As Canadian new vehicle sales increased 5.4% in May 2013, sales of the Acura RDX, Audi Q5, BMW X3, Infiniti EX, Land Rover LR2, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and Mercedes-Benz GLK grew at an above-average clip. So did sales of the Cadillac SRX, Infiniti EX, Infiniti JX, both the Lexus GX and RX, Porsche Cayenne, and Volvo XC90.
The bigger Infiniti QX56, Range Rover, and Mercedes’ G-Class and GL-Class SUVs did the same.
BMW X1 sales, however, continue to fall. The X1 hasn’t posted a year-over-year increase since last July. The XC60, like every Volvo except the C70 and XC90, reported a volume decrease, the XC60’s fifth drop in six months. Big drops from Lincoln’s three utility vehicles contributed to the Lincoln brand’s overall 35% May 2013 sales decline.
In eight consecutive months, sales of Mercedes-Benz Canada’s ML have fallen. This year, the GL-Class accounts for 9.3% of non-Sprinter Benz sales in Canada, up from 5.5% in the same period last year. The M-Class, meanwhile, after being responsible for 21.1% of Benz sales last year, now makes up just 14.3% of the brand’s sales.
