GM Canada’s market share in the commercial van segment rose from 28.8% in October 2012 to 37.7% in October 2013. The GMC Savana took over from the Ford E-Series as the best-selling commercial van in Canada, although the E-Series’ year-to-date lead over the GMC, at 2766 units, is secure with just two months remaining.
Ford’s market share in the commercial van category slid from 41.9% a year ago to 33.2% in October 2013. Through ten months, Ford, GM, and Chrysler – the latter of which now offers two commercial vans – own 82.8% of the market for commercial vans in Canada.
Look for an all-new Transit Connect and a larger E-Series-replacing Transit to shake up the market in 2014.
