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 13, 54, 42, and 21, respectively, in the first-quarter of 2016. Tesla sold 135 cars in the first two months of 2016. 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.
