64% of the minivans and an even more impressive 72% of the “full-size” minivans sold in Canada in 2014 were Windsor, Ontario-assembled Dodge Grand Caravans and Chrysler Town & Countrys. 85% of the FCA-built twins sold in Canada were Grand Caravans.
Minivan sales improved in Canada in 2014, but the category as a whole lost market share. (The oxymoronically-named full-size minivan subset grew at a slightly faster rate than the overall industry, thus increasing market share.) 5.1% of the new vehicles sold in Canada in calendar year 2014 were minivans and small MPVs, down from 5.2% in 2013.
The smaller trio of products certainly suffered as Chevrolet Orlando volume tumbled 43% and sales of the still-fresh second-generation Kia Rondo surprisingly slid 12%.
But the bigger vans were more common this year than last, increasing their collective total by 5856 units despite the loss of the forgettable Volkswagen Routan and the Nissan Quest and slightly slower Toyota Sienna volume through much of the year.
