The strong global sales come despite a disappointing 17.7% dip in local Mercedes-Benz car sales in October.

Despite that reduction, local Mercedes-Benz sales are still 4.9% ahead of where they were at the same point last year.

On the global stage, Mercedes-Benz sold over 1.9 million cars across the first ten months of 2017 and that represents a phenomenal 11.1% increase on the 2016 total for the period.

Driving much of the growth is the increased demand for Mercedes-Benz cars and SUVs in China.

Mercedes-Benz reports a 27.8% lift in sales in the nation January to October.

“In China, more customers have already been delighted to receive their new Mercedes-Benz than in the whole of last year.” – Mercedes-Benz Sales Chief, Britta Seeger.

While some of the best-selling Mercedes-Benz models in 2017 include the E-Class (+50%), while collective SUV sales are ahead nearly 14%.
