BC New vehicle sales jump 3.3 %

Following the -3.6% drop in sales seen in May, BC new vehicle sales fared better in June with a rise of 3.3%over 2012. Overall, year to date BC sales have increased 2.7% in comparison to last year. While lagging behind the Prairies, where Manitoba witnessed a 22.2% increase in sales, BC is above the national average increase of 1.3%. Influencing this number is Alberta’s widespread flooding that occurred in June; however, DesRosiers states that Canada’s total June sales “stand as an impressive achievement given the number of selling days lost” due to the disaster.
