It was a nearly universal problem. 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.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The BMW 6-Series is listed here as it now features a “mainstream” sedan bodystyle in addition to its two-door variants, just like the larger S-Class. 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, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but estimates 1700 February Tesla Model S sales, 2900 YTD, down 11% and 9%, respectively.
