Apart from working in auto parts factories for a couple of summers, I have little knowledge or interest in the Canadian automotive industry. But, I found Dennis DesRosiers’ collection of articles on this topic not only informative but also quite fascinating at times. Read the rest of this entry »

Well it’s been a year now since GM and Chrysler emerged from bankrupcy with a billion of taxpayer dollars in their pockets. I looked at a long list of issues in the industry lately ( I’m on vacation as a write this … call me anal ) and the results with one exception were impressive … lets see now Read the rest of this entry »

Dennis Desrosiers – January 11, 2010

Attached are new car dealer counts by brand for the decade. I break out dealer counts by the dealers that are selling primarily luxury brand vehicles from those that are what I call full line dealers. There are a couple of issue with this data though. First, Lincoln and Cadillac dealer counts are not available separate from their parent company totals so I can’t include them in the luxury dealer table. Second, I have no where to put Mini and smart dealers so I include them in the full line table of dealers even though they are very narrow in their product scope. Read the rest of this entry »

The Decade of Cars in Review

Attached are sales per dealer for the decade. I sent a note out about these a few days ago but there was a technical error that I wanted to correct. We were never able to get the number of smart car dealers which operate out of Mercedes Benz stores so we always included smart sales as part of the Mercedes-Benz sales per dealers numbers. Mercedes-Benz has now provided me with accurate smart dealer counts so we are able to provide a cleaner analysis with MB broken out separate from smart. We always did break out BMW and Mini so the previous analysis did warp the analysis slightly. Read the rest of this entry »

Dennis Desrosiers – January 7, 2010

Attached are light vehicle sales for 2000 to 2009 by brand of vehicle sold.

The decade witnessed the start of start up in Canada of three new vehicle brands, first was Mitsubishi in 2002, the second was Maybach in 2003 and the last was smart in 2004. You could technically include KIA in this list. KIA started in 1999 but their first full year was the year 2000. There also was the loss of one brand. Daewoo left Canada as a stand alone in 2002 although GM absorbed all their models immediately and sold them through the GM dealer network. Read the rest of this entry »

Dennis Desrosiers Thoughts for the Day

By Dennis Desrosiers

Attached are sales for 2000 to 2009 for passenger cars versus light trucks and for the D-3 nameplates versus the import nameplates although I don’t know why we analysts break out the D-3 from the import nameplates anymore. The three of them are radically different especially after the last 12 months of crisis. Each also are very different from a structural point of view and position and performance in the market. But none the less this is still how the industry looks at things so I’ll also do it this way. I will promise to send you though an analysis by brand in the next day or two that doesn’t have this problem so bear with me. Read the rest of this entry »
