The Mercedes-Benz S-Class sold more than three times more often than any of its competitors in November 2014 while more than quadrupling the total achieved by the BMW 7-Series. The S-Class sold nearly five times more often than the Audi A8, more than five times more often than the Porsche Panamera, and ten times more often than the Jaguar XJ.
Year-over-year, S-Class volume has basically doubled through the first ten months of 2014. November sales jumped 50%, a gain of 956 units. Had S-Class sales remained level in November 2014, it still would have outsold its next-best-selling rival, the much more affordable Lexus LS, by more than two-to-one.
As for large luxury sedans with midsize-baiting prices, the Cadillac XTS, Hyundai Equus, Kia K900, and Lincoln MKS combined for 2443 November sales, a 46% drop compared with November 2013.
