Red font which indicates fewer sales in November 2015 than the same new vehicles generated in November 2014.
For example, all seven of Canada’s seven best-selling cars are selling less often in 2015 than they did in 2014. Collectively, the group of seven have lost 16,303 sales over the course of 2015’s first 11 months, a 6% decline.
That decline, incidentally, is worse than the loss produced by Canada’s overall passenger car market, at 5%. The Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3, Chevrolet Cruze, Volkswagen Jetta, and Ford Focus have therefore lost market share – as a collective group – in 2015.
Individually, however, three of those cars gained market share in November 2015. Honda Civic sales jumped 22% as Honda began selling the tenth-generation Civic and cleared out remaining ninth-gen cars, a clear-out which continues apace in December. In November 2014, 7.4% of the new cars sold in Canada were Civics. One year later, last month, 9.8% of the new cars sold in Canada were Civics, essentially one in ten.
Joining the Civic on the market share climb were the Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus, Detroit’s two best-selling cars in Canada. The Volkswagen Golf, Hyundai Accent, Honda Accord, Kia Soul, and Subaru Impreza were the other top sellers to post year-over-year increases in Canada in November 2015.
Reminder: these are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by November 2015 volume by clicking the November 2015 column header, or you can rank them by improvements or declines using the % columns.
Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Car column header. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format.
