Great Year For Mercedes Globally & Malaysia
Mercedes-Benz has had a sterling year this 2015 and we share with you their globally success figures for this year. In 2015 to date Mercedes Benz handed over 161,953 vehicles to customers worldwide in November (+7.4%), which is more than ever before in a month of November. Since the beginning of the year, unit sales increased by 13.9% to 1,693,494 vehicles.
The Stuttgart-based premium brand with the three-pointed star thus surpassed its total unit sales of the previous year already in November and set a new record.
“November 2015 was the best-selling November for Mercedes-Benz so far. Our SUVs and compact cars in particular are extremely popular with customers. We achieved new records in both segments and sold more than 50,000 units of each of those two vehicle types,” stated Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales.
