E-Class Mercedes sales dropped 9% in September 2011 but it remained way out in front of the BMW 5-Series and all other rivals. Mercedes-Benz sold 47,824 E-Class sedans, coupes, convertibles, and wagons in America in the first nine months of 2011. That’s up 7% compared with the first nine months of 2010. BMW 5-Series sales are up 55% this year but ended September nearly 10,000 sales behind the E-Class.
In other direct battles, the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class’s 399% year-over-year increase propelled it to 709 September sales. Audi sold 693 A7s. Volvo sold 524 S80s in the battle of the bland; Acura sold only 43 RLs. Acura RL sales plunged 82%; certainly more than enough to land it on America’s Worst-Selling Cars list. Saab had an abysmal month but sales of the 9-5 did jump 165%.
Keep in mind, the powerful blue line representing the Hyundai Genesis includes sales of the Genesis Coupe. You can check out larger rivals of the Hyundai Equus here.
