GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The BMW 6-Series is listed here as it now features a “mainstream” sedan bodystyle in addition to its two-door variants, just like the larger S-Class. 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, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but HybridCars.com estimates 1200 April Tesla Model S sales, 7200 YTD.
