Rankings of top-selling auto brands in Canada in February 2015

Almost 110,000 new cars were sold in Canada in February 2015. The growth of auto sales amounts to 3500 cars or 3% compared to the previous year.Despite the general fall in sales by 9%, Ford managed to become the best-selling brand in Canada this February. Among the Ford-associated brands, Lincoln became the most successful one with the growth of 138%. However, if we take all the FCA-associated brands, including Chrysler, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep, we will find out that their sales have excelled Ford with more than 3,500 sold cars.

The most rapidly growing brands for the period in Canada are Mini and Lincoln. As for volume brands, GMC, Chrysler, GMC, Toyota, and Nissan were growing with the fastest rate. All of them gained at least 20% in sales. But when it comes to the declined brands, we can mark Buick, Cadillac, Smart, Mitsubishi, Dodge, and Volvo, each of which declined at least by 15% in February.
BMW became the best premium brand in terms of sales in Canada, leaving Mercedes-Benz slightly behind. Other premium brands that have experienced growth during the previous month are Lexus, Porsche, Acura, and Lincoln.

Both January and February are not the best months when it comes to the amount of auto sales in Canada. We could observe severe weather events in Canada during the previous months. For this reason, auto sales can really grow in March and April. It can happen if the demand for new cars among Canadian citizens has not been fully satisfied during January and February.
