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 February 2014 were 70, 164, 59, 23, and 86, respectively. Bentley sales rose 6% to 191; Maserati sales jumped 426% to 837. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but you can visit the Model S sales page here.
