    Re: Lincoln Sales in China

    Do they only ship a certain number of cars over there? I find it odd that both months had MKZ sales at exactly 206.

    So much for China causing "supply constraints" in the US. I thought they would sell much more than this. For reference, Cadillac sells over 12X as many cars per month in China.

    They have more dealerships. And better-looking cars.

    Remember that Lincoln hopes to have 60 stores by next year.

    Furthermore, they aren't even selling their full lineup AFAIK - not that I expect sales of the MKT and MKS would have changed much, but they only recently began selling the MKX there.

    So, 5,757 is 12 times 835? Do tell.

    I believe you're off by a year; they should have 60 open by 2016, which is less than two months away. I'd estimate they had around 20-30 last August.

    IIRC, Cadillac sold around 100k cars last year in China, which averages out to about 8.5k a month, or 10x what Lincoln was getting this summer. I think Cadillac will get over 100k this year, but I haven't looked in a while at what they're projected to get.

    They only sold 73,000 units in China in 2014.

    You're correct! So in the not too distant future they should have 60 dealers in China, which even then is not a large number of stores. And as mentioned, they still don't have a full lineup there (well, as full as their NA lineup is), and the MKX only went on sales some weeks ago.

    How do you go from 0 units per month to 6,000 units per month without passing through 800 units per month? Some of you expected they'd be at Cadillac volumes in the first year?

    MKZ is so damn ugly I'm surprised they sold even 1.

    Re: Lincoln Sales in China

    Some of you guys crack me up. What kind of numbers did you expect from a brand that just now started selling cars over there from a limited amount of dealerships? Mercedes-Benz numbers?

    Then the ATS, CTS, and XTS must be beyond hideous, because the MKZ outsells all three of them in the United States...
