45 copies of the sixth-generation 7-Series were sold in Canada in May. Mercedes-Benz, however, sold twice that many S-Classes in a particularly poor month for the big Benz.

The sector controlled by these two stalwarts took a collective 26% tumble in May 2016. Some of the blame for that decline can be placed upon the quirky auto sales calendar: “May 2016” didn’t begin until May 3, 2016, shortening the auto sales calendar by two days.

For the most part, however, we simply saw lower numbers. Lower numbers from the Audi A8. Lower numbers from the BMW 6-Series. Lower numbers from the Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, and of course, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which generated 143 sales in May 2015.

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 Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, 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 33, 90, 70, and 35 units respectively, in the first five months of 2016. Tesla sold 570 cars in the first four months of 2016. Total Maserati volume is reported, but not by specific models. GCBC shows the Cadillac XTS, Cadillac CT6, Hyundai Equus, and Kia K900 with midsize luxury cars not because of their size, but because the price points are much more directly comparable.
