Large Luxury Car Sales In Canada - October 2015 YTD

2016 BMW 7-Series
Mercedes-Benz Canada reported a modest 2% year-over-year S-Class sales increase in October 2015 even as Canada's overall car market tumbled 10% and the S-Class's own category slid 1%.

But it wasn't so much the S-Class's ability to expand its sales – by just two units, after all – that impressed in October. Rather, Mercedes-Benz sold 106 copies of their flagship car, nearly triple the total achieved by its chief rival, the BMW 7-Series.

In fact, the S-Class outsold the 7-Series, Jaguar XJ, Audi A8, and Lexus LS combined in October 2015. 

Not since June of last year has the Lexus flagship generated more than 20 sales. In each of the last three months, Toyota Canada sold the LS in single-digit numbers.

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 9, 18, 10, and 7, respectively, in the first ten months of 2015. Tesla sold 1314 cars in the first nine 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.
