Last month, 18,915 units of the E-Class Saloon and Estate were handed over to customers, an increase of 3.4%. Very strong sales growth was achieved in the home market Germany. This was mainly due to the new E-Class Saloon, which has been available in Europe since April 9. In addition, Mercedes-Benz presented the long-wheelbase version of the new E-Class Saloon at Auto China in Beijing. This car is 140 millimetres longer than the standard version and has been specially developed for the Chinese market.

The S-Class Saloon maintained its position as the world’s best-selling luxury saloon since the beginning of this year. The S-Class was especially popular in April in Germany, where double-digit growth was achieved. The new S-Class Cabriolet was launched last month. It is the sixth variant of the current S-Class family and is the first open luxury four seater from Mercedes-Benz since 1971.
