More evidence of the small car mind set:

Tiny smart car a giant in market
'A Masterpiece'; Year-over-year sales growth best of any vehicle

But here's the curious thing about Daimler AG's Smart ForTwo model, introduced in Canada in 2004: Not only is it selling well, it has the highest year-over-year sales growth of any vehicle in the country. (up 46%) - source
Canada YTD sales through September '08 were 3152 units. In the US, 18156 units in the same period. Remember the US market is 10x the size.

Interesting anyway.
