Mercedes-Benz sells 1.18 million cars this year so far

Mercedes-Benz sells 1.18 million cars this year so far

German luxury car giant Mercedes-Benz says it has recorded the strongest-selling quarter in the company’s history. From April to June, the brand sold 594,528 units worldwide. Since the beginning of the year, Mercedes has sold 1.18 million cars all over the world. 

With 203,783 vehicles sold, June was the month with the second highest sales since the beginning of the year. Interestingly, figures of last month were affected amongst other things by a fire at a US supplier. This meant a lower production of the SUVs for export at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa and sales were less than planned.

In Europe, Mercedes-Benz sold 476,790 cars in the first half of the year (-1.5%), which is slightly less than in the previous, so far best, first half-year in 2017. Approximately one third of those cars were sold in Germany. In France, Spain, Sweden, Poland and Denmark, more cars were sold than ever before in the first six months of a year.

Mercedes-Benz completed the first half of the year in the Asia-Pacific region with new best-ever sales, which increased by a double-digit 12.5% to 493,358 units. The biggest contribution to this growth came from China, where 340,164 cars were sold in the first six months, an increase of 16.2%.
