Large luxury car sales in the U.S. have not been strong in 2019. The segment has seen sales declines month after month. October was no different.
The segment was down about 700 units in the month of October when compared to this month last year. If you look at the YTD sales numbers, you’ll see that the segment is down by about 7,300 units so far this year.
Leading the pack by a long shot is the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. However, the S-Class is down by about 19 percent in the month of October and about 16 percent so far this year. It’s just one of the cars that has seen a serious decline in sales this year.
We expect slow large luxury car sales to continue throughout the rest of this year and into 2020.
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.
