In December, specifically, gains were propelled most especially by the Ford brand, sales of which jumped 40%. Chrysler, Buick, Lincoln, and Ram improvements were also signficant. The majority of automakers reported double-digit percentage increases.
December was not a typical month for the Canadian auto industry, not even in an atypical year. Honda isn’t normally the second-best-selling auto brand in Canada; Ram is not normally the fifth-ranked brand. Ford doesn’t normally post massive year-over-year improvements. Alfa Romeo doesn’t normally sell cars here. Scion can usually sell more than 138 cars. But as way of topping off a terrific year for the industry, this was an exciting one.
