New light vehicle sales in Canada are now in unchartered territory after 6 consecutive record years and 9 consecutive year-on-year gains: they endure a 5th year-on-year decline in a row – something that had not happened yet this decade – the 7th drop in the past 9 months and, worse, the negative trend seems to be accelerating as July marks the largest year-on-year drop since October 2016 at -3.5% to 175.785 units. As a result and for the first time in 2018, the YTD tally is now down (gasp!) by 0.5% at 1.217.542. If this decline is maintained until the end of the year, 2018 would be the first year since 2010 that light vehicle sales drop year-on-year in Canada. According to local consultancy Desrosiers whose figures are slightly lower due to the absence of some luxury brands such as Tesla, exactly as in the neighbouring U.S. even light trucks are down this month at -1.1% to 122.299 but improve their share to 69.8% vs. 68% a year ago while passenger cars continue to freefall at -9% to 53.018 and 30.2% vs. 32% in July 2017. Year-to-date, light trucks are up 3.3% to 849.595 and 70.1% share vs 67.4% over the same period in 2017 and passenger cars are also down 9% to 362.399 and 29.9% share vs. 32.6%.

The Honda CR-V is up 20% year-on-year in Canada this month.

There are a lot of surprising moves in the July groups ranking: below the traditional leaders Ford Motor (+0.9%) and General Motors (-2.4%), Hyundai-Kia surges 9% to third place with 12.4% share vs. just 9.9% (-2.7%) so far in 2018, in complete opposite direction from its very difficult year in the U.S. Toyota Motor (-1.4%) is knocked down to 4th place but Honda Motor (-0.5%) leaps up two spots on June to #5, eclipsing FCA down an abysmal 33% year-on-year to #6, the group’s lowest ranking since we started following Canadian groups in September and to be compare with the outright pole position it held last January and February! Nissan Motor (+1.2%) is down to #7 ahead of the Volkswagen Group (-6.5%) while Daimler (-4.5%) and the BMW Group (-6.5% struggle).

Kia deliveries are up 7.9% year-on-year in July.

Brand-wise, Ford (+1.5%) is the only one (well) above 10% share at 15.5%, distancing three declining marques: Toyota (-0.4%), Honda (-0.9%) and Chevrolet (-5.3%) with Honda snapping the #3 spot YTD off Chevrolet. Hyundai replicates its parent company’s gain at +9% in 5th place, overtaking Nissan (-1.8%) with Kia (+7.9%) and Mazda (+5.9%) the only two other Top 10 brands in positive. Just outside the Top 10, we have part of the explanation for FCA’s freefall in July: Jeep drops 37.1% and Ram falls 22.8%, marking the first year-on-year decline for Jeep this year (it was up 45.7% in February and 43.8% in March) but the fourth consecutive double-digit fall for Ram. Genesis (+145.5%), Volvo (+47.5%), Bentley (+38.5%), Chrysler (+38.2%), Tesla (+28.6%), Buick (+16.4%), Infiniti (+14.6%), Subaru (+13.2%), Alfa Romeo (+12.2%) and Mitsubishi (+11.6%) defy the challenging market conditions to deliver double-digit gains.

The Ascent has landed in Canada and Subaru is up 12.9%.

No surprise atop the models ranking: the Ford F-Series (-1%) remains by far the best-seller in the country, but the big news is only 4 nameplates in the July Top 15 manage to return a year-on-year gain. The Honda Civic (+8%) leaps up one spot on June to #2, overtaking the Ram Pickup (-23%) and the Honda CR-V (+20%) posts the largest gain in the Top 20 to consolidate its title of #1 SUV in Canada. That’s the only two uplifts in the Top 10. Then the Hyundai Tucson (+15%) and the Chevrolet Cruze (+8%) complete the list in the Top 15. Reversely, the Ford Escape (-15%), Jeep Cherokee (-13%) and Hyundai Elantra (-10%) are hit the hardest.

Genesis sales are up 145.5%, the largest gain in market for July.

Further down, notice the VW Tiguan (+67%) ending the month just one sale off a Top 20 ranking, with the Ford Transit (+214%), VW Atlas (+98%), Buick Encore (+48%), Nissan Qashqai (+45%), Nissan Sentra (+43%), Kia Soul (+42%), Mercedes C-Class (+35%) and Mazda CX-3 (+27%) also very dynamic in the Top 50. The Hyundai Kona (#26) breaks its Canadian ranking record and is the only recent launch (<12 months) in the Top 50, followed by the Nissan Kicks at #55 (+30), Ford Ecosport at #64 (+7) and the Subaru Ascent landing directly at #100 for its very first appearance in the Canadian sales charts.

There’s nothing stopping Canadian new light vehicle sales, on track to post a stunning 6th consecutive all-time record and 9th consecutive gain with First Half deliveries up 0.2% to a new record 1.041.757 units. However at end June the market was on a 4-month streak of consecutive year-on-year declines, something that had only happened once before this decade in Canada (July-October 2016). According to local consultancy Desrosiers whose figures are slightly lower due to the absence of some luxury brands such as Tesla, light trucks continue to pull the market up at +4.1% to 728.185 sales and a record 70.2% share vs. 67.3% over the same period in 2017 whereas passenger cars sink 9.2% to 308.492 and just 29.8% share vs. 32.7% a year ago.

Mitsubishi gains 17.7% partly thanks to the arrival of the Eclipse Cross.

Group-wise, Ford Motor (-2.9%) remains in the lead but General Motors (+3%) ends the Semester just 633 sales below just as FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles dives 11.1% to 12.9%, losing the 2nd place in the process. Toyota Motor (+1.6%) and Honda Motor (+0.9%) round up the Top 5, kicking Hyundai-Kia (-4.9%) down to #6. The Volkswagen Group (+13.9%) and Jaguar-Land Rover (+8%) perform best below. In the brands ranking, Ford (-2.9%) remains comfortably in the lead ahead of Toyota (+2.4%) while Chevrolet (+6.5%) climbs onto the podium, knocking Honda (+0.8%) down to #4. Jeep (+21.5%) and Mazda (+5.9%) also shine in the Top 10, with Volvo (+42.6%), Mitsubishi (+17.7%), Volkswagen (+16.7%), Land Rover (+14.7%) and Audi (+10.5%) also scoring double-digit gains further down. Tesla surges 217% to just under 5.000 units, thanks to an all-time record in June. Below 1.000 sales over the period, Alfa Romeo (+298.2%) and Genesis (+159.2%) shoot up.

Volkswagen is up 16.7% thanks to the Tiguan.

Over in the models aisle, the Ford F-Series (-8%) is comfortably headed towards a 10th consecutive year as the best-selling vehicle in Canada and 15 wins over the past 16 years (only interruption was by the Honda Civic in 2008), but a steep decline means no more volume records. The Ram Pickup (-16%) and Honda Civic (-4%) also dive but hold onto their 2017 ranking. The Chevrolet Silverado (+8%) overtakes its posh twin the GMC Sierra (-5%) to snap the 4th spot overall, making it 4 full-size pickups in the Top 5, one more than in the neighbouring U.S. The Honda CR-V (+18%) leaps past the Toyota RAV4 (+5%) to grab the SUV crown with the Ford Escape (+1%) and Nissan Rogue (-1%) both breaking into the Top 10 to make it 4 SUVs in the Top 10 and just two passenger cars: the Civic and Toyota Corolla (-11%).

The Hyundai Kona is the most popular new launch over the period.

Further down the ranking, the Nissan Qashqai (+821%), Jeep Compass (+186%), VW Tiguan (+104%), Jeep Wrangler (+99%), Subaru Crosstrek (+97%), Mitsubishi Outlander (+60%), Mazda CX-3 (+40%), Audi Q5 (+31%), Honda Odyssey (+28%) and Toyota Tundra (+25%) make themselves noticed – that’s 8 SUVs in the 10 biggest gainers… Only one recent launch (<12 months) manages to crack the Canadian Top 50: the Hyundai Kona at #43, it is followed by the Ford Ecosport (#86), Tesla Model 3 (#109) up to #25 in June, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross (#147), Kia Stinger (#164) and Range Rover Velar (#169).

Like last month, under a year-on-year decline in June (-0.4%) hides one of the largest monthly volumes in Canadian history at 202.701, precisely the 4th best ever below May 2017 (216.861)May 2018 (215.903) and June 2017 (203.495) as well as the 5th time Canada sales cross the symbolic 200.000 milestone – add April 2016 (200.607). Year-to-date volumes edge up 0.2% to 1.041.757. In the groups ranking, even though it drops 4.8% year-on-year, Ford Motor hits a splendid 15.4% share and reclaims the YTD lead off General Motors (+1.8%) while Toyota Motor (-0.6%) overtakes FCA down a disastrous 17.6%. Jaguar-Land Rover (+8.7%), Hyundai-Kia (+4.7%), Nissan Motor (+3.9%) and the Volkswagen Group (+2.4%) shine whereas the BMW Group (-2.7%) and Daimler AG (-2.2%) disappoint.

Tesla breaks into the Top 20 brands in Canada thanks to the Model 3.

The brands podium is entirely in negative with Ford (-4.6%), Toyota (-1.1%) and Honda (-2.4%) reproducing the May order, while Chevrolet soars 6.6% but is stuck in 4th place, Nissan (+0.9%) is back above Hyundai (+5.3%) and Mazda (+7.8%) posts the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 10. Ram (-20.6%) and Dodge (-31.7%) implode. Below, Alfa Romeo (+184.5%), Genesis (+175%), Volvo (+44.3%), Land Rover (+23.3%), Mitsubishi (+18.1%), Infiniti (+16.3%), Buick (+12.5%) and Porsche (+8.8%) impress. But the best performer in Canada this month is Tesla, up a whopping 524% year-on-year and 12 spots on May to break into the Top 20 for the first time with a record 2.527 sales, that’s no less tan 4 times the brand’s previous volume record of 633 in September 2017! This is of course due to the gearing up of the Model 3 hitting a record 1.850 units vs. 456 last month, but also the Model S posting its 2nd largest ever volume at 295 (pb 325 March 2016) and the Model X breaking its volume record at 382 (pb 360 in December 2017).

The Honda CR-V soars 22% to remain the best-selling SUV in Canada.

Model-wise, no surprises on top with the Ford F-Series (-13%), Ram Pickup (-19%) and Honda Civic (-3%) on the podium followed by the Chevrolet Silverado (+8%), GMC Sierra (-4%), Honda CR-V (+22%) and Toyota RAV4 (+1%) exactly replicating the YTD order for the Top 7. Below, the Nissan Qashqai (+164%), VW Tiguan (+117%), Subaru Crosstrek (+64%), Mazda CX-3 (+59%), Jeep Cherokee (+41%), Toyota Tundra (+37%), Ford Transit (+34%), Kia Soul (+26%), Toyota Camry (+25%) and Mazda CX-5 (+18%) all post very solid gains in the Top 50. The most popular recent launch (<12 months) is the Tesla Model 3 shooting up 88 spots on May to break into the Top 25, of course the highest ranking ever hit by a Tesla nameplate in Canada. It is followed by the Hyundai Kona (#29), Ford Ecosport (#71) and Nissan Kicks (#85).

Although the Canadian market does dip by a tiny 0.4% year-on-year to 215.903 units this month, it’s from an exceptionally high comparison set a year ago, as May 2017 remains to this day the biggest month in Canadian history at 216.861 registrations. This way, May 2018 is the second highest month ever and only the 4th time the market surpasses 200.000 monthly sales after April 2016 (200.607) and June 2017 (203.495). The year-to-date volume is now up 0.4% to a record 839.056 units after five months, but the market has now been in decline for three consecutive months, something that hasn’t happened in over 5 years – since March 2013. According to local consultancy Desrosiers whose figures are slightly lower due to the absence of some luxury brands such as Tesla, light trucks remain robust at +4% to 147.337 sales or 68.4% of the market, with passenger cars once again solely responsible for the market decline at -9.4% to 68.070 or 31.6% share. YTD light trucks lift up 4.8% to 589.183 or 70.4% vs. 67.3% a year ago while passenger cars drop 9.5% to 247.339 or 29.6% share vs. 32.7% over the same period in 2017.

The Honda CR-V surges 28% to remain the #1 SUV in the country.

Ford Motor remains at the helm of the groups ranking despite a 3.3% year-on-year drop to 15.4% share, still well above its YTD level of 14.8%, General Motors gains a cool 5.4% to 15.2% but FCA tumbles down 14.8% to 13.1%, distancing Toyota Motor (+0.9%) at 11.2%, Honda Motor (+3.4%) at 10% and Hyundai-Kia (-6.8%) at 9.9%. Jaguar Land Rover (+15.8%), Daimler AG (+10.5%), the Volkswagen Group (+10.4%), BMW Group (+8.5%) and Nissan Motors (+4.3%) are all in great shape. Brand-wise, Ford (-3.1%) easily wins at 15.1% share just as its four direct followers all beat the market: Toyota (+1.9%), Honda (+3.2%) and Chevrolet (+8.5%). Mazda (+6.9%) and Nissan (+3.2%) are also solid but Ram (-16.1%), Hyundai (-8.9%) and Kia (-3.5%) suffer. Further down, Genesis (+125.8%), Alfa Romeo (+123.5%), Volvo (+41%), Land Rover (+28.7%), Tesla (+28.6%), Mitsubishi (+20.1%), Bentley (+20%), Buick (+14.8%), Smart (+11.8%) Volkswagen (+11.4%) and Mercedes (+10.5%) are the best performers.

The Ford F-Series posts the biggest gain in the Top 5 at +5% to lodge a new all-time volume record at 16.039 units, beating its previous best of 15.660 established in June 2017. The Ram Pickup (-17%), Toyota Corolla (-7%) and GMC Sierra (-3%) all lose ground year-on-year and the Honda Civic edges up 4% in third place. The Honda CR-V surges 28% to #6, cementing its YTD lead in the SUV segment above the Toyota RAV4 up just 3% in May. The Dodge Grand Caravan (-37%), Hyundai Elantra (-29%) and Ford Escape (-8%) are hit hard. Further down the ranking, the best performers include the Nissan Leaf (+643%), Subaru Crosstrek (+95%), Mitsubishi Outlander (+88%), VW Tiguan (+79%), Jeep Cherokee (+73%), Audi Q5 (+58%), Jeep Compass (+47%), Buick Encore (+39%) and Toyota Prius (+39%). With the Nissan Qashqai (+899%), VW Atlas (+396%) and Toyota C-HR (+6%) now above the 1-year mark, the title of best-selling newcomer goes to the Ford Ecosport (#88) ahead of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross (#145), Kia Stinger (#165) and Range Rover Velar (#166).

New light vehicle sales in Canada post a second consecutive year-on-year decline in April at -2.6% to 192.297 units, but thanks to a strong start of the year the YTD tally remains at an all-time record level, up 0.5% on the previous record established last year at 623.153 registrations. This is the first back-to-back decline of 2018. According to local consultancy Desrosiers whose figures are slightly lower due to the absence of some luxury brands such as Tesla, light trucks stay in positive at +2.2% to 133.773 sales or 69.7% of the market, with passenger cars solely responsible for the market decline, hit a steep 12.4% to 58.083 or 30.3% share.

In contrast, Jaguar Land Rover (+22.6%), Daimler AG (+8.5%), the BMW Group (+8.2%), the Volkswagen Group (+7.9%) and Nissan Motor (+6.5%) both post solid gains with Toyota Motor (-0.3%) almost stable.

The Canadian new light vehicle market records its first year-on-year drop of 2018 at -0.5% to 186.993 registrations, but thanks to solid results during the first two months of the year, the year-to-date volume breaks another record at 430.856 units, up 1.9% on the previous record established in 2017. According to local consultancy Desrosiers whose figures are slightly lower due to the absence of some luxury brands such as Tesla, light trucks progress 5.2% to 132.515 sales or 71.1% of the market whereas passenger cars drop 12.4% to 53.932 or just 28.9% share. Year-to-date, light trucks gain 6.4% to 308.072 or 71.8% but passenger cars decline 8.2% to 121.186 or 28.2%. General Motors spectacularly regains control of the groups ranking both in March wth 16.1% share and year-to-date at 15.1%, leaving Ford Motor (13.9%), FCA (13.1%) and Toyota Motor (11.3%) far in the distance. FCA still ranks #2 YTD but is only 70 sales above Ford Motor. The Volkswagen Group posts a very satisfying 23.6% year-on-year gain this month and 26.2% YTD.

The Chevrolet Silverado is also up 7% this month in Canada.

Over in the brands ranking, Ford remains comfortably ahead at 13.5% share but drops 2.3% whereas Toyota soars 9.7% to 10.1%., the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 8. Chevrolet (+1.3%), Honda (-8.4%) and Nissan (-3.7%) round up the Top 5 while Hyundai is hit hard at -12.2%. Once again Jeep posts the biggest improvement among mass brands with a 43.8% surge lifting it to #9 just below Ram (+6.1%). It ranks #6 over Q1 2018. Below, Volvo (+39.4%), Mitsubishi (+39%), Volkswagen (+31.8%), Tesla (+28.6%), Lincoln (+26.1%) and Audi (+14%) deliver double-digit year-on-year gains while among smaller brands Alfa Romeo (+492.3%) and Genesis (+320%) stand out. There is also a handful of deep dives, the worst all being the property of FCA: Fiat (-84.6%), Dodge (-43.8%), Chrysler (-43.6%) and Maserati (-38.5%).

The Jeep Wrangler breaks it all-time volume record in Canada this month.

The Ford F-Series overcomes a steep 11% year-on-year drop to dominate a Canadian models ranking skewed particularity heavily towards full-size pickups this month: it distances the Ram Pickup (+7%), Chevrolet Silverado (+7%) and GMC Sierra (-5%), monopolising the Top 4 for the second time in the past four months. Traditional best-seller in the passenger car segment, the Honda Civic holds onto its throne but drops 23% to #5 overall. The Toyota RAV4 (+21%) leads all SUVs, unperturbed by the impending arrival of a new generation, ahead of the Honda CR-V (+11%), Nissan Rogue (-6%) and Ford Escape (-1%).

The new model propels VW Tiguan sales up 150% in Canada this month.

Just outside the Top 10, the Jeep Wrangler posts another fantastic result: up a whopping 217% on March 2017 to 3.839 sales – a new all-time volume record for the nameplate. The Jeep Compass (+987%), VW Tiguan (+150%), Subaru Crosstrek (+102%), Honda Odyssey (+49%), Mitsubishi Outlander (+49%), Mazda CX-3 (+41%), Mazda CX-5 (+36%), Audi Q5 (+32%) are the most dynamic in the remainder of the Top 50.

This month we welcome no less than five newcomers in the Canadian sales charts: the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross at #133, the Jaguar E-Pace at #191, BMW X2 at #200, Volvo XC40 at #205 and Genesis G70 at #237.

Following up on five consecutive record years and a new January record last month, the Canadian new light vehicle market doesn’t seem to want to slow down with sales up another 2.2% year-on-year in February to 126.026 units, the 4th consecutive February record Canada has posted. Accordingly, the year-to-date tally, up a sturdy 3.9% to 243.770, is a new all-time record after two months. Continuing on a years-long trend, passenger cars continue to skid down 6% to 35.879 and just 28.6% share whereas light trucks continue to gallop ahead at +5.6% to 89.651 and 71.4% of the Canadian market, figures being slightly lower than above as Desrosiers doesn’t include some luxury brands such as Tesla.

The Tiguan (+76%) helps Volkswagen up 32.3% in February in Canada.

Group-wise, FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles dominates for the second month running despite sales down 1.2% to 15% share, less than 400 units above Ford down 2.4% to 14.7%. General Motors posts another impressive score, up 8.8% to 14.3% and up 11.7% year-to-date. Toyota Motor (-1.3%), Honda Motor (+1.5%) and Nissan Motor (+6.1%) follow but it’s the Volkswagen Group that lodges the best performance at +27.2%. In the brands ranking, Ford remains leader by far in spite of a 2% drop to 14.3% share, well ahead of Toyota (+0.9%) at 9.6% while Chevrolet soars 21% to 8.7%, overtaking Honda (+2.5%). Jeep once again stuns with a 45.7% surge at #7, Volkswagen gains 32.3%, with Alfa Romeo (+2525%), Volvo (+34.6%), Tesla (+28.6%), Mitsubishi (+27.2%), Genesis (+25%), Audi (+21.9%) the other carmakers managing a 20% gain or more.

The Ford Ecosport is up 76 spots on last month to #72.

Unsurprisingly, the Ford F-Series remains the most popular nameplate in the country but, like in January, it posts an uncharacteristically steep 16% year-on-year drop. The Ram Pickup does a little better in 2nd place at -10% while the Honda Civic drops 5% at #3. The Honda CR-V (+5%), Chevrolet Silverado (+9%) and Nissan Rogue (+8%) on the other hand all beat the market while the Jeep Wrangler impresses again with a 175% surge at #10, remaining in 5th place year-to-date.

Just as its neighbour the U.S. has finally plateaued and swung into negative territory, 2017 is a historic year for Canadian new light vehicles sales: for the first time in the country’s history, more than two million vehicles found a new home in a single year (2.043.500) thanks to a 4.6% year-on-year uplift. This means the Canadian market has now grown for eight consecutive years (the last recorded drop was in 2009) and has broken its all-time volume record for the past five straight years, lifting it from 1.744.600 in 2013. According to local consultancy Desrosiers whose figures are slightly lower due to the absence of some luxury brands such as Tesla, light truck sales in Canada are up a whopping 8.7% year-on-year to 1.398.975 units or 68.6% share vs. 66% a year ago whereas passenger cars are down 3.4% to 639.823 and 31.4% share vs. 34% in 2016.

The Ram Pickup ends 2017 with a new sales record and only 1.535 below the 100.000 mark.

Ford Motor remains the most popular auto group in the country but sees its share thaw to 15.1% due to a meagre 1.3% sales improvement. Reversely, General Motors is catching up fast with a 13.3% sure lifting it from 13.7% and #3 last year to 14.8% and #2 in 2017. FCA, #1 in 2015, is down 3.5% to #3. Honda Motor (+5.7%), Daimler AG (+8.2%), Nissan Motor (+8.3%), Jaguar Land Rover (+13.1%) and the Volkswagen Group (+16.9%) also outpace the market. Brand-wise, Ford (+1.4%) remains comfortably in the lead, however all its immediate followers advance faster: Toyota (+4.7%), Honda (+6.3%), Chevrolet (+12.9%) and Nissan (+10%). GMC (+17.5%) and Ram (+11.2%) also post double-digit gains while Hyundai (-6%) and Dodge (-8%) go backwards. Below, Tesla (+95.7%), Maserati (+83.8%), Jaguar (+52.3%), Audi (+17.9%), Porsche (+16.8%), Volvo (+16.4%), Volkswagen (+16%), Mercedes (+11.8%) and Lexus (+10%) make themselves noticed. Alfa Romeo (from 85 to 1.113 sales) and Genesis (from 93 to 525) shoot up thanks to new models.

The Honda Civic is the best-selling passenger car in Canada for the 20th year in a row.

The Ford F-Series is the best-selling vehicle in Canada for the 9th consecutive year and the 14th time in the past 15 years (only interruption was by the Honda Civic in 2008). Thanks to deliveries up 7%, the F-Series breaks the annual volume record for any nameplate in a single year in Canada for the 6th time in the past eight years (and as early as end-November), lifting it to 155.290, the first time above 150.000 units. Note the F-Series is the only nameplate in the history of automobile in Canada to have ever crossed the 100.000 annual unit-milestone, and has done so for the past 6 years. The Ram Pickup does not end far off this year though: thanks to sales up 11%, it also breaks its own annual volume record to lift it to 98.465. In third place overall, the Honda Civic (+7%) is the best-selling passenger car in Canada for the 20th year in a row, comfortably distancing the Toyota Corolla (+10%) at 69.030 units vs. 50.332 while the Hyundai Elantra (-6%) is out of the Top 10.

The Chevrolet Silverado (+31%) helps GM up 13.3% in 2017.

With the GMC Sierra surging 21% to #4 and the Chevrolet Silverado soaring 31% to #5, the Canadian sales charts has four full-size pickup trucks in the Top 5 for the first time ever. The Toyota RAV4 (+4%) remains the best-selling SUV but Honda CR-V (+13%) is catching up fast and ends the year only 451 units below. The Hyundai Tucson (+28%), VW Golf (+22%), Chevrolet Equinox (+27%), Kia Forte (+33%), Subaru Impreza (+30%) and VW Tiguan (+34%) also impress in the Top 50. The Nissan Qashqai (#56) is the most popular new launch for 2017, ahead of the VW Atlas (#97), Toyota C-HR (#106) and Chevrolet Bolt (#158).

The Canadian new light vehicle market is down year-on-year for only the second time in 2017 after last April with November sales at -1% to 159.014 units. However the year-to-date volume remains frankly in record territory at 1.918.827 deliveries, up 5.2% on the previous record established last year, headed towards a fifth consecutive annual record and now certain to break the 2 million annual unit milestone for the first time in history. According to local consultancy Desrosiers which has a slightly lower sales total due to the exclusion of a handful of luxury brands, light trucks gain 2.7% to 114.592 units or a gargantuan 72.2% share vs. 68.3% year-to-date whereas passenger cars freefall 10% to 44.061 units or just 27.8% share vs. 31.7% so far in 2017.

Ford Motor reclaims the top of the group ladder it holds year-to-date despite a 2.8% decline to 14.4% share, edging past General Motors down a harsh 17.2% (after a 26.5% surge last month) while Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (-7.8%) rounds up the podium. The Volkswagen Group (+27.4%), Daimler (+7.9%) and Nissan Motor (+7.8%) are among the best performing groups. Brand-wise, Ford leads but is down 2.8% ahead of Toyota (+3.4%) while Chevrolet is back up to #3 despite a 13.6% drop, distancing Honda (+1.2%) and Nissan (+8%). Acura (+10.1%), Mercedes (+14.1%), Mitsubishi (+14.8%), Kia (+15.5%), Audi (+19.3%), Porsche (+30.3%), Volkswagen (+31.8%), Tesla (+44.6%) and Volvo (+61.1%) post the largest year-on-year gains and on the other end of the scale Smart (-91.5%), Bentley (-73.2%), Fiat (-66.1%), Chrysler (-43.6%), Buick (-36.5%), GMC (-20.1%) and Dodge (-16.6%) suffer the most.

Unsurprisingly the Ford F-Series is the best-selling nameplate in the country once again with sales up 11% to a new November record of 12.548, with the Ram Pickup (+3%), Honda CR-V (+36%), GMC Sierra (-11%) and Chevrolet Silverado (+3%) all up one spot on October, benefiting from the fall of the Honda Civic (-11%) from #2 last month to #7 in November. The Toyota RAV4 (+6%) becomes the best-selling Toyota in Canada year-to-date, passing the Corolla, while the Hyundai Tucson (+20%), Jeep Grand Cherokee (+26%), VW Golf (+31%), Subaru Impreza (+38%), Kia Sorento (+45%), Mazda CX-3 (+51%), Subaru Crosstrek (+60%), Jeep Wrangler (+65%), Mercedes GLC (+66%), Toyota Camry (+73%) and VW Tiguan (+76%) are among the biggest gainers in the Top 50. The Nissan Qashqai is up a further six spots to #26, cementing its domination of recent launches above the VW Atlas (#65), Toyota C-HR (#89), Chevrolet Bolt (#105), Kia Niro (#145) and Range Rover Velar (#154).
