Ten million cars in just over years - a great effort C-Class!

It’s become a cornerstone of the Mercedes-Benz family and now celebrations are being planned to celebrate the production of the ten millionth C-Class.

Launched in 1982, the model is experiencing increased global popularity. In fact, more than 2.3 million C-Class sedans, estates and coupes series have left dealerships in just the last six years!

To keep up with demand Mercedes-Benz will have four factories churning out the model by 2014 – Bremen (Germany), East London (South Africa), Beijing (China) and Tuscaloosa (USA).

Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Mercedes-Benz says the model is popular with a large cross section of car buyers.

“The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a global success story.”

“Sales of over 10 million C-Class cars speak for themselves. Launched as the ‘Baby Benz’, it is now one of the most popular cars in the premium segment.”

The innovative engineering and impressive efficiency of the C-Class have been inspiring our customers for more than 30 years.”

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class in Australia is priced from $59,900.
