Canada Auto Market Size 2001 – 2010

Compared with their American counterparts, Canadians prefer their cars slightly smaller, mainly because cars in Canada are slightly more expensive but also because fuel costs in Canada are slightly more expensive. Other than that, there are very few differences from one market to the other: basically exaggerated tendencies toward smaller cars as fuel prices rise and a greater likelihood of buying cheaper automobiles when the global economy struggles to grow.

Sales Stats covering the size of the Canadian new car market over the last decade reveal a peak in 2002 and a record drop in 2009. 2010 offered up a pronounced recovery, but the market isn’t even back to 2008 levels, let alone 2007 or 2002 levels.
