Mercedes-Benz Sets Sales Record
December 14, 2007
German automaker Mercedes-Benz is not showing any sign of decline as it once again posted increased sale for the first eleven months of the year. With the automaker posting sales increase after sales increase, month after month, this newest sales record has been expected and forecasted by industry analysts. The German automaker announced that from January to November this year, they have already sold 1,079,400 units of Mercedes-Benz-made vehicles across the world. For the same period last year, Mercedes-Benz delivered 1,042,500 units.
The automaker posted an increase of 4 percent in their sales for the first eleven months of the year. Last month, the automaker also celebrated another record as they outdid their sales last year. Figures released by Mercedes-Benz showed that they have sold 102,700 passenger vehicles last month. That figure topped the 101,900-unit sale they have set last year for the same month.
The Mercedes-Benz Cars division posted an all time sales record by delivering 1,169,900 units for the first eleven months of the year. Last year, for the same period, the division has sold 1,147,600 units. For the month of November, the division also set a sales record with the delivery of 113,000 units.
One of the major reasons for the success of Mercedes-Benz is the increasing demand for the new generation E-Class. Since the start of the year, the demand for the sedan has grown almost exponentially. To date, Mercedes-Benz had already delivered 150,000 units of the vehicle all over the world.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is also instrumental in the record setting sales record for the German automaker. The said nameplate has been successful since its launch, and it continues it success into 2007. With its remarkable handling and comfort with reliable parts as tough as the Mercedes 240D radiator, it is not surprising that the C-Class is one of the most sought after Mercedes-Benz nameplates. It is still the market leader in its class all over the world.
The Mercedes-Benz B-Class is also receiving much attention from car shoppers. Since its launch in 2005, more than 300,000 consumers have already purchased a B-Class. This only shows that the German automaker is dedicated to developing and manufacturing vehicles well suited to the taste of consumers around the world.
The smart ForTwo, the iconic small car from the German automaker also posted good sales numbers. Last month, the automaker delivered 10,200 ForTwo units, an 61 percent increase over November 2006's 6,300.
