Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - January 2016


Tops among premium brand autos in January, regardless of price point, was the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class. (In sales reports, the reference is still to the M-Class, which was renamed for model year 2016 when the "coupe" bodystyle was added. It's a similar story for the GLK and its GLC successor.) 

Sales of Mercedes-Benz SUVs and crossovers jumped 52% to 1532 units in January, a greater SUV/crossover sales total than the overall total achieved by every other premium brand save for BMW.

^ Mercedes-Benz Canada's figures combine the E-Class with the CLS and the S-Class with the CL.
$50,000 CDN (before delivery) is an arbitrary borderline, but if GCBC was to follow this new system of designating only expensive vehicles as luxury vehicles, $50K seemed like a safe place to begin - it equals the approximate average U.S. new car transaction price plus $15,000, plus another $5000 to account for Canadian increases. Plenty of less expensive vehicles with specific models feature prices above $50,000 - M, RS, and AMG models come to mind, specifically - but in the case of this list, we know that none of the registrations were of cars priced below $50,000.
