Canada 1995: Ford F-Series #1, Pontiac Sunfire lands at #4

The Pontiac Sunfire instantly becomes the #2 passenger car in Canada.

New light vehicle sales in Canada dive -6.1% year-on-year in 1995 to 1.158.435, the lowest volume so far this decade. Brand leaders Ford and Chevrolet ignore the surrounding gloom and both gain 2.8% year-on-year to improve their shares to 19.7% and 15.7% respectively, while Dodge (-6%) follows the market to remain at a strong 11.3%. Pontiac (-1.4%) improves to 7.7% share, distancing Toyota (+0.3%), GMC (-3.3%) and Honda (+2.5%) all gaining share. The tail-end of the Top 10 is struggling: Plymouth (-13.7%), Nissan (-20.3%) and Mercury (-23.1%) all freefall while Jeep (+3.6%) is up 3 spots to #11.

The Ford F-Series repeats at #1 in the models ranking.

Model-wise, the Ford F-Series (+4.6%) repeats at #1 while the Chevrolet Cavalier (+10.2%) bounces back up to #2, knocking the Dodge Caravan (+2.8%) down to #4. The Pontiac Sunfire replaces the Sunbird and spectacularly lands directly in 4th pace with almost 35.000 sales, instantly becoming Canada’s 2nd best-selling passenger car, outselling the Honda Civic (+4.5%) for just 179 units. The Ford Windstar (+95.5%) is up 15 spots to #8, with the Ford Escort (+24.8%), Toyota Corolla (+18%), Dodge Ram (+17.5%) and Ford Taurus (+15.3%) also impressive further down.
