Large luxury car and SUV sales in the United States in 2018, by key model (in units)

Large luxury vehicle sales by model in the United States 2018 Over 36,000 Cadillac Escalades were sold in the United States in 2018, making it the best-selling model of large luxury cars in the U.S. that year. Luxury cars are typically characterized by the importance placed on passenger comfort and quality of equipment. Here, “large” means car types that are in the category of, or larger than, a full-sized sedan (saloon car in the UK). The only fully-electric model on the list is the Tesla Model S, which was the second best-selling large luxury model with almost 30,000 units sold.
Since 2016, the American automotive industry has been struggling to sell passenger cars; contrastingly, light truck sales have been rising continuously in the United States and stood at a whopping 11.9 million units in 2018.

Meeting consumer preference

Consumer choice is the ultimate deciding factor influencing vehicle sales. In the United States, drivers are becoming interested in two opposite vehicle types which are growing in sales figures. On the one hand, Americans who tend to buy larger SUVs are now looking towards even bigger cars with 6-8 seats; on the other hand, there is an explosion of interest in plug-in electric vehicles, which in recent years have grown in sales.
