Mercedes-Benz USA Posts Best-Ever February Sales Volume
The brand moved 24,760 vehicles last month in the U.S. alone.
It’s been a solid year for Mercedes-Benz. The premium automaker has been moving more cars than ever before, and the brand has the sales stats to prove it. In the month of February, 2018, Mercedes-Benz sold 24,760 vehicles in the United States. That represents a 1.0% sales growth over February 2017. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz Vans, and Smart reported sales figures of 3028, and 106 units, respectively, making for a total sales volume of 27,894 vehicles this month.
“We’re off to a solid start to what will be another successful year,” said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of MBUSA. “Growing demand for the S-Class and GLC model lines helped us set a new record for February, and we look forward to a strong close to the first quarter.”
Mercedes-Benz volume leaders in February included the GLC, E-Class (including the CLS) and C-Class model lines. The GLC took the lead at 5,403, followed by E-Class sales of 4,312. The C-Class rounded out the top three with 3,947 units sold.
Mercedes-AMG high-performance models sold 2,469 units in February, with a total of 4,923 units sold year-to-date.
Interestingly, used and certified pre-owned (CPO) sales of Mercedes-Benz vehicles actually dropped as compared to last year. This is likely due to this bump in new car sales.
These big sales figures come at a crucial time for the brand, as Mercedes has been ramping up and revising its product portfolio to meet consumer demand. For 2019, consumers have access to all-new variants of the C-Class, G-Class, and CLS, among others.
