Canadian vehicle sales increase 2.1 % in February
On March 3, DesRosiers Automotive Consultants DAC estimated that February new light vehicle sales in Canada increased, continuing the positive showing seen in January.
In light of more manufacturers continuing the trend of quarterly reporting from their sales organizations, total February 2020 sales settled at an estimated 123,375 units, a 2.1% increase from February 2019 when 120,891 total units were sold.
As with the established trend, February 2020 passenger car sales struggled with an estimated 26,875 units sold for the month, falling 10.8% from February 2019’s sales of 30,124 units.
A roughly six thousand unit increase in light truck sales proved to be sufficient in overcoming the losses in passenger car sales, and pointed the market upwards overall.
An estimated 96,500 SUV and pickups were sold in February, rising 6.3% above the 90,767 unit figure recorded in the same month last year.
Passenger car sales accounted for 21.8% of total monthly sales while light trucks claimed 78.2%.
Scotiabank estimates that Canadian light vehicle seasonally adjusted annualized rate (SAAR) for February 2020 was approximately 1.98 million units.
Despite decent job and wage performance, Canadian consumption has remained soft. The emergence of COVID-19 will likely introduce further volatility and at least temporary dampening in auto sales in the coming months.
