“It’s been an extraordinary year for the brand, embodied in two cars - the CLA and the S-Class - as stunning as they are technologically fit,” said the usually outspoken Steve Cannon, president and CEO of MBUSA.

“More importantly, October sales show they’re resonating with customers. The recently-launched CLA is already one of the top volume models and our flagship S-Class, just rolling into dealerships, is up 75 per cent. With sustained momentum and compelling product across the model range, we’re looking toward a record finish in the final stretch of 2013.” he also added.

Mercedes-Benz alone sold 30,069 cars in October, up no less than 25.4 per cent compared to last year, while its year-to-date sales increased by 13.7 per cent to a yet another record-breaking figure of 245,125 cars.
