Sales of volume-brand full-size sedans slid 24% in Canada in May 2014 and are down 23% through the first five months of 2014. Exclude the much-improved Hyundai Genesis from the equation and large car sales slid 26% last month.
Over the last couple of years, May has been a big month for the Chrysler 300. Likewise, more 300s were sold in May 2014 than in any month since May 2013, bit not nearly as many as were sold in May 2013.
Sales of the Chevrolet Impala, Dodge Charger, Ford Taurus, Kia Cadenza, Nissan Maxima, and Toyota Avalon also declined last month, and in most cases quite severely.
These nine cars only accounted for 3.3% of the new cars sold in Canada in May 2014, down from 4.3% in May 2013.
