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.
