I will, hopefully we get it tomorrow, but its the 1st and a Friday so that maybe we have to wait till MOnday. :)

Technically, the GS was to be sold March 1st but clearly, sales started in Feburary as GS sales went up 1600% or some silly number :D

DAMN...more than 3,000 GS's sold!!!! Thats damn good. I guess they might sell more than the projected 33,000 a year. That is awsome. :thumbup:

The Avalon is also selling well too. Ive seen 1 on the road so far and it was a Black XLS model with a spoiler. Its a classy car in black with all the chrome trimings. :thumbup:

Very good numbers for the GS: 3185

I wouldn't be surprised if that is bumping up very close to the 5 and the E class numbers.

psteng19 04-01-05 09:55 AM

Those are very good sales numbers.
I am wonder how the rest of the industry did, namely the RL, M, E, 5 and A6.

CK6Speed 04-01-05 10:33 AM

Wow, the GS300 outsells the GS430by more than 3 to 1. Any way to tell the numbers between GS300 and GS300 AWD?

As we all know, there are lots of ways toi move numbers and catagories around to make the figures look better, or worse for that matter, than they actually are. 203,223 vehicles for the month is a pretty staggering number. Enjoy your recalls Mercedes.

Reference this report that states Toyota up, but Lexus in a small decline. I grabbed this from CBS Marketwatch(Dow Jones):

Toyota Motor March U.S. sales up 12.3% (TM) By Shawn Langlois
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Toyota Motor (TM) on Friday reported a 12.3% increase in March U.S. sales to a record 203,223 vehicles. Toyota brand sales surged 14.7% while the luxury Lexus division posted a 1.9% decline. Toyota passenger cars surged 24.7% while light truck sales turned nominally lower.

March 2005 sales in the Luxury Sports Sedan class
 
March 2005 sales in the Luxury Sports Sedan class

5 = 3,949
E = 3,608
GS = 3,209
STS = 2,954
M = 2,253
A6 = 1,681
RL = 1,376

Not surprisingly, the biggest winners were the GS and the M.

The E was the biggest loser, whose sales went down 27.4% from March 2004 (4,971 units). However, part of the reason for this may be because of cannibalization by the CLS, which sold 1759 units.

Overall brand (March 2005 vs. March 2004):

BMW = -11.0%
MB = +1.9%
Lexus = -1.9%
Cadillac = +0.1%
Infiniti = +5.3%
Audi = -12.9%
Acura = +3.6%
