The Mercedes-Benz S-Class continued to lead America’s core full-size luxury limo class in February 2017, but sales were down 36% in a category which tumbled 20%.
It was a nearly universal problem. HybridCars.com says sales of the Tesla Model S – an indirect rival – slid 11%, as well. The Audi A8 stood out because of a 15% uptick. Sales of the new BMW 7-Series rose 1%. But those gains added only 40 sales to the ledger.
The Genesis G90, not included in this group by GCBC when it was previously the Hyundai Equus, also added 327 sales to the mix, with the G90 outperforming the A8, Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, and much more costly Maserati Quattroporte.
