Mercedes-Benz Reaches Record July Sales image

Mercedes-Benz sold 116,790 units last month, accounting for its best July.

Since the beginning of the year the German automaker sold 811,227 vehicles, up 8.1%. The strong sales were mainly brought by the new E-Class and the new compact models, especially in China, Russia and the US. The company also continued to increase in Europe, winning market share in almost all markets on the continent.

“The new E-Class has proved a resounding success, our compact models are more popular than ever and, since mid-July, we have also been delivering our new S-Class to customers in Europe,” said Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing. “Our target for 2013 as a whole is to raise the sales of passenger cars to more than 1.4 million Mercedes-Benz vehicles.”

Sales in Europe were up 15.5% in July to 54,096 units, with the UK up 15.4%, Belgium 16.9% and Turkey 192.1%. The US saw an increase of 22.5% to 23,648 units and the Asia/Pacific region sales increased a quarter from last year to 31,146 units, with China up 31.2% to 18,530 units.

Last month Mercedes sold 28,787 A-Class, B-Class and CLA-Class vehicles and the E-Class reached an amazing success selling 21,051 units, up 25.5%. The German automaker’s SUVs reached record sales up 19.5% to 181,380 units.
