2016 hosted the best January for the Lexus LS since 2010. Year-over-year, LS volume doubled in January 2016. But in Canada, the big Lexus remains a bit player in a segment controlled by the Europeans, particularly the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

S-Class sales slid 31% in January 2016 but the big Benz still managed to lead the category, finishing six sales ahead of the new BMW 7-Series. Sales of the 7er jumped 89%, a gain of 16 units.

Jaguar XJ volume more than tripled to 24 January sales. 

While in the United States the LS accounted for 1.9% of Lexus sales, even in an especially poor January, the LS generated only 1.3% of Lexus’s Canadian sales in an especially good month for the LS.

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 7, 19, 11, and 7, respectively, in January. Tesla sold 1780 cars in calendar year 2015. 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.
