Large Luxury Car Sales In America - May 2014 YTD

2014 Audi A8 silver
For the most part, ever since October of last year, and the arrival of a new car, the story has repeated itself over and over and over. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class easily outsells its rivals.

And not by a small margin. In May 2014, the S-Class outsold the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series, Jaguar XJ, and Lexus LS combined, with an extra 105 units to spare. 

In May 2013, combined sales of the A8, 7-Series, XJ, and LS totalled 3127 units. Mercedes-Benz sold 1190 S-Class sedans. 

The former quartet fell 1059 units, or 34%, to 2068 sales in May 2014. The S-Class stole 983 of those sales, rising 83% to 2173 units.

13% of the Mercedes-Benz brand's passenger car volume in May was generated by the S-Class, up from 7% a year ago. Only a little more than 3% of BMW USA's car volume was 7-Series-derived in May 2014.

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 May 2014 were 102, 175, 59, 14, and 75, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but HybridCars.com estimates 1400 May Tesla sales, 6800 YTD.
