In Canada, new car and light truck sales climbed 13.1% during the first two months of 2012, compared to the identical period final year. Nonetheless, the provinces with the highest increases are Saskatchewan (21.four%), Alberta (twenty.5%) and Nova Scotia (19.6%).
On the other hand, all the other provinces scored a outcome below the national typical, and Prince Edward Island is the only a single that purchased fewer autos so far in 2012 than in 2011 (-2.eight%).
With eight.2 new car revenue per one,000 citizens, Alberta is ahead of – surprise – Newfoundland, whose population bought 6.9 new vehicles per 1,000 citizens. Saskatchewan completes the podium with 6.six.
