Canada’s 5 best-selling vehicles for the first 6 months of 2018


Best selling vehicles in Canada

This June, there was a 2 per cent drop in total sales  and the first-half of 2018 ends as the second-strongest start to the year in Canadian history.

Canadians have bought and leased more than 2 million vehicles in 2018 for just the second time ever, but that’s with fewer total sales than last year.

More Canadians are acquiring new vehicles by getting into longer-term loans, having been attracted to car dealer showrooms with strong incentives but still the Canadian auto industry may not be as healthy as it appears on paper. 

Vehicle sales in the first 6 months of 2018

According to Global Automakers of Canada, 1.04 million new vehicles were sold between January and June. Surprisingly the most popular vehicles on which the industry depends for great swathes of volume, are suffering substantial demand decreases.

Honda and Toyota, for instance, sold nearly 5,000 fewer Corollas and Civics in the first-half of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017.

More up for electric trucks... Volvo Trucks are in!

Volvo Trucks are stepping in to the electric truck game. They have announced that starting next year, companies and individuals will be able to get a Volvo electric truck. Volvo Trucks will begin to sell these in Europe next year.
 “Electromobility is fully in line with Volvo Trucks’ long-term commitment to sustainable urban development and zero emissions,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “By using electrically powered and quieter trucks for goods transport in urban areas, we meet several challenges simultaneously. Without disturbing noise and exhaust gases, it will be possible to operate in more sensitive city centers. Transport may also take place throughout less busy periods, for example in late evening and at night. This will reduce the burden on the roads during daytime rush-hour traffic, allowing both the road network and vehicles to be utilized far more effectively than today.

Urban distribution and other pick-up and delivery applications are a sta…

Stopping or slowing down in the highway. Always know when it is getting too much for you, if you are tired driving though a snowfall, STOP. Stop in a safe dedicated place on the road or a truck stop and get some rest, or wait for the weather conditions to improve. If you can go on, slow down. Speed limits are often too fast for snow icy or snow co…

Driving through the Coquihalla? You are thinking about it…

Driving through the Coquihalla? You are thinking about it… 
You may have lots of driving experience, but not much on highway driving experience. Most of us drive within the city, but fly or catch the bus when we have to go to a different province or city. Nothing wrong with that! What happens when you have to relocate and you need to take your vehicle with you? There are a couple options. You will need to ship your vehicle or drive it to your new destination.
In Canada, there are a few highways that many people try to avoid. One of them is the Coquihalla in British Columbia.
High mountain passes are roads built on high mountains. But that is not all there is, these mountains are more than just mounds of rock. They are living, breathing environments, and for this they are subject to a diverse range of weather situations and events that can change without notice. 
A sunny day can turn into a snow storm in just moments. As we know, the higher the elevation the cooler the weather and wind…
