US – Small Luxury Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The small luxury car segment is one of the few in the industry that didn’t have a good month in August. The segment was down roughly 3,500 units for the month.

When you look YTD, you’ll see that the segment has had a pretty rough year so far. There have been roughly 37,000 fewer sales of small luxury cars so far this year when compared with last year.

The segment leader was the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and it was down roughly 19 percent for the month of August when compared to August’s sales last year.

Seeing as how this segment has only really seen sales fall this year, we fully expect that to continue in the coming months and for the rest of the year.

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

We will report July 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Thursday, August 1st, 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.
