Canadian New Motor Sales Up 6.3% in March

122,194 Units Sold in March

According to a Statistics Canada report sales of new motor vehicles rose 6.3% in March to 122,194 units. It was the largest monthly growth since January 2008. The increase is mainly due to higher sales of trucks.

Sales of new trucks (which includes minivans, sport-utility vehicles, light and heavy trucks, vans and buses) were up 11.0% to 60,577 units in March. This rise more than offset the decline in truck sales in February.
