New-vehicle sales in province slow in November

  • Print

New-vehicle buyers in Manitoba tapped on the brakes in November, new seasonally unadjusted Statistics Canada figures show.

The agency said today that sales of new cars and trucks fell by 14.1 per cent to 3,788 units from 4,409 in October.

However, November’s total was still a slight improvement from a year earlier, when only 3,708 new vehicles were sold.

November’s total pushed sales for the first 11 months of 2012 to 48,396 vehicles. That was an 8.3 per cent improvement from 2011, when 44,687 units were sold during the first 11 months of the year.

Nationally, sales of new cars and trucks were down 7.2 per cent from October to November — 128,849 versus 138,892 — but up 6.8 per cent year to date — 1.6 million versus 1.5 million.
