Winter doesn't slow car sales Add to ...

Vehicle sales rose 2.4 per cent last month in Canada despite severe weather in parts of the country and the distraction of the Winter Olympics.

Sales rose for Honda Canada Inc., Nissan Canada Inc. and Toyota Canada Inc., among the major auto makers. Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd. said sales fell a fraction. Canadians bought 105,693 new vehicles last month. That’s higher than the five-year February average of 98,828 sales, said the Global Automakers of Canada, which represents Asia and Europe-based manufacturers. Sales for those manufacturers rose 3.5 per cent, said association president David Adams.
