In January 2014, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sold more than twice as often as its nearest rival, the Lexus LS. In other words, the S-Class outsold its two nearest rivals combined

For every Audi A8 sold in the United States in January 2014, Mercedes-Benz USA sold 3.8 S-Class sedans. 

In a vehicle category that collected 8% fewer sales than the same vehicles did one year earlier, the S-Class generated a 37% year-over-year sales increase. It helps to be new. It also helps to be the S-Class.


So severe was the Lexus LS's decline that it ended up on GCBC's list of America's 20 worst-selling vehicles in America in January 2014.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the the A7 and CLS here but also with midsize luxury cars... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in January 2014 were 70, 164, 47, 23, and 86, respectively. Bentley sales rose 2% to 192 units in January; Maserati sales jumped 230% to 567. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data.
