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.
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.
