The oxymoronically-named full-size minivan market grew 4% (and 7% in the first half of 2014) as Dodge and Chrysler’s share of the segment grew to 72.6% over the last six months, compared with 70.7% in the same period one year earlier.
In the shadow of the very affordable Dodge Grand Caravan, the mini-minivan trio certainly appears unpopular.
Yet there are more Canadians registering new Orlandos, Rondos, and 5s than there are Canadians buying or leasing new Honda Odysseys or Toyota Siennas.
Faint praise? Perhaps, as the Sienna and Odyssey combine to own just 26.7% of Canada’s full-size minivan category. They grabbed 45.5% of America’s minivan market in the first half of 2014, Mazda 5 excluded.
For every 20 full-size minivan sold in Canada, Mazda sells but one 5. That’s much more palatable than the one 5 for every 38 full-size minivans sold in the United States, especially considering the level of competition Mazda has in Canada, where the Rondo is typically more popular and the Orlando does generate some GM showroom activity.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page. This table is now sortable, so you can rank minivans any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
