I only have official figures for the first 9 months of the year, so if you have more complete data please make sure to get in touch!
Similarly to the US market, huge petrol price increases are boosting sales of small cars to the detriment of pick-ups. For the first time in years the Ford F-Series is not the best-selling vehicle in Canada. The title goes to the Honda Civic, selling 61,712 units over the first 9 months of 2008, reaching a 4.7% share vs. 4.2% and 54,799 units for the Ford.
(The Ford F-Series would jump back to #1 just in time to keep its yearly title at the end of 2008)
The Toyota Corolla jumps 4 spots to #3 with 48,307 sales (3.7%) ahead of the Mazda3 (3.1%) and Toyota Yaris (2.7%). The Dodge Caravan drops to #7 at 31,582 sales (2.3%) in spite of the new generation going on sale. Other great performances include the Hyundai Accent at #11 and the Chevrolet Malibu at #24 (both at +24 spots).
