Automakers competing in the Canadian marketplace reported record sales in the first-half of 2015 as the industry’s volume increased 2.6% compared with the first-half of 2014. July’s numbers poured in this afternoon, revealing an ever so slight 0.5% uptick in new vehicle sales in the seventh month of the year.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced a modest 2% increase despite declines at Chrysler, Dodge, and Fiat. Jeep sales shot up to its highest July total ever and Ram set a monthly sales record.
Honda Canada, meanwhile, suffered car sales declines with its Civic, CR-Z, Accord, and Crosstour, but saw CR-V sales rise 2% and also sold 1936 new HR-Vs. A sharp decrease in car sales at Nissan was more than offset by the gains in its “light truck” division – Rogue volume jumped 30%; Murano volume more than doubled.
Ford was the top-selling auto brand in the country, but sales dropped 6% as the F-Series tumbled 11%. Mercedes-Benz led all premium brands with 3071 non-Sprinter sales. Among major manufacturers, Ford MoCo, General Motors, Hyundai-Kia, and the Volkswagen Group all suffered lower sales rates in July 2015 than in July 2014.
The fastest-growing brand was Volvo, thanks to a burst from the new XC90. (Acura, Lexus, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Jeep all posted gains greater than 20%.)
The sharpest decreases were recorded by Smart, Chrysler, Buick, Dodge, and Fiat – three of which are part of the FCA empire, Canada’s best-selling automaker.
