Canadian sales of commercial vans jumped 7% to 4361 units in April 2017, a 301-unit increase compared with April 2016. Rising Ford Transit sales are largely to credit, though GM’s full-size vans posted improvements in April, as well.
Small commercial van sales, down 31% through the first-quarter of 2017, rose 2.5% in April. But full-size vans, led by the Transit, were up 8%. The big vans account for 84% of the segment’s year-to-date sales thanks to a 23% year-over-year sales increase.
