Minivan sales in Canada looked far better than they did in the U.S. However, sales were still down for both the month of September and YTD.
The Toyota Sienna, Kia Sedona, and Chrysler Pacifica all saw sales rise for the month of September. The segment was still down about 900 units.
When you look at the YTD numbers you’ll see that things look far worse. Only the Sienna has seen sales increase so far this year. The segment as a whole is down about 8,000 units.
September seems to be an oddball month for the segment. We’d expect it to see sale drop down again in the coming months.
Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.
Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
