2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid Profile Grey

Canadian auto sales reports for October 2011 have started to trickle in. Chrysler Canada’s four brands collectively jumped 12% in October, enough to see the group to a 14% year-to-date increase.  The Chrysler 300, Chrysler 200, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Avenger all posted triple digit year-over-year gains. 

15 of 36 brands in the table below suffered declining sales in October. One of those brands was Ford, Canada’s most popular automaker. Although the drop at Ford was slight, it’s not hard to trace the major source: F-Series sales fell 7% year-over-year.

Among other domestics, Lincoln, Buick, and Cadillac all reported losses, Chevrolet was up 6% (Orlando sales reached 407), and GMC jumped 22%. Back at the Chrysler Group, Jeep was up 8.9% and the Ram pickup enjoyed a 53% boost.

Don’t take this intro as a suggestion that good Canadian auto industry news stemmed only from American automobile manufacturers in October 2011. Toyota… yes, Toyota, advanced 2.5% in part because of rising Camry sales. The new Camry Hybrid was up 138%, for example. 

Hyundai and Kia, as usual, reported significant year-over-year gains. The biggest jump among foreign automakers (Chrysler nearly doubled up on October 2010’s total) was Land Rover’s 57% jump. Canada’s favourite luxury automaker in October was Mercedes-Benz, 335 sales ahead of BMW.

There will be plenty more to come at GoodCarBadCar.net over the next couple of weeks as best seller lists, segment-by-segment breakdowns, and general analysis is published in this space.
