Canadian auto sales grew 2% to an all-time January high of 110,945 units in the first month of 2017, boosted by a surge in sales of the top-selling Ford F-Series, Canada’s most popular vehicle in each of the last eight calendar years.
Although the Honda Civic tumbled 10%, it maintained its podium position in January. But the Civic led a passenger car category that slid 5% compared with January 2016 and 8% compared with January 2015. Civic sales fell twice as quickly as the car market overall.
But Canada is F-Series’ territory. Ford’s most popular line of vehicles, with 9303 January sales, outsold every auto brand in Canada aside from Toyota. In fact, the F-Series outsold all other Fords combined, too.
By 1868 units.
8.4% of the new vehicles sold in Canada in January 2017 were Ford pickup trucks.
