Mercedes-Benz Canada posted a huge increase in the sales of its largest SUVs in September 2011. To achieve a market share of 52% in its segment, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class (and G-Wagen) needed to double the volume achieved in September 2010. Indeed, sales jumped 108% year-over-year. For a change, we actually have the split on GL-Class/G-Class sales, something not normally provided for Canadian publication. 229 GL-Class SUVs were sold in September along with six of the classic G-Wagens.
Cadillac sold 46 regular-wheelbase Escalades, 15 long-wheelbase Escalade ESVs, and 16 Avalanche-based Escalade EXT SUVish pickups. Lincoln Navigator sales jumped 78% (21 units) in September. Sales of the Infiniti QX56 were up 186% from 14 in September 2010 to 40 last month.
This was Mercedes-Benz’s month to shine, however. The GL-Class wasn’t just the segment winner. It was more popular than all the mainstream large SUVs featured in this chart.
