December Was the Best Month of 2010 for Mercedes-Benz USA
“Despite the challenges of a slow recovery, we see good indicators in terms of our sales volume throughout the model range. This is certainly due in large part to the customer-directed efforts we’ve undertaken here at MBUSA over the past few years and the extraordinary commitment of our retail network to provide an unmatched ownership experience. As virtually all third-party indicators show, customers are confident about the Mercedes-Benz brand and we think that will translate to even stronger momentum going forward,” stated Ernst Lieb, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA.
The 9th generation E-Klasse sedan leads the pack when it comes to sales volume, both for the month of December and for the whole year. A staggering 5,638 models were sold just last month, bringing its annual volume to 60,922 which is a 41.4 % increase over its volume in 2009.
The C-Klasse was a close second with monthly sales of 4,924 and a yearly total of 58,785, a 12.1 % increase. Finishing the top three was the popular M-Klasse SUV, which posted monthly sales of 3,783 units, bringing its annual volume to 29,698, a 15.1 % increase over last year.
