Canada Autos Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Low interest rates and falling fuel prices will see the light truck segment once again outperform in Canada's light vehicle segment in 2015. Despite the negative impact of lower oil prices on the country's oil and gas sector, an uptick in the construction industry, new model launches, and increased disposable income from lower fuel prices will sustain momentum in the light truck segment. As such we have revised our growth forecast for the segment up from 3.7% to 5.0%.

Conversely, we believe the passenger car segment will contract further as more fuel-efficient models become less of a priority for consumers. Although it is early to read too much into just one month's sales, data for January show a 4.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) contraction in passenger car sales, compared with an 8.2% y-o-y increase in light truck sales.
