Car lines are continuing to crash, HARD. Wonder how much if it is- too many too-similar named AND looking sedans?

Car sales every where are dropping, and the E-class was up.  This was their best June sales ever, compared to June 2015 which was a record setting month for them. 

 

No one mentioned that all 4 SUVs were up 27% or better.  People want crossovers/SUVs, and Mercedes has lots of them to offer.  Lexus is asleep at the switch with hopelessly dated GX and LX, Cadillac and Acura only have 2 each, Audi has 2 tiny ones and a Q7 that isn't mid-size or full size.

You're right, didn't see that one.

 

Well then. For Caddy and American luxury, it's still them bleeding. In order for them to truly win, they have together - Cadillac, Lincoln and some of the more expensive Buick models have to outsell the rest. Which they still don't.

 

So...as a Caddy fan, I have to wonder. Mercedes can afford  lose yet still more sedan sales, yet they still beat Cadillac, because it's not like Cadillac sales are snatching some that many people leaking away from import premium sedan market.

Yeah, but for the home market?

 

In Germany and Japan, there is no resolution. The American luxury brands outselling the domestics? NEVER

 

So the best hope is to own the home market. Now collectively, the big 2 and the FCA brands are still something. But Luxury should be a shoe-in - but they get thrashed. Some of it is perceptions. North America has so many different kinds of folk, instead of more homogeneous demographics in European nations....So we have already a culture willing to import cars and other goods just because we import people from all backgrounds. 

 

And Caddy and if Lincoln gets surges with the new investment, and first stab at the future RWD capable platform soon and if Buick moves further up, they all need to court those snobs who can't be courted to achieve that.
