Even during a month in which sales of September's second-best-selling car, the Jaguar XJ, climbed above 50 units for the first time since March 2014, the S-Class was the far more likely acquisition.
Segment-wide sales jumped 30% in September 2015, an increase of 72 units compared with September 2014. But through the first three-quarters of 2015, it's becoming steadily more clear that buyers of flagship luxury vehicles are more interested in SUVs than traditional cars like these.
September was an exceptional month, but that's not enough to change the readily apparent trend.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. 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, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not made available in Canada. Tesla doesn't release a monthly Model S sales report, either. ANDC estimates for Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce were 104, 162, 90, and 58, respectively, in the first nine months of 2015. Tesla sold 1289 cars in the first eight months of 2015. Total Maserati volume is reported, but not by specific models. GCBC shows the Cadillac XTS, Hyundai Equus, and Kia K900 with midsize luxury cars not because of their size, but because the price points are much more directly comparable.
