Ford remains top carmaker in Canada

Ford Motor Co. says it was the top-selling carmaker in Canada again in July, the second straight month it has stripped the title from perennial volume leader General Motors Co.

Ford said it sold 26,788 cars and trucks last month, a 47% increase over July 2008 and its ninth consecutive month of market share increases. Total sales for the automaker through the end of July are 2.3% higher than last year. The company said sales of its Fusion, Mustang and Escape among models were particularly strong.

Ford is offering a promotion to consumers whereby if a buyer test drives a Ford but ends up purchasing a competing product from a competitor, Ford will offer the consumer $100.

Other automakers also posted strong results last month. Volkswagen boosted sales 14.6% year-over-year. Hyundai saw a 37% sales increase.

Automakers report sales in Canada throughout the day Tuesday.
