Canadian auto sales are expected to come in just shy of a new record in 2012 after another strong month of sales across the country in November.
Ford Motor Co. of Canada, Ltd. remained the top seller in Canada for the month Ė and for the year to date Ė with sales up 7.4% year-over-year. The company said that was driven by a 14% jump in car sales during the month and a 6% rise in truck sales.
General Motors of Canada Ltd. held the number two sales spot in the country during the month, despite a 3.2% decline in sales year over year in November.
Chrysler Canada, however, held the number two sales spot year-to-date after its own November sales improved 4.7% year-over-year.
Ford currently holds a 16.5% market share in Canada year-to-date. Chrysler holds a 14.5% market share, and GM is at 13.5% with one more month of sales to go in the year.
