Canadian demand for the “car,” as we once knew it, is drying up. Although big announcements by companies such as Ford Motor Company are bringing the story into the mainstream, this is not a sudden development. Passenger cars haven’t accounted for the majority of Canadian new vehicle sales since 2009, not more than 40 percent since 2014, and in early 2018 form just 29 percent of the market.

Through the first four months of 2018, car sales are down 10 percent in an overall auto market that’s growing, albeit marginally, toward another record year. Yet there are cars that are selling more often in 2018 than they did in 2017. In fact, some are selling way more often.

To gauge the fastest-growing, we looked only at vehicles that attract an average of at least 100 buyers per month.
