Canada Auto Brand Marketshare in April,2012

Chrysler Canada sold 24,540 new vehicles in April 2012, a gain of 3% compared with April 2011. The group's leading brand, Dodge, was down 20%, though the old Dodge/Ram tandem combined for 15,281 sales, nearly enough to topple the Toyota brand.

Canada's top-ranked brand in April was Ford, though sales slid 5%. Blue Oval sales are down 2% so far this year. GM also took a plunge, down 7% on the whole, with only one of its four brands reporting anything other than a decrease. GMC's 2% increase, mixed with Nissan's 6% loss, was enough to knock Nissan out of the top ten. Nissan ranked sixth just last month.







Canada's new vehicle market grew 5.2% over the course of the first four months of 2012, however. Passenger cars accounted for 48.4% of all sales. General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler brought in 44.2% of all sales.
