Canada new vehicles market

Canada new vehicles market rose moderately in September scoring the 28th consecutive growth in a string and projecting a new annual record, the second in a string with volume over the 1.8 million. Ford is struggling while Nissan is growing fast.

Economic Outlook

As Canadian politicians continue along the campaign trail ahead of the 19 October elections, the focus remains on the economy.

Canada spent the first half of the year in a technical recession and the incumbent Conservative party and the opposition are divided on whether things are getting better or worse.

Canadian growth relies heavily on consumer spending and retail sales increased for the third month in a row in July. Moreover, the Universal Child Care Benefit was paid out to Canadian families in July, which should give retail sales a transitory boost in Q3.

Nevertheless, signs of a recovery are not homogeneous; the resource sector continues to sputter along, unemployment increased in August after remaining steady for months and household debt currently sits at record-high levels.

Market Outlook

Following five years of growth, in the 2014 the Canadian automotive industry celebrated the new all time record sales in the domestic market with figures hitting the 1.7 millions for the first time.

Although not encouraging economic data, the momentum is continuing in the 2015 with the market projected at a new record, first time above the 1.8 million.

Indeed, following a first half 2.7% growth, in the third quarter the market kept the moderate speed with July sales at 177.999 (+0.8% ), August at 175.656 (+2.2%) and September at 174.674 (+3.8%).

The last was the 28th consecutive year on year growth in a string.

During the first nine months of the year, new vehicles sales had been 1.462.445, +2.5% from the correspondent period last year.

Competitive Arena

Although leading the market with a wide gap, Ford is struggling with year to date sales down 5.4%. In September sales had been 27.249 (+2.9%) with market share at 15.6%).

In second place Toyota sold 16.605 vehicles (+0.8%) while Honda has consolidated the third place with 15.201 units (+13.9%) compared with Chevrolet at 13.990 (+0.8%)  and Hyundai at 12.052 (+0.4%).

As far as the Car Groups performance, FCA is leading in the year to date ranking with share at 15.6% and a safety gap on Ford, second with 14.8% followed bt General Motors at 13.7% and Toyota and  Hyundai Kia both with 11.0%.

As far as the best-selling models,  the Ford F-Series sales rose 1.4% at 12.909, followed by the Dodge Ram, with 8.607 sales (+28.2%), the Honda Civic with 6.942 (+0.8%), the GMC Sierra with 5.253 (+9.9%) and the Hyundai Elantra with 5.040 (+41.5%).
