Overall, Canadians bought fewer cars and trucks this November than they did in November of 2008. To be more specific, passenger car sales were off less than a percentage point while light truck sales dropped nearly 5%. Still, many automakers competing in Canada posted huge sales gains in November, helped no doubt by the fact that last November was the worst November in a long time. Managing to sell more cars this November than last is a good thing, but these Numbers are still quite a ways beneath what some automakers managed in years gone by.
Arranged by total volume, these are the Sales Stats from Canada for the eleventh month of 2009. Have a look at the October edition here. Sometime around the middle of the month the sales of Ford Motor Company; General Motors; and Chrysler will be split up into their individual brands. Added to the mix will be some of the exoticar companies, as well. For now, it appears as though “Ford” beat Toyota by about a thousand vehicles – it’ll be a tighter squeeze once genuinely Ford-badged vehicles are tasked with taking the fight to Toyota.
