Mercedes-Benz also expanded its market shares in Europe and remains most-registered premium brand in Germany, Japan and the United States.

Our compacts and the new E-Class are also proving hugely popular with customers,” said Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Looking at the previous nine months, we can safely say that Mercedes-Benz will post another sales record for 2013.”
