Our Take On The Top 20 Best-Selling Luxury Vehicle Sales Numbers

Topping the chart of luxury vehicle sales in America for July 2018 is the Tesla Model 3, following Tesla’s efforts to catch up on its delivery schedule.

July once again saw the Audi Q5 lead the German brand’s sales and growth, with the SUV selling 58.2% more this July than last. Its main rival, the BMW X3, sold over 2000 units fewer than the Audi, but in terms of growth the BMW impressively outpaced it – its sales soared 61.3% for the month.

The Q5 is just one of many models in the luxury segment that could be hit should tariffs be applied to vehicle imports. Resultant price rises may drive buyers away from new versions of the Mexico-assembled Q5 and into nearly-new vehicles that many analysts predict will flood the market in the second half of 2018.
