Volkswagen’s Passat & CC models saw an uptick in sales to round off what was its best month in 2017 to date in the Canadian market. Jumps in the sale fo this and Honda’s Accord and the Mazda 6 helped mitigate the damage in what was another difficult month for midsize car sales in Canada. This time last year we saw a bumper month for the segment; that feat has not been repeated here with most brands seeing huge drops in the mid-segment.
Additions to the Hybrid and Electric market in Canada have helped drive the momentum behind this emerging technology. Mistubishi’s ageing i-MiEV dwindled from 8 sales in June 2016 to just 6 this year, and the Toyota Prius lost a few perhaps to the increased choice now available in this segment, but overall figures look healthy.
Chevrolet’s Bolt, which arrived in the Canadian market at the start of the year, is seeing sturdy growth so far, though only in March did it tick over the 200 mark.
