Ford Canada said today its sales rose 10 percent 25,596 vehicles in September -- the unit's second-best September ever.
Car sales led Ford's gain, the company said, led by the new Ford Fiesta, up 64 percent; the Fusion, up 20 percent; and Mustang up 10 percent.
Truck sales still accounted for about 80 percent of Ford's sales in Canada, rising 8.8 percent to 20,237 vehicles during the month.
Ford Canada CEO Dianne Craig said: "Heading into the final quarter of this year, Canadian new vehicle sales are on a record-breaking pace and we are grateful to be leading such a strong industry."
Chrysler Group's Canadian arm extended its year-over-year sales growth streak in September, selling the most cars for that month in 13 years, the company said today.
The automaker sold 19,858 vehicles last month, 1.5 percent more than in the same period last year. Year to date, total sales were up 6.5 percent.
Car sales edged up 0.4 percent to 3,616, while truck sales rose 1.8 percent to 16,242. Several Chrysler models posted sales declines, but an increase in Dodge car and Chrysler truck models helped offset the drops.
General Motors said its September sales fell 2.6 percent to 18,270 vehicles.
Meanwhile, Toyota Canada reported record sales for its cars, trucks and Lexus luxury unit, bolstered in part by new models of the Canadian-built Corolla and RAV4. September sales gained 2.6 percent to 17,268 cars and trucks sold.
Sales for Honda's Canadian arm advanced 8 percent from a year ago to 13,964 as sales of its Fit and Accord models doubled from a year ago. Total sales are up 11.2 percent so far this year to 121,890 units sold.
