check out the chart

Measured by year-over-year decline, the BMW 5-Series was the 20th-worst-selling vehicle in America in July 2015. Its key rival, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, ranked 51st thanks to 26% drop.

For the 5-Series, July was the second consecutive month with fewer than 3000 U.S. sales. Before June, monthly 5-Series volume had dipped below the 3000-unit mark only three times in the previous 56 months. 5-Series sales are down 23% so far this year.

As for the E-Class, which escaped the ignominy of this worst seller list again in July, U.S. volume has now decreased in twelve consecutive months.

These July listings are not as much about how a model is “selling” - - as they are about - - how much remaining inventory the dealers had on hand at the end of the model year. Remaining inventories were high in July 2014 - so huge discounts were given to clear them out. Some models like the Honda Ridgeline were being phased out.. so very few remained in Dealers inventories by July 2015.
