Mercedes Benz sales up 17.6% in August 2015; maximum growth in Asia

Maximum growth has been achieved in the Asia Pacific region, where sales rose by 34 percent to a new record of 51,307 units in August 2015, when compared with same month 2014.



NEW DELHI: German luxury car manufacturer Mercedes Benz recorded total sales of 1,39,802 units in August 2015, 17.6 percent up from same month previous year.

Maximum growth has been achieved in the Asia Pacific region, where sales rose by 34 percent to a new record of 51,307 units in August 2015, when compared with same month 2014.

Contributions to this strong growth came from China (53.1 percent), Australia (28.3 percent), India (18.9 percent), and South Korea (13.9 percent), as against August 2014.

The localisation strategy of Mercedes-Benz in China bears fruits. The locally produced GLA and C-Class Saloon were especially successful in August.



Ola Kallenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales: "Our strong growth in the Asia-Pacific region made a key contribution to the good sales performance of Mercedes-Benz in August. Development of demand for the GLA is especially positive."

"After 44 years, an icon is returning in the shape of the S-Class Cabriolet at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It embodies the core of our brand in a perfect way and will give us further impetus along our growth path together with the other new products", continues Kallenius.

In Europe, 5,07,772 vehicles with the three-pointed star have been handed over to customers since the beginning of the year - more than ever before. Unit sales increased by 11.2 percent compared with the same period of last year.
