The Stuttgart car manufacturer seems to be on a roll in 2013, with sales all over the world having been improved exponentially compared to last year.
This October, for example, Mercedes-Benz delivered no less than 126,421 vehicles to its customers, the 15.3% increase compared to last year making it the best October in history from this point of view.

The year-to-date sales comprised a record-breaking total of 1,189,059 cars, which is also an improvement of 10.7% in comparison with the same period of 2012.

“Our record sales in October have provided us with a strong start to the fourth quarter, and we have further increased our market share,” said Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes-Benz Cars responsible for Marketing & Sales and ex-head of AMG. “In October we increased our sales in every key region. Since our goal is to achieve a new record for 2013 overall, we will continue to rigorously pursue our path of growth as we head towards the end of the year.”

The three-pointed star brand increased its market share in almost every European market, while in countries like Germany, Japan and the United States it remains the most-registered premium car manufacturer.
