Apparently Toyota’s numbers are up in Canada according to this news story.
Toyota Canada’s February sales were up more than 25 per cent compared with a year ago, suggesting a massive worldwide recall did not significantly affect the brand’s popularity in this country.
Ford Canada (NYSE:F) beat out rival General Motors to sell the most vehicles in Canada last month, capturing 16.2 per cent of the market. The company’s sales jumped by 51.1 per cent year over year to 17,910. This marks Ford’s ninth consecutive month of sales improvements and 16th consecutive month of market-share gains, the company said.
Honda’s sales were up 27 per cent …Mercedes-Benz saw Canadian sales of 1,892, up 33.3 per cent, while BMW’s sales gained 19.3 per cent to 1,420. Volkswagen sold 2,821 vehicles in February, up an astounding 63.9 per cent, while Audi’s sales rose 38.1 per cent to 866. Kia sold 3,001 vehicles, up 35.1 per cent
Feel free to post your comments below. We have three vehicles; my old Ford Taurus; our Dodge Caravan which we’re in the process of selling; and the new Toyota Sienna van my wife’s company sent her for work. I have to admit it’s an amazing vehicle to drive and gets super mileage compared to the Caravan.
