There was still sales growth, however Mercedes-Benz car sales in Australia in August were below the 2017 average for the luxury brand.

VFACTS data shows Mercedes-Benz delivered 2,933 cars to Aussie customers in the month, just 31 cars (or 1.1%) above the same month last year.

That’s despite healthy sales growth for the A-Class, C-Class and GLA-Class in August (full August sales numbers below).

Sales were also up a mammoth 18.9% across the Asia-Pacific in August.

Local sales across the first eight-months are ahead by a healthier 5.2%.

But it was the stellar performance of the brand on the global stage that is worth noting.

The Stuttgart-based car manufacturer has just reported record worldwide car sales in August 2017.

Total sales in August were 170,341, a full 9.0% ahead of the same month last year.

Year to date (until end of August), 1.496 million vehicles have been handed over by the three-point star, 12.8% more than in the same period last year.

Mercedes-Benz sales and marketing chief, Britta Seeger, welcomed the strong result.

“We have achieved new best numbers every month for the past four and a half years,”

“We are proud to complete the extensive revision of our S-Class family with the world premiere of the new S-Class Coupé and the S-Class Cabriolet at the Frankfurt Motor Show.”
