Canadian business (and maybe even a few families) registered 2549 cargo and personnel-carrying vans in November 2012, a huge 45.7% improvement compared with November 2011. This all occurred despite the fact that the best-selling commercial van, Ford’s soon-departing E-Series, slid 24% on a year-over-year basis.
GM’s twin vans took over as the two best sellers, Ford’s Transit Connect came within twelve sales of overtaking the E-Series, and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter’s leap brought the German within 43 sales of tying the usual top-selling Ford.
Through the first eleven months of 2012, the Ram Cargo Van is Chrysler Canada’s 16th-best-selling model. The NV ranks eleventh among Nissan brand vehicles, ahead of the Xterra, Quest, Armada, 370Z, Cube, Leaf, and GT-R (in that order). The Sprinter sells more often than all but four Benz model ranges. Among the whole Ford Motor Company, the E-Series ranks eighth in volume; the Transit Connect eleventh, ahead of the Flex, Expedition, and every Lincoln. Meanwhile at General Motors, the Express generates greater volume than all but eleven models; the Savana is 13th, right behind the GMc Acadia.
