Car Sales Canada: 2010


The Canadian market to me has always been boring. Nothing much happens. Well things did happen in 2010. GM has been top for so long, but Ford is now top! Chrysler bumped Toyota out of third too. In fact Toyota went from 13% share to 10% in one year. BMW dropped two places and the smart car has lost its novelty too, it seems.

In the chart below, italicised figures at the end of each line indicates a drop in market share. Now for the top 25:

Rank-Brand-Sales-Share-Inc/Dec
1 Ford 267,871 17.2% 19.1
2 GM 246,668 15.8% -2.1
3 Chrysler 204074 13.1% 25.1
4 Toyota 157,723 10.1% -16.7
5 Honda 123,730 7.9% 0.7
6 Hyundai 118,507 7.6% 14.8
7 Mazda 78,662 5.1% 6.8
8 Nissan 74,780 4.8% 4.0

25 Jaguar 755 0.0% -6.1
Total sales 1,556,484 6.55% increase.

Summary: Canada doesn't get the brand variety that other markets get.
