"We've entered the second quarter of 2013 at an incredible pace," said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of MBUSA. "A record first quarter gave us a great start. With our completely redesigned E-Class now in showrooms, I fully expect to see continued momentum in the months ahead."
Despite the imminent mass-market arrival of a cheaper sedan, Mercedes' current entry model, the C-Class continued to perform very well, with sales of 7,338, up 14.2%. The other two top selling models were the refreshed E-Class and the L-Class SUV.
