Mercedes Sees Sustained Sales


    Mercedes-Benz Canada and its national dealer network delivered 2,328 Mercedes-Benz, Sprinter, and smart vehicles throughout February which translates into an overall gain of 5.3 per cent for the month. A total of 1,953 Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and luxury light trucks were retailed, representing a 14.7 per cent year-to-date sales increase. Passenger car sales totaled 1,009 units – attributable to strong CLA-Class and B-Class model sales along with a particularly remarkable performance for the S-Class – up 204.5 per cent compared to last year. On the luxury light truck side, a total of 944 units were sold. This was fueled by M-Class deliveries growing by 34.5 per cent from last February. The diesel take rate for luxury light trucks was 79.4 per cent for the month, while permanent all-wheel drive 4MATIC units accounted for 77 per cent of overall passenger car and light truck sales in February (excluding smart).
