Chrysler, Dodge, and Honda offered up the lone bright spots in the Canadian minivan segment in November 2013 as sales of multiple non-SUV/crossover three-row vehicles tumbled.
Compared with November 2012, the Chevrolet Orlando, Kia Rondo, Kia Sedona, Mazda 5, Nissan Quest, Toyota Sienna and, naturally, the defunct Volkswagen Routan, fell by a collective 44%.
As a group, minivans were down 8% in November. Subtracting the particularly unpopular mini-minivan trio from the mix – Orlando, 5, Rondo – the maxivans were up 11% to 5828 sales, but they’re down 0.7% to 74,121 year-to-date. That group of smaller vans was down 55% to 965 units in November; down 34% to 11,484 year-to-date.
Overall, the best-selling Dodge Grand Caravan accounted for 55% of Canada’s minivan purchases and leases in November. The Chrysler twins own 61% of the minivan market year-to-date. Year-over-year, Grand Caravan sales have risen 6% over the last three months.
