Canada November. Toyota & Hyundai shine in a stable market

Canada Auto Sales BMW-X5-2019

Canada Auto Sales were moderately positive in November with 145.578 sales (+1.9%), recovering from the negative tone of previous months. However the 2018 is still negative, projected to end just over 2 million units. The Jeep Wrangler scored an impressive perfomance.

Economic Environment

Although available data suggests growth may have moderated in the third quarter, analysts remain upbeat about economic prospects for the remainder of the year. August’s firm growth reading was driven mainly by the energy and services sectors. Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, unemployment in October ticked down as the number of job seekers declined.

A tighter labor market is expected to push up wage growth through year-end, which should keep household-spending growth afloat. Moreover, October’s modest recovery in housing starts confirmed the stabilization of the housing market.

Meanwhile, Ivey’s PMI marked an impressive uptick in the same month on the heels of the newly-agreed United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Firms breathed a huge sigh of relief on the trade resolution and non-residential investment is likely to remain buoyant through the end of the year as a consequence.
