Canada 2000: Dodge Caravan (+18.7%) secures first ever win, Plymouth disappears

The Dodge Caravan is the best-selling vehicle in Canada for the first time.

The Canadian new light vehicle market is up 2.9% year-on-year in 2000 to 1.550.605 units, its 2nd time above 1.5m since we started following this market annually in 1991, and what is believed to be a new all-time record. Ford (+2.3%) almost matches the market once again to maintain its share at a high 17.1% but Chevrolet (-2.5%) skids down to 13.4% while Dodge (-6.3%) and Toyota (-5%) are hit harder just below. Honda (+3.1%) is back above Pontiac (+2%) for #5, GMC (-7.1%) remains at #7 and both Mazda (+26.1%) and Nissan (+23%) shine just below but the event is elsewhere: the Plymouth brand was discontinued this year, with the Voyager replaced by a new generation Dodge Caravan and the Neon rebranded Chrysler, which lifts the latter up 161% and 6 spots to #8 brand.

Accordingly, the Dodge Caravan (+18.7%) surges into its first ever Canadian pole position with a record 87.737 units, ending 6 consecutive years of reign by the Ford F-Series (-10.9%). The Honda Civic (+3.9%) remains in third place and #1 passenger car, distancing the Ford Windstar (-10.6%) while the Ford Focus (+414.6%) spectacularly ends its first full year in market at #5 and #2 passenger car above the Chevrolet Cavalier (-9.4%), Pontiac Sunfire (-11.7%) and Toyota Corolla (-2.2%). If the Plymouth Neon ranked #69 last year, the rebadged Chrysler Neon lands directly at #11…
