Canada 2017. Auto industry hit the milestone of 2 million in a year

Canada Auto Sales 2017

Canada Auto Sales hit in the 2017 the milestone of 2 million light vehicles, hitting the fifth new all time record in a string. Honda consolidates the third place ahead of a shining Chevrolet and behind Ford and Toyota.

Canadian GDP growth tapered off as expected in Q3, a stark contrast to the unsustainable stretch of gains recorded in the first half of the year. Household spending, lifted by tight labor market conditions and the stronger Canadian dollar, drove domestic demand in the quarter. Furthermore, upbeat business investment—particularly in machinery and equipment—more than offset the slump in housing investment. In the external sector, exports upset with a surprise decline in Q3 as shipments of motor vehicles fell because of broadly one-off factors.

Canadian vehicles market in the last five years has reported a steady and continue growth, hitting year after year a new all time record. In the 2017, according to data released by the Canadian Transportation Authority, the industry finally hit the milestone of 2 million vehicles sold in a celendar year, up 4.7% with 2.043.000 units.
