Year-to-date registrations were up 14.9 percent, to 61,189 cars, thus making the tri-star brand the fastest growing premium manufacturer on the UK market.
The E-Class range also experienced a record year, with 16,374 units being delivered in the first seven months of 2013, of which 8,985 being E-Class sedans, another record. The CLS also had it best-ever sales YTD (Year-To-Date), with 2,565 new models registered.
Although the W220 S-Class will soon be replaced in showrooms by the new W222, the model remains the number one selling car in the luxury segment, which speaks volumes about the vehicle's appeal.
AMG models had a 2012 best-ever sales performance, but 2013 beat that record by a long shot. Almost 90 per cent more new AMGs were registered in July, while sales for the first seven months of 2013 increased with 56.5 per cent. It's not exactly a bad time to be a Mercedes-Benz shareholder.
