Civic passes Ford F-150 in 2008 annual sales in Canada

You may have seen Ben's blog post in May about how the F-150 fell to 5th place behind the Civic, Corolla, Camry & Accord in that month's US sales.

In Canada, that trend stretched to total sales for the entire year.

The Civic has been the country's best-selling car for more than a couple of years, but the F-150 has typically beat it in annual units.



Apparently trucks have been on top for some time, but the Civic's sales have upended a dynasty of sorts:

It marks the first time in 15 years that a car has topped a truck as the country's best selling vehicle. In 1993, the Chevrolet Cavalier came out on top if one doesn't count the combined sales of the Chevrolet and GMC C/K pickup trucks.
