US – Large Luxury Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The large luxury car segment didn’t see sales rise overall for the month of August. YTD numbers also don’t look fantastic.

Leading the pack in terms of sales volume was the Tesla Model S. Despite this, the car was down a whopping 58 percent when compared to last year. This is likely due to the fact that buyers interested in the electric car are turning to the smaller Model 3.

There was an even split of models that saw sales increase and models that saw sales decrease in the month of August. When you look YTD, you’ll see that the segment saw even fewer models that saw sales increases.

The segment as a whole isn’t doing very well, and we expect that to continue in the coming months.

Below you will find sales figures for all large luxury cars sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report August 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
