Large Luxury Car Sales In America – November 2015 YTD

2016 BMW 7-Series white

BMW USA once again began selling its flagship sedan, the 7-Series, in healthy numbers during the month of November 2015. Not since April, when 1507 7-Series sedans were sold, had BMW sold the 7-Series in four-digit figures. 1045 copies of the 7er were sold by BMW in the United States in November 2015, a massive 48% year-over-year leap forward.

2015 is still a poor year for 7-Series sales, not just by the standards of the first 11 months of 2014, but historically speaking. As recently as 2010, a dreadful year for auto sales in America, more than 12,000 copies of the 7-Series were sold. Think back to the six years leading up to 2008’s recession, when BMW averaged more than 18,000 7-Series sales per month.

But it’s not just the 7-Series. Mercedes-Benz’s segment-dominating S-Class is down 12% to 19,771 sales in 2015, but the projected sales pace for the S-Class’s year end total is still down nearly 30% compared with 2006.

In addition to style-centric desires and the inclination to sit up high, consumers see greater value in the flexibility of SUVs, even in this luxury arena.
