For a nation that appears at its southern neighbor’s gasoline costs with lust and envy, you’d think small automobiles would make up a larger share of the vehicle combine. Nicely, they don’t. Canadians like their crossovers, pickups, and SUVs much more than People, and Ford’s future product lineup exhibits it.
It looks like simply yesterday you would stroll into a Ford supplier and take a look at a stingy and unsafe Aspire, earlier than the hungry salesman upsold you on an Escort (or maybe its sporty ZX2 sibling). Then there was the Contour, Taurus, and Crown Victoria to think about.
These days are gone, and beneath Ford’s new truck-centric product plan, which ditches the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, and Taurus, Canada gained’t even get the crossover-ized Focus Active hatch. It’s a Mustang or nothing for small car lovers.
Apparently, we’ve made our mattress and now have to lie in it.
Information of this modification comes by means of Autofocus, which quotes Ford Canada communications supervisor Christine Hollander as saying Canadians simply don’t purchase sufficient automobiles to warrant the mannequin’s introduction.
“The car phase in Canada has been declining steadily since 2012 and now makes up simply 33 % of the general market,” Hollander stated. “Going within the different path, SUV and crossover gross sales have been rising steadily since 2012 and now account for about forty four % of all vehicle gross sales in Canada. And that development of car gross sales declining as extra shoppers select SUVs is predicted to proceed. So, we’re focusing our efforts on automobiles clients want.”
It’s your fault, Greg in Moncton, and yours too, Crystal in Trois-Rivières. The one passenger car to crack the highest 10 in month-to-month gross sales quantity in Canada is the Honda Civic, positioned far under the best-promoting Ford F-one hundred fifty. The best-promoting Ford car final month was the Focus — in thirty ninth place, based on GoodCarBadCar.
Canadians apparently choose compact choices from Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Honda, Kia, Subaru, Chevrolet, and Volkswagen earlier than they flip to the Blue Oval for a small car. As for the Fusion, which disappears south of the border, too, the BMW three Collection is extra widespread within the Nice White North. Hell, the Canadian-market Nissan Micra moved extra metallic final month. It’s a grim nation for automobiles.
My neighbor already owns an EcoSport.
