As a group, commercial vans were responsible for just 1.3% of Canada’s overall new vehicle market in October 2012. Year-to-date, the same seven vans account for 1.8% of the 1.44 million new vehicles sold in Canada. 

The rough October had plenty to do with the segment’s two most popular models, both of which are Fords. E-Series sales slid 5.5%, or 26 units. The Transit Connect was down 23%, equal to 92 units. 

Here’s hoping that Ford begins listing the it’s-not-a-minivan-but-well-it-is-kind-of-a-minivan 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon separately from the Transit Connect when it goes on sale later next year. For now, a Transit Connect Wagon is a rare item indeed, and sales of any passenger version of any of these vans is included in these totals. The interior of the 2014 passenger van is pictured above.
