The increasing popularity of the Mercedes-Benz brand rocketed ahead further in May with nearly 13% more sales in the month compared to the same month last year.
As is the trend for many manufacturers, much of the growth came from SUV sales with Mercedes-Benz enjoying a 42% increase in sales of its SUV range compared to May 2015.
Mercedes-Benz was also again the top-selling luxury car brand in Australia in May.
While for the first five months of the year Mercedes-Benz sales increased by 12.3% for a total of 818,175 deliveries.
Ola Kallenius is the head of Marketing and Sales at Mercedes-Benz, he says the May results were outstanding.
“Our double-digit growth in Europe and Asia-Pacific made a major contribution to the strong unit sales of Mercedes-Benz in May,”
“More than 1.6 million Saloons and Estates of the 212 predecessor series have been sold by today.
“We are sure the new generation of the E-Class will continue its strong heritage successfully.”
