Canada produced 2.4 MILLION cars last year, so why have we never heard of a purely Canadian Car Manufacturer? The thing is, there used to be Canadian car companies, but not anymore. What happened? And why doesn't Canada have a badge to call their own?

The biggest successes for Canadian car production were faux pas karma by the big brains in Detroit. When Canadian plants were tasked with building "small cars almost nobody in the US wants", the oil crisis struck and Canadian production went through the roof. When the next cycle arrived, Canadian big 3 factories were tasked this time with building "big cars nobody wants" but then oil prices collapsed and big car sales soared again. lol

The telephone is only dubiously a Canadian invention. The claim is vigorously disputed by Americans (if they've heard of it, which is unlikely), with good reason. Much of the device's development did in fact occur in Canada but much did not, it was patented by Bell while he was living in the US, and he didn't even manage to make it work until ten days after that. ("Mr. Watson," etc.) You can be forgiven for believing what your schoolteachers told you.

But at the end of the day, we don’t have mainstream automakers that is Canadian brand and own, and mass produce the vehicles to make $$$. Yeah, we have smaller companies to make a few 100 cars a year if that, but the quality is not comparable to some of the Italian or German coach builders.

Luckily, 10 out of the 13 Canadian provinces/territories have no front licence plate requirement law. Only Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia still have a front licence plate requirement law because public safety reasons. Compared to the USA, 30 out of the 50 American states and Washington DC still have a front license plate requirement law. Only 20 other US states (including Ohio) have no front license plate requirement law.

I owned a 1965 Canso Acadian Sport Deluxe from 82 until 94 , came with a factory 283 and two speed auto , I changed that out for a 327 and three speed auto with a shift kit , 4 bbl , headers and multi leaf rear springs on the rear and cutdown Camaro coil springs on the front end. It would chirp rubber on the up shift from low to second her at 60 mph , I had it up to 120 mph but the whole car started to float at anything over 100 mph . The steering was a terrible ball recirculating system that had a ton of play in it. Still have pictures of it, wish I never sold it but life goes on. BTW I live in Western Canada of course .

Most of the auto industry which is based in Ontario has largely American companies with some newer Japanese companies starting to manufacture in Ontario. I believe after the auto pack was signed it was the American companies that largely became dominant at least in Ontario. With the free trade pack it became possible for Japanese companies to enter the Canadian market place.

The constant need to sell off Canadian companies to the US is the reason. Always ends poorly.

There are brands of car/motorcycle/vehicles in Canada, just not very known/unpopular to Americans. Campagna (Creators of the T-Rex three-wheeler that kicks major-ass, shown in the video.) Bombardier (multi-vehicle company, from atvs, snowmobiles up to airplanes, business is now international) Felino Corp (started by Antoine Bessette, creator of the Felino CB7, a Quebec-made incredible looking supercar. Also shown in the video.) Electra Meccanica (creator of the three-wheeled SOLO electric car, which production began in august this year) These are still alive and kicking today. There used to be many more, but like the video says, they are defunct and dead. Some of these are: Acadian (General Motors) Allard Motor Works American Motors Canada Automobiles Manic (maker of Manic GT) Bricklin Brockville Atlas Brooks Steam Motors Derby (Canadian automobile) Dupont Industries Dynasty EV( was a Canadian electric car produced by Dynasty Electric Car Corporation ) Galt Gas-Electric Gray-Dort Motors HTT Automobile Kennedy Motors Laurentian (Pontiac) McKay Motor Car Company McLaughlin Automobile Meteor (Ford) Orion International Redpath Motor Vehicle Company Russell Motor Car Company Studebaker Canada Suzuki Canada Inc. Red-Golski Motors (Windsor) Tudhope Carriage Company and ZENN Motor Company.

The Canadian government just invested in two new Canadian electric car Companies. The Saturn was totally engineered and designed in Canada. While they also had an electric version which smoked the porch targa with performance . I watched the demonstration on TV and with a Porch targa and Nissan 300 ZX. They both looked as though they were not even trying as the Saturn easily pulled away . I believe the year was 1996. It was also known as the GM EVI.

I think the only remaining car brand sold globally that's based in a "small" nation is Volvo (excluding niche supercar builders). All the others are from more populous nations than Canada. I guess you could argue that South Korea is about the equivalent of Canada in at least economic size, but they found their success by racing to the bottom in prices. That'd be a difficult strategy for Canada to duplicate. Canada needed the equivalent of Tesla for a chance to break back into the industry, and ironically enough Elon Musk is half-Canadian, but he decided he wanted to be American. Also, batteries really don't like cold temperatures.

Technically Ford is the Canadian car company that was forced to form in the US do to a labor demand need.

Then add in the Windsor, Ontario engine plant to the equation as it becomes even more apparent.

Canada population is about the population of california 37m. Any Canadian car company will really be viable by selling cars to that small population. Who already have plenty of choices from foreign owned vehicle brands. A Canadian car company to be profitable would need to sell cars abroad to Europe, USA and Asian which are all competitive, saturated markets
