000-unit improvement compared with August 2014 despite a loss of 2611 sales from the top-selling Ford F-Series, second-ranked Ram P/U, and the Honda Civic, Canada’s top-selling car.
In fact, the best-selling minivan, Dodge’s Grand Caravan, tumbled 11%, and the Ford Escape, Canada’s best-selling utility vehicle, slid 13%.
All these losses were more than counteracted by big gains from popular vehicles like the GM’s full-size pickup trucks; the Hyundai Elantra, Nissan Rogue, Jeep Cherokee, Honda CR-V, and Dodge Journey; and products like the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Lexus NX, and GM’s midsize truck tandem.
