Audi - 1,302,659 vehicles (could argue Bentley should be included, but would not affect order)

(BMW was also the top luxury brand in the US, barely edging out MB. The earthquake/tsunami troubles knocked Lexus off the #1 spot for the first time in 11 years).
He meant that the Daimler group and VAG are bigger than simply BMW which is an independent essentially.
