In all, five of Canada’s 30 best-selling vehicles in June were Fords. Chrysler Canada also earned five spots with the Ram, two Jeeps, and two Dodges.
Honda grabbed four spots, including the 29th-ranked Fit; Toyota earned another three, as did Nissan and General Motors. Hyundai and Kia combined for four entries, Mazda two, and Volkswagen one.
Compared with the previous month’s edition of this list, the Kia Rio and Chevrolet Equinox were knocked out in favour of June’s 25th-ranked Nissan Versa and 23rd-ranked Nissan Sentra. Compared with June of last year, Chrysler 200 and Hyundai Sonata are out; the Honda Fit and Nissan Versa are in.
These recent Nissan inclusions are symbols of a brand-wide surge that has made Nissan one of Canada’s fastest-growing auto brands. Through the first half of 2014, Nissan Canada sales (Infiniti-excluded) are up 28.5%. The only high-volume brand to do better is Jeep, which is up 40.9%. But Nissan has actually added more sales than Jeep (11,303 compared with 9656), Honda (+5814), Ram (+3561), Subaru (+3076), or Toyota (+2608).
