Lexus sales increased a little more than 31% in May 2010 over May 2009’s total, easily enough forward movement to stay ahead of Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Cadillac was the luxury brand with the greatest percentage increase over May 2009, adding 4355 sales, a 54.3% jump. Jaguar, which just started selling the 2011 XJ at the very end of the month, posted a decline in sales measuring 17.6%. Among luxury auto brands, only the barely-breathing Saab suffered a greater percentage decrease in U.S. sales in May. Volvo, Lincoln, Porsche, and BMW all sold fewer vehicles this May than in the same period of last year.
