New light vehicle sales in Canada are up 1% year-on-year in June to 171,825 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 884,618 units, up 2% on 2012. Even though their volumes slow down slightly compared to last month, both the Ford F-Series and the Dodge RAM are still way ahead of the competition and of their year-ago scores: up 12% and 16% year-on-year respectively to 11,051 and 7,344 units, bringing their respective year-to-date totals to 61,677 (+17%) and 41,907 (+19%). The other two pick-up trucks in the Top 30 are also on fire: the GMC Sierra is up 3 spots on May to #5 and the Chevrolet Silverado up 5 to #8.
In the meantime, the battle for the title of best-selling Passenger Car in Canada – which has been the property of the Honda Civic for an astounding 15 consecutive years – is heating up: only 27 units separate the two models this month and if the Civic has the advantage in June (5,750 vs. 5,723), it is lagging behind the Elantra year-to-date (28,558 vs. 28,863)… The second half of the year will be fascinating to follow and Hyundai would achieve a very significant milestone in Canada is the Elantra managed to beat the Civic over the Full Year… Notice also the Kia Sorento up 58% on June 2012 to #23, the Hyundai Sonata up 42% to #24, Nissan Sentra up 32% to #27, Honda Accord up 162% to #28, Chevrolet Trax up 31 spots to #49 and the Dodge Dart down 10 to #56.
