Chrysler Canadian sales top Ford for first time since 2005 not ever

Email   small font medium font large font


Chrysler overtook Ford in Canadian sales last year, but not for the first time in the modern history of the automobile industry, as was widely reported last week.

In fact, what was then known as DaimlerChrysler Canada outsold Ford previously in 2005, Dennis DesRosiers of DesRosiers Automotive Consultants noted in a clarification Wednesday.

``Sorry about that ... brain cramp,'' DesRosiers wrote in an e-mail accompanying detailed sales data for the year.

Figures compiled by the DesRosiers consultancy, which conducts authoritative tallies of vehicle industry results, showed Chrysler with Canadian sales of 232,686 last year, up 5.5 per cent from 2006 and 8,913 more than Ford of Canada, whose sales declined 2.2 per cent on the year.

In 2005, Chrysler sold 216,857 units, 4,871 more than Ford.
