Mercedes Sales Rise to New Record in October, Boosted by China Demand

The new C-class wagon is helping to boost Mercedes sales

Daimler said vehicle sales at its Mercedes-Benz Cars unit, which includes the Mercedes and Smart brands, rose 8 percent to 146,112 in October.
The sales volume was a record for the month, boosted by strong demand in China, the company in a statement.
Mercedes marketing and sales boss Ola Kaellenius said the new C-class wagon and the S-class coupe have proved popular among customers. “We started the fourth quarter with a sales record in October,” he said in the statement.
Mercedes brand sales grew 12 percent last month to 140,941 units while Smart sales were down 40 percent to 5,171 as customers await a new generation of the ForTwo.
The division’s volume grew by 33 percent in China and 10 percent in Europe, offsetting a 5 percent drop in the United States.
Mercedes said it sold 8,397 units of its flagship S-class sedan in October, up 60 percent. A year after the launch of the new S class in all its core markets, the company has already delivered more than 100,000 units, Daimler said.
The division’s 10-month sales are up 11 percent to 1.41 million, also a record. Mercedes brand’s volume increased by 12 percent to a 1.34 million while smart sales fell 13 percent to 72,041.
