For the first time in their history, Mercedes-Benz UK has sold 100,000 new cars within the time span of a single year, and it has done it with a whole month of sales to go.

“It is the first time in our UK history that we have broken into six figures – and there is still a full month of registrations to go before the year-end results. This is an unprecedented achievement by everyone who works in our passenger car division here at head office and across the network.” said Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO Mercedes-Benz UK.

The 100,000th car sold was a Cirrus White A 180 CDI Sport from Mercedes-Benz Bristol, with the model being a hand-picked company car.

“It was a lovely surprise to pick up my new car and be told I was the company’s 100,000th customer! I liked the look of the A-Class so I test drove one. It was a fantastic and smooth drive and looked great, so I opted for one as my own company car.” said Jamie Leigh Arndell, who works as Transport Manager at Bristol & Avon Group.
