I wouldn't say that they're over produced or collecting dust. The dealer I delt with had a variety in stock but those numbers are still a small percentage of the other models I saw there. A healthy, normal number of allocations vs. the "malnourished" dealerships south of the border. The U.S. market is just so much larger.

I think the Yaris is just starting to gain momentum in Canada. When I was at the dealership doing test drives the Yaris was getting some attention, but not nearly as much as the Corolla. And I saw more people (families) looking at the sedan not the LB.

I know this was posted before, but in case you missed it:

RECORD PERFORMANCE FROM BOTH TOYOTA AND LEXUS BRANDS

TORONTO, May 2 /CNW/ - Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) is pleased to announce
today that April was the most successful sales month in the company's history
with total sales of 21,212 units, surpassing the previous all-time sales
record of 20,910 units set in May 2003. In addition, record year-to date-
(YTD) sales of 57,628 units are up 11.2 per cent over the same period in 2005.

Best month ever for the Toyota division, as sales of 20,168 units beat
last April by 13.6 per cent. Record YTD Toyota sales of 54,395 units are up by
11.0 per cent.
- Best month ever for Toyota cars - sales of 15,297 units up
8.6 per cent over April, 2005.
- Best April for Toyota trucks - sales of 4,871 units beat last April by
33.0 per cent.

- Best April for Lexus trucks, as 474 units are up by 8.0 per cent.

"Toyota's new model introductions such as Camry, Yaris, RAV4, and FJ
Cruiser have resulted in an overwhelming consumer response," said Tony
Wearing, Managing Director of TCI. "In addition to new model sales success,
our core models such as Matrix, Corolla, and Tacoma pickups continue to
maintain and deliver outstanding sales performances."
"The IS performance sedan's blistering sales pace has set the stage for
an unbeatable combination in May when Lexus launches the all-new 2007 ES 350,"
said Stuart Payne, Director of Lexus in Canada. "As well as the ES 350, we are
eagerly awaiting the launch of the new GS 450h, which will also appear in
dealerships this month."

Vehicle highlights for April include:
- Outstanding start for the all-new 2007 Camry, 2,971 units up
37.7 per cent for the month.
- Record month for Yaris; at 4,046 units, the Yaris and Yaris Hatchback
outsold last April's sales of the popular Echo lineup by
13.5 per cent.

- New monthly record for RAV4 - 1,523 units surpasses last month's
record of 1,490 units.
- FJ Cruiser continues to remain in high demand selling 559 units.
- Best April for the Canadian-made Matrix, with 2,741 units up by
8.2 per cent.
- Record YTD Prius sales up 45.4 per cent versus last year.
- Great performance for Tacoma trucks, with 866 units up by
58.9 per cent in April.
- Best April ever for Lexus IS performance sedan, selling 315 units
versus 36 units sold in April 2005.

There are about 5 yaris liftbacks sitting on the lot in Regina here...have been for at least a couple weeks...2 blacks, a blazing blue, grey-blue, and a white. Mix of auto and manual. I have only seen 3 other Yaris hatches around, none of them 3-door, and 2 Yaris sedans, but one was a rental.

I dunno why they're so sparse here, so far...most people on the prairies buy trucks, I guess.

THERE ARE A TON OF SUZUKI SWIFTS ALL OVER THE SHOW THOUGH. They're ugly as heck.

I think it will be a year or two until there's significant momentum behind the Yaris brand/model. Right now there's just no mindshare. Everyone knows Civic & Corolla. Fit & Yaris are obscure in comparison. Advertising is helping to push these new brands out there to some extent at least. I think the Yaris is distinctive looking enough to help increase its mindshare once enough of them start appearing on the streets.

They are sold before they even reach the show room floor in Albuquerque. There was one left (that i test drove) in NM. I talked to the dealer the other day and there was only 1 yaris in stock in the surrounding 7 states.
