Mercedes-Benz announces record June sales thanks to rising demand

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Mercedes-Benz attributes its record-breaking sales for the month of June to the growing demand for its most expensive models. Daimler's luxury car brand expects the marque to post a significant increase in the current quarter.

In a statement last Monday, head of sales and marketing Joachim Schmidt said that June marks the eighth straight month that the company was able to boost its sales by a double-digit percentage.

He also said that the company is now in "an excellent position" to do well in the upcoming months and to work on its plans for its success to continue with a considerable increase in the third quarter.

The E-Class and S-Class model lines, which are Mercedes' earning drivers, primarily boosted the sales volumes of the Mercedes brand by 13.2% to an all-time high of 113,300 vehicles for June.

The carmaker said that it's likely to have double-digit volume gains in many markets, including Japan and the US. These two markets posted increases that exceeded 20%.

However, China is clearly the leader when it comes to sales growth as it has nearly tripled its volume. Meanwhile, the demand for Daimler's Smart ForTwo miniature two-seater continued to drop. This is a concept designed more than a decade ago by Swatch founder Nicolas Hayek who recently died.
