Canada’s 20 best-selling new vehicle nameplates generated just under half of all new vehicle sales volume in Canada in November 2014 as many of the country’s most popular nameplates posted huge year-over-year gains.
The Ford F-Series was up 18%. The Ram P/U reported its best-ever November sales thanks to a 19% gain. Honda’s CR-V, the country’s top-selling utility vehicle, was up 56%.
The F-Series and Ram gains weren’t unusual in the truck segment. Sales of the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado increased dramatically, as well. As a result, pickup trucks generated 18.6% of the Canadian auto industry’s new vehicle sales in November 2014, up from 16.7% at this time a year ago and 17.2% in October of this year.
Meanwhile, according to Automotive News, passenger car volume slid 3% thanks in part to the best-selling car’s massive November decline. The Honda Civic was down 27%, a loss of 1528 units. Total car volume was down by around 1900 units.
