Mercedes-Benz has reported record-breaking sales throughout the year, and the month of October is no different. For the tenth month of 2012, Mercedes reported total sales of 23,978 units, which shows a 5.9% increase over last year. This helps the automaker to a total year-to-date sales number of 215,596 new cars sold. This is a new record total and an increase of almost 12% over last year.
“Despite the challenges of a storm of this magnitude and the incredible hardship in the Northeast, our strongest market, we managed to achieve another record month,” Steve Cannon, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA, told media. “We’re still optimistic about ending this year with the highest sales in our history.”
Mercedes-Benz USA has also donated $1 Million to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief efforts.
The C-Class was the highest selling model as it is the sportiest and least expensive. Most first-time luxury buyers opt for the Mercedes C-Class.
