Canadian sales of flagship luxury cars took a nosedive in January 2015 as the segment-leading Mercedes-Benz S-Class slowed dramatically in comparison with January 2014, when it was still newly launched.
But it wasn’t just the S-Class’s fault. The BMW 7-Series, Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, and Porsche Panamera all declined, as well. BMW’s 7% 6-Series uptick equalled just two extra units, and Audi A8 sales were flat.
(The 6-Series is included in this post because of its price and its sedan emphasis. Mercedes-Benz CLS sales are not reported in Canada, and we therefore don’t bother including the Audi A7 in this space, leaving it with its A6 platform-sharing partner in the midsize luxury post.)
Regardless, it says something about the S-Class that even with a 51% year-over-year decline, it still sold more often than the A8, 7-Series, LS, and Panamera combined.
