New Motor Vehicle Sales by Province - August 2012
Attached are the latest figures for provincial automotive sales in Canada from Statistics Canada. The data can be found in an Excel spreadsheet, which goes back to 2000, and two PowerPoint documents, which show trending for the past 12 months.
*Effective March 2012, only unadjusted data on new motor vehicle sales are available. Seasonally adjusted data is available up to February 2012.
Passenger cars include those used for personal and commercial purposes, such as taxis or rental cars. Trucks include minivans, sport-utility vehicles, light and heavy trucks, vans and buses.
North American-built new motor vehicles include vehicles manufactured or assembled in Canada, the United States or Mexico. All other new motor vehicles are considered to have been manufactured overseas.
For reasons of confidentiality, data for Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut are included with those for British Columbia.
The New Motor Vehicle Sales Survey is compiled on the basis of figures obtained from motor vehicle manufacturers and importers. These results may vary from those obtained directly from auto dealers, due to possible differences in record keeping.
