Canada Passenger Car Sales Figures by Model

The GCBC Analysis

Car sales in Canada haven’t been great. For the month and YTD, the segment of the market is down considerably. More cars are seeing sales drop rather than sales increase.

When you look at just the month of September, you’ll see that there was about 10,000 fewer sales than this month last year.

The YTD numbers are equally as troubling. According to the sales reports, there have been roughly 65,875 fewer sales so far this year when compared with this time last year.

Leading the pack was the Honda Civic. However, it had a rough month and hasn’t done so great YTD, seeing about a 12 percent decrease for the year and a 13 percent decrease for the month.

We fully expect car sales to continue to sink as the rest of the year plays out. It’s simply a SUV market these days.

Below you will find sales figures for all passenger cars sold in Canada broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report Automotive Sales in Canada for September 2019 beginning on Friday October 4th, 2019 beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
