Snapshot : Canada 2000

The new Dodge Caravan came out in 2000.
It was the best selling model for the year

We go back in time to the beginning of the century. Below are sales by all the main brands, the 60 best selling models and a bonus section of the 23 best selling premium models. The data is as accurate as I can get, but sources can vary. For readers from Canada, it will surely bring back memories of brands since deleted but very much part of the landscape back then.

Brands: The US provided fourteen brands, unsurprising back then but different from today. Plymouth was on the way out and others would follow soon enough. Japanese brands were well established and the Korean duo were much the same. Europeans were trying with some success.

Models: The U.S. had 40 of the of top 60. Dodge was top with its Grand Caravan MPV. Ford closely followed with its popular F-Series and the locally made Honda Civic was third.

Premium: Japanese marques did very well here, Acura in particular. Lincoln and Cadillac had a couple of entries each.
