Mercedes-Benz in record August performance, selling 155,918 vehicles

Mercedes-Benz said it delivered 1,512,268 vehicles to customers worldwide in the first eight months of this year, thus setting a new record of 1.1 per cent.

Nigeria, where Mercedes-Benz has been one of the top premium brands, expectedly contributed significantly to the global performance, although details were not given in the new report.

The luxury automaker specifically said it sold 155,918 vehicles worldwide in August, making it the 30th consecutive month it would record global sales of more than 150,000 units. It attributed the performance to the ongoing strong demand for cars with the three-pointed star.

Sales by model in the US.

Be interesting to see how many SLC's have been registered for the first time here in the UK, once Q2 sales figures of 2018 are published by the Department of Transport.

The SLC is only on the chopping block bc Mercedes didnt support it. Interior is 99% unchanged in the past ten years. Advertising for it is nonexistent. Dealers that I have talked to in the US have historically known **** all about SLK or SLC models. The customer usually knows more, and will often have to tell the salesman what options are available.

My 2019 SLC 43 has been sitting at the VPC in Florida since July 22nd. The dealer doesnt give a **** and doesnt check on it unless I ask them to. I am dangerously close to buying a corvette targa top grand sport instead at this point.
