The Audi A8 rose to a four-month high, climbing 19%, year-over-year. BMW’s new 7-Series jumped 52%, a gain of 11 units, to 32 units. BMW’s 6-Series, a less direct rival for the S-Class but priced alongside the traditional BMW 7-Series luxury limo, increased its March tally by 12 units to 50.
Even with the S-Class’s 11% uptick and a segment-wide improvement of 6%, Canadians are nevertheless far more likely to purchase or lease a full-size luxury SUV than a full-size luxury car.
Lexus sold 31 LS sedans in the first-quarter of 2015; 121 LX570 SUVs. The Jaguar XJ’s 74-unit tally in Q1 pales in comparison to its Range Rover cousin’s 298-unit figure. In a rough first-quarter as the GL becomes the GLS, Mercedes-Benz’s 224-unit S-Class total looks small compared with the 468-unit GL total.
Cadillac has already sold 534 Escalades and Escalade ESVs in Canada this year. That figure measures up quite nicely against the whole large luxury car category.
