For the first time, global sales by Mercedes Benz passed the mark of 200,000 units in a November. Unit sales also increased by 1.4% in the period of January to November. In November and since the beginning of the year, unit sales increased in the three major sales markets: China, Germany and the United States.
Important growth drivers for Mercedes Benz unit sales in November were compact cars and SUVs; among other things due to new models such as the A-Class Saloon, the B-Class, the GLC and the GLE.
Global deliveries of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Saloon also increased from January to November.
“With convincing products and the impetus from our model offensive with compact cars and SUVs, we have started the year-end spurt with confidence. In November, we presented the Maybach GLS, the first SUV model from our exclusive Mercedes-Maybach brand.
For our customers, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS combines the advantages of the popular GLS with the luxury of a high-end Saloon that Maybach customers are used to.
Since the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Saloon was launched in 2015, more than 45,000 units of this model alone have been delivered to customers all over the world,” stated Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and of Mercedes-Benz AG responsible for Sales.
From January to November., 105,600 vehicles of the smart brand were delivered worldwide.
Sales of SUVs in the month of November totalled around 76,300 units of the GLA, GLC, GLC Coupé, GLE, GLE Coupé, GLS and G-Class- an increase of 10.5% last month and a new November record.
