The Panamera is a bit player in Canada, as are all its potential rivals. But in August, the Panamera came within a single sale of catching the all-conquering Mercedes-Benz S-Class. 

Both cars enjoyed massive year-over-year improvements: 67% and 92%, respectively, for the Panamera and S-Class. Had BMW 7-Series remained level, it would have been the top seller in the segment. But the 29% decline reduced the 7er’s total to 37 units, eight ahead of the Jaguar XJ, but nine behind the S-Class.

Year-to-date, the S-class is selling at a 2.8-to-1 pace compared with the 7-Series, its most natural rival.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Sales data for brands such as Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not made available in Canada. Tesla doesn’t release a monthly Model S sales report, either. estimates for Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce were 15, 17, 5, and 6, respectively, in August 2014. Tesla sold 442 cars in the first seven months of 2014. Total Maserati volume is reported, but not by specific models. GCBC shows the Cadillac XTS, Hyundai Equus, and Kia K900 with midsize luxury cars not because of their size, but because the price points are much more directly comparable.
