Sales for the midsize luxury car segment didn’t look strong for either the month of October or YTD. The segment is struggling to match last year’s sales numbers.
When you look at just the monthly sales stats, you’ll see that the segment is down by about 1,400 units when compared with October of last year. When you look at the YTD sales numbers, you’ll see that the segment is down about 3,500 units.
Leading the pack is the Lexus ES. The car has seen sales rise in the YTD column, but it struggled to match last year’s sales numbers in the month of October alone. The only other models that have seen sales rise so far this year are the Audi A6 and A7.
We expect the segment to continue to struggle as the rest of the year progresses. We also expect it to struggle well into 2020 unless something changes.
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.
