Mercedes Benz A-Class Racks Up 90,000 Orders Beating The VW Golf MK7

The sleek looking all new Mercedes A-Class has taken n more orders over the current segment leader, the all new VW Golf Mk7. Previously, the A Class was primarily bought by the older generation due to its MPV like looks and mundane drive, but with the sporty and dynamic styling of the latest model, Mercedes has seen plenty of younger buyers stream into showrooms eager for a test drive. The car has proven such a success that Mercedes has already racked up 90,000 orders, Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche revealed this recently to Reuters. This is more than double the number of orders for the VW Golf Mk7 which went on sale just a few months after the release of the  A Class.  In fact, even before the new A Class officially went on sale, surging pre-orders for the car following its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show meant Mercedes was already at full production capacity and needed to outsource further production to independent vehicle manufacturer Valmet of Finland. With just the new A Class and B Class models, Mercedes is already on track to see its sales increase 5 percent this year over last year’s record of 1.28 million units. At this rate, the company is confident it will be able to double its sales to around 2.6 million units annually by 2020 and overtake Audi and BMW to become the world’s largest luxury automaker once more.
