Canada Car Sales Jan-Jun 2017

Ford cars are treated like royalty in Canada

GM was a long time leader here, but fell behind to Ford in 2010. The Blue Oval brand has retained the lead since, except for 2015, when Chrysler took over. Chrysler is now known as FCA, so if all their brands are added, then they just pip GM. I don't go along with that.

Light vehicle sales increased 6.5% in June, passenger cars flat and light trucks +10%. YTD the total is +5%, with cars -2% and light trucks +9%. As it is GM passed Chrysler for #2 spot, while Nissan did the same to Hyundai. Otherwise little changed. Some brands did better than others, but all in all the status quo ruled.

The chart below shows a % symbol that represents market share. The +/- column is increase or decrease based on the first six month's market share of 2017 against the full 2016 year.

Tesla is an estimate. Brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and Lotus are excluded due to not reporting sales figures for 2017 or in some cases ever! I wonder what they achieve with that decision? They need someone like me in their PR department.
