Mercedes-Benz Middle East May sales best since October 2008
Mercedes-Benz Middle East & Levant has had its best sales month since October 2008 with over 1520 cars delivered in May. Year on year sales were up 22 % with the C-Class and E-Class models particularly popular.
“Our extremely affordable special edition models are a big hit with the C-Class AMG package taking over 75% of total C-Class sales,” said Frank Bernthaler, Director, Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Middle East & Levant. “Waiting in the wings we have a firework of special editions which we will launch in the next three months including a special Business Edition of the E-Class and Grand Editions of our GLK, ML and GL SUVs which provide fantastic value for money.”
The month of May saw the German luxury car company deliver nearly 270 C-Class and some 500 E-Class across the region with the cabrio and coupe versions proving very popular.
The new SLS ‘gullwing’, first shown at the Dubai Motor Show last December, also captured the imagination of drivers across the region with nearly 60 happy customers receiving their supercars.
And 69 units of the other main Mercedes-Benz attraction at last year’s Dubai Show, the limited Edition 30th Anniversary model of the G-Wagen, were delivered.
“Our distributors across the region are definitely seeing a resurgence in the market and we are confident that we can ride this new wave with the new products we have in the pipeline,” added Bernthaler.
