Canada reduced the sales speed in May when oil industry was severely hurt by forest fires in Northern Alberta. FCA recovered the leadership on Ford fueled by Dodge Gran Caravan exploit.

Market Outlook

Canada’s oil industry took another hit in May when forest fires swept through an oil-producing region in Northern Alberta. The oil industry has already suffered from last year’s collapse in energy prices, which has affected housing prices, unemployment as well as investment in oil producing regions of the country.

Following the all time record for a single month scored in the previous month, auto sales in May were still strong albeit marginally losing from year ago

Indeed, according with data released by the Canadian Transportation Authority, in May the new light vehicles sales had been 195.122, down 1.5%.

Year to date sales had been 799.286 units, up 5.6% compared to the same period of the previous year.
