Large Luxury Car Sales In America – May 2015 YTD

1977 BMW 7-Series

BMW reported a significant 55% year-over-year U.S. 7-Series sales improvement in May 2015, the third consecutive YOY increase for BMW’s biggest car. The 7-Series was the only car in its class to record improved May sales in 2015 and is the only car in its class to do so on year-to-date terms, as well.

BMW is set to release a new generation of its 7-Series in the coming months. In the meantime, even with vast sales increases, it’s not nearly as popular in the United States as the standard bearer of the category, Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class.

S-Class volume is down 5% through the first five months of 2015 but Mercedes-Benz has still sold nearly 9000 copies of its flagship, more than double the number its nearest direct rival, the 7-Series. 

Even in 2015, which looks like it may be the healthiest 7-Series sales year since 2007, sales are likely going to end the year down 45% compared with 2002.

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 more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you’ll see the the A7 and CLS here but also with midsize luxury cars… because readers have wanted it both ways. 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. estimates say sales for those brands in the first five months of 2015 were 425, 885, 315, 61, and 475, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but Automotive News now issues estimates for the brand, and those estimates say Tesla sold 1700 cars in May; 8500 YTD., which typically estimated much lower Model S sales, estimates 2300 May sales; 9100 YTD.
