Large Luxury Car Sales In Canada - November 2015 YTD

2013 Lexus LS460
Year-over-year, Canadian sales of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class tumbled 28% in November 2015, a loss of 41 units compared with November 2014. That's more lost sales than most of the total monthly sales achieved by most of the S-Class's direct rivals.

Yet even with that sharp 28% drop, the S-Class easily outsold the next two best-selling cars in the class. In a segment that's lost sales during 2015's first 11 months, Canadian sales of the S-Class have grown 5% to 1056 units so far this year. Unless December volume plunges far further than November's total, 2015 sales of the S-Class will climb to an eight-year high.

BMW, the closest challenger to the S-Class's throne, after posting a 16% 7-Series sales loss in 2015's first ten months, posted a 52% increase in November. The new 7-Series is a technological tour de force, but that may not be nearly enough to unseat the S-Class, which has defined the class for decades. 

Meanwhile, we profiled the Lexus LS last week on AutoFocus.ca's list of the 25 most ignored new vehicles in Canada.

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 12, 18, 11, and 7, respectively, in the first eleven months of 2015. Tesla sold 1452 cars in the first ten 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.
