Suzuki Canada Inc. (SCI) will to stop selling automobiles in Canada after the 2014 model year.

Suzuki says it plans to focus on motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle sales as well as its marine division.

Although Suzuki Canada will exit the auto sales business, the company says it isn’t entering a court-supervised restructuring in this country.

The auto division sold about 5,500 units in Canada last year.

According to a Suzuki Canada statement, Suzuki Motor Corp. of Japan has been reviewing the long-term viability of automotive production for Canada since the U.S. decision in November and “concluded that it was no longer feasible for it to produce automobiles for distribution and sale in the Canadian market.”

Meanwhile, “SCI remains firmly committed to its motorcycle, ATV & marine division, which is competitively positioned in Canada, and will become the focus of SCI’s operations once the realignment is complete,” the statement added.
