Mercedes-Benz Is Having Its Best Sales Year Ever

Record

What is helping Mercedes sell so many cars?

According to data from Daimler, the Mercedes-Benz brand is coming off of record breaking sales for the first half of 2016. Following up on record sales is not always easy for a manufacturer, but Mercedes seems to show no signs of slowing down. In July, Mercedes sold 163,770 vehicles worldwide (up 9.4% from last July). Sales for the year are now up to 1,170,389 units (up 11.7% from last year). The new E-Class was among the best-selling models in July, but SUVs, not surprisingly, were the main source of growth for Mercedes.

Sales for Mercedes SUVs reached a new record of 56,297 units in July (up 43.6%). Demand for the new GLC helped bolster insane SUV sales, and we completely understand why. The GLC is a very handsome and affordable SUV and upcoming GLC 43 and GLC 63 AMG versions will be even cooler. Mercedes also sold 12,000 coupes, roadsters, and convertibles in July (up 19.6% from last year). The new C-Class Coupe and S-Class Cabriolet helped contribute to this growth. Even the Smart brand increased its sales in July to 10,000 units (up 13.8%) thanks to the car's popularity in China where sales tripled. Mercedes-Benz has come with an onslaught of amazing models, and the world has taken notice.
