FCA Canada’s best June since 1985

by David Zatz on

FCA Canada (formerly Chrysler Canada) reported sales of 27,217 vehicles in June 2015, the best June sales for the division since 1985.  FCA Canada was the largest builder of vehicles in Canada.

All-time record sales were set by Chrysler Town & Country, with 164% of last June’s sales. Record June sales were set by Ram pickups, Cherokee, Challenger, Ram as a whole, and Jeep as a whole. Overall minivan sales rose by 14%, rising from 5,420 in June 2014 to  6,186 in June 2015.

Overall, FCA had a 15.3% market share in Canada, down 0.1% from June 2014; year to date, sales are up 1.1% to 148,132.

The next best company was Ford, with sales down 6.3%, partly due to low availability of F-150 pickups; their market share was 15.1%, down from 17.6%, with 134,096 year to date sales. Ford was down 13% in June. General Motors followed with a 13.6% June market share, still ahead of Toyota’s 11.6% share.

For the year to date, the order is the same. While GM (7.2%) and Toyota (4.3%) both rose, year-to-date, Hyundai/Kia fell by 3.7%. Volkswagen rose by 21% but is hardly a challenger so far with 53,494 sales year to date; they trail Nissan by around ten thousand sales so far in 2015. Other companies in the sales list, provided by Bill Cawthon, are, in order of sales, Mazda, Subaru, Mercedes, BMW, Mitsubishi, Jaguar/Land Rover, and Volvo, with a surprisingly low 2,316 sales.

Year to date, the most popular Mopar in Canada is clearly the Ram pickup series, though that includes numerous vehicles. Caravan, once the perennial most popular vehicle in Canada, has long been relegated to also-ran status, behind the #1 Ford F-series and #2 Ram pickup. After that comes the Cherokee, charging ahead from last year’s Mopar #5 spot, Journey, and Wrangler. The next best, Chrysler 200, has a bit more than half the sales of Wrangler, but — unlike its performance in the US — beats the Grand Cherokee.

The large, Canadian-built Charger, 300, and Challenger all fall behind the Town & Country, with sales of under 3,500 units each. All still beat the twin Fiats — and in Canada, the 500L outperformed the 500, the reverse of the American situation. The Mexican-made ProMaster City beat the Cargo Van.
