At the start of the new year, the chronicler of Car guide Antoine Joubert took advantage of his first visit in 2021 to the program Salut Bonjour to take stock of 2020.
What a crazy year, when you think about it! Everything started off well with us, with an edition of the Montreal Auto Show that went as usual. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things.
The forced closings of dealerships in the spring obviously caused a major drop in sales in the country. That said, many dealers still had a fairly acceptable year from a financial point of view, as they were able to save on inventory management fees.
Antoine Joubert also discussed the many models that have been discontinued and are not returning in 2021. These include the Toyota Yaris, the Honda Fit and the Hyundai Accent.
To end this capsule, Antoine mentioned his favorites from the last few months in the automotive industry!
