2017 Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard

Mercedes-Benz S-Class sales jumped by one-third to 120 units in March 2017, an 18-month high for Canada’s historically favoured full-size luxury flagship. 

The S-Class outsold the BMW 7-Series, Jaguar XJ, and Audi A8 combined in March 2017, easily outperforming its classmates.

Porsche Panamera volume jumped 25% as Porsche finally began selling the second-generation Panamera, an indirect rival for full-size seans such as the S-Class. March was also a much-improved month for the Maserati Quattroporte. 

And the aforementioned 7-Series, Canada’s second-ranked full-size luxury sedan, nearly doubled its March volume in the third month of 2017.

Collectively, this group of cars is up 13% so far this year. Tesla, which doesn’t report monthly, model-specific Canadian sales info, sold 228 copies of the Model S in the first two months of 2017.

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 Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce were 60, 54, and 24 units , respectively, in 2017 Q1. Tesla sold 228 Model Ss in the first two months of 2017. GCBC shows the Cadillac XTS and CT6, Hyundai Equus, Lincoln Continental and Kia K900 with midsize luxury cars not because of their size, but because the price points are much more directly comparable.
