Mercedes-Benz Sees Best June Ever
With over 28,000 units sold through the month of June, Mercedes-Benz USA has topped their best-ever sales figures for June. Not only that, but when the Mercedes-Benz total is added to with the company’s subsidiary brands of Mercedes-Benz vans and Smart, they actually ended up totaling 31,965 vehicles sold through June 2016. That number is a solid 2.3 percent higher than the 2015 figure and marks yet another great month for the German automaker’s American branch.
There are a few reasons that Mercedes-Benz USA believes that their sales have increased through June. The most prominent of which is that it marked the launch of the company’s E-Class vehicles.
Likewise, they launched what the Mercedes-Benz CEO Dietmar Exler has deemed as “several dream cars,” which he also believes will get Mercedes-Benz USA into excellent position for the third quarter of 2016.
Looking at the sales numbers of their best sellers through June, too, you can see exactly what Exler means. C-Class vehicles sold the most overall with 6,867 and GLEs sold 4,515 through the entirety of June. What is crazy is that the company’s E-Class cars (which includes the CLS in their report) sold 4,292 units, which might not seem all that impressive until you realize that these cars weren’t even available until the last week of June! The Mercedes-AMG line is also seeing awesome growth this year, and they sold over 1,500 of these high-performance cars through June of this year while last year only saw a bit over 1,000.
With all of this in mind, it will certainly be interesting to see how well Mercedes-Benz USA does for the rest of the summer.
