Large Luxury Car Sales In America - March 2015 YTD

2014 BMW 7-Series
In comparison with the early launch period of the sixth-generation W222 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, sales in the first-quarter of 2015 are down 10%. But it's not just the S-Class's doing.

Moreover, it wasn't reasonable to expect the S-Class to continue to sell at the outrageous levels it achieved over the course of 2014's final ten months. And it's not: S-Class volume is down 6% this year, having fallen 10% in the most recent month of March.

But U.S. sales of the Audi A8, Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, and Porsche Panamera are falling, as well. And in the month of March, specifically, the BMW 7-Series was the sole standout thanks to a marginal 25-unit increase.

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 the first three months of 2015 were 309, 531, 189, 45, and 285, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but HybridCars.com estimates 2000 March Tesla sales, 4900 YTD.
