Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America - May 2015 YTD

2015 Volvo XC60 brown
May 2015 was the first full month of sales for Land Rover USA's new Discovery Sport. A replacement for the LR2 (formerly the Freelander) and not the LR4 (which is known as a Discovery in other parts of the world), the Discovery Sport is a 5+2 in a class full of five seaters.

440 copies of the Discovery Sport were sold in May. Land Rover USA has only sold more than 400 LR2s twice in the last five years.

If the Discovery Sport is to become the top-selling Land Rover in America, it'll need to routinely sell around 1500 units per month. But if it's to play among the big boys in its category, Land Rover will need to sell 4000 Discovery Sports per month. 

That's unlikely, but at 2000-2500 sales per month, the Discovery Sport will be an upper mid-level player in the small luxury SUV/crossover category, just ahead of former Ford PAG stablemates from Volvo (XC60) and Lincoln (MKC).

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown
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. This explains you'll see the XC70 listed with luxury cars as well as with SUVs and crossovers and the Touareg with luxury SUVs and mainstream SUVs... 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.
