Largely to thank is a massive increase in sales of SUVs and crossovers. Although their leader, the Ford Escape, has fallen from fourth to seventh place over the course of the last year thanks to a 9% sales drop, the category has added more than 71,000 sales through the first 11 months of 2015.
Car sales, meanwhile, have tumbled 6% in 2015 and fell by more than 7% in November, specifically. Each of Canada’s seven most popular cars have sold less often in 2015 than they did in 2014.
Pickup truck volume was healthy through much of 2015 but slid slightly in November. Each of Canada’s two top-selling new vehicle nameplates are pickup trucks. One, the Ram P/U, is up 6% this year but tumbled in November. The other, Ford’s F-Series, is down 5.5% in 2015 and fell 11% last month.
The only new vehicle added to November’s list that wasn’t here one month ago is the Mercedes-Benz Metris, a commercial-oriented smaller sibling for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. 36 copies of the Metris were reported sold by Mercedes-Benz in November.
Reminder: these are year-to-date sales rankings, but you can sort vehicles by November 2015 volume by clicking the November 2015 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.
There are visible brand results, so when you sort the table by vehicle names to showcase, for example, all Chryslers together, you’ll also see the Chrysler brand’s total. Manufacturers are shown in bold to differentiate makes and models. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
