Canada’s 30 most popular vehicles produced six out of every ten new vehicle sales during the month of July 2015. Despite losses posted by the most popular vehicle line (Ford’s F-Series), and the most popular car (Honda’s Civic), and the best-selling minivan (Dodge Grand Caravan), and the top-selling SUV (Ford Escape), the overall industry rose by 0.5%.
That gain of fewer than 1000 extra sales compared with July 2015 occurred in spite of the massive losses posted by the four aforementioned vehicles. They collectively plunged 15%, a loss of 4598 sales. In July 2014, the F-Series, Civic, Grand Caravan, and Escape earned 17.3% of all Canadian new vehicle sales. That figure slid to 14.6% in July 2015.
And yet they held their positions. The F-Series outsold the second-ranked Ram P/U by 1681 units. The Civic finished July with 833 more sales than the next-best-selling car, Hyundai’s Elantra. The Grand Caravan outsold the second-ranked minivan, Toyota’s Sienna, by more than 3.5-to-1. The Escape finished ahead of the second-ranked Nissan Rogue to the tune of two extra sales.
