It was a great start of the year at the MB USA headquarters in Montvale, New Jersey, after the bean counters recently reported the company's highest ever annual sales volume for 2013.
Mercedes-Benz alone sold no less than 312,534 units last year, which represents an increase of 14 percent over the 274,134 cars that were sold back in 2012.

“It's been an incredible year for Mercedes-Benz in every way,” said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of MBUSA. “We saw record sales, flexed our muscles across the entire product line from top to bottom and brought the customer experience to an all-time high. With the help of our dealer partners and the entire organization behind us, we expect this beautifully choreographed series of product debuts to lead us to another phenomenal year in 2014.”

The 21,815 units of the Sprinter Vans represent an increase of 4.1 percent compared to 2012, while the 9,264 smart fortwo cars add to a record total of 343,614 vehicles sold in the US during 2013, or an increase of 12.6 percent from the 305,072 vehicles sold in 2012.
