Mercedes US Sales Up 8.3% in May
"We've seen five consecutive months of best-ever sales in 2013," said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of MBUSA. "Strong momentum carries across the entire product line from our entry models straight up to the high end, which is ahead 24 percent for the year. We expect to build on that pace as more of our completely redesigned E-Class models roll into dealer showrooms."
The C-Class was once again the prime mover, with 8,013 examples being sold across the US in May, 20.5% from May 2012. Sales of the E-Class, which receives a complete redesign for 2014 and is now arriving in dealerships, followed at 4,930. Also a top performer for Mercedes, the M-Class registered 3,219.
