CANADA AUTO SALES SEPTEMBER 2009

Once again General Motors tops Ford and Toyota in Canada. And though GM’s Numbers in this edition of Sales Stats appear to have taken a significant tumble, GM Canada would like you to know that the four brands in the company’s future (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC) sold at a rate 5.6% higher than in September of last year.
Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, and Audi have already been more deeply analysed here on GoodCarBadCar.net and other automakers will submit to a deeper perusal later. For now, auto manufacturers competing in the Great White North (still quite green outside GoodCarBadCar Towers) are listed below in the order of their total sales.
Don’t forget to say a special, “Hello” to Subaru and BMW; both of which posted huge gains last month. Heeeeyyy. Overall, the Canadian car market was down 9.4%. Cheaperish fuel no doubt contributed to the increase in truck sales compared with the very expensive fuel of last September and the correspondingly lower truck/SUV/van sales at that time. Overall, light truck sales were up 4% to 62,034, not far behind the car market’s total of 67,469. One example? Combined sales of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra were up 74% in September.
