Higher demand for E-Class and S-Class helps Mercedes with record sales

Higher demand for E-Class and S-Class helps Mercedes with record sales

Mercedes-Benz, as we know, has had a good run this year. With global sales of over 1.8 million cars, the brand has sold more vehicles than ever before in a half-year. This is down to some of the existing models garnering more sales thanks to new generation versions. 

Sales of the S-Class sedan increased by 27.5 per cent to 43,106 units in the first half of the year. The growth was particularly strong in the flagship’s biggest markets – China, the USA, South Korea and Germany. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class set a new record in the first half of the year. Since its market launch, more than 30,000 units have now been handed over to customers.

Mercedes says that the demand for the E-Class sedan and estate is higher than ever before. Since the beginning of the year, sales increased to the new record number of 182,135 units. The long-wheelbase version of the E-Class sedan (also sold here in India) was especially popular in the first half of the year; just like the long-wheelbase version of the C-Class sold in China.

In terms of SUVs, a total of 422,645 units of the GLA, GLC, GLC Coupe, GLE, GLE Coupe, GLS and G-Class were delivered to customers worldwide. This was primarily due to the GLC which Mercedes deems as its best seller.
