Well, and that IS the point - in 2015 manufacturers of the Oberklasse vehicles failed to attract 25% of US buyers that are willing to spend $100K on a car, while suffering DECLINING YoY sales...
Interestingly the total number of cars sold in that grouping stayed almost exactly the same. And I suppose that's the point that the author is making. That alone is an indicator that Tesla has been pulling some sales from the other cars listed. Unless there are some other strong factors pushing down sales for larger luxo-sedans?
