Amidst several economic challenges in the global auto market, Mercedes-Benz delivered more than 195,000 vehicles in just May 2019 alone. Read the update!

Considering the fact that here on Naijauto, we usually get updates as well as new listings of various Brand-new, Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Mercedes-Benz cars listed for sale in Nigeria every month, it’s not surprising to hear that the German automaker managed to deliver a massive 195,000 plus vehicles in May 2019 alone.

This impressive Mercedes-Benz sales figure in May was achieved because of its successful launch of the latest CLA Coupe and A-Class models in European market. It is remarkable, that in such a currently competitive global auto market environment, the brand’s all-new compact-car models alone generated so much sales momentum in various key markets all over the world. However, the current changes made to the brand’s highest-volume SUV series had a dampening effect on its total units sold for the month of May.

Generally, the automaker sold a total of 938,499 units of its vehicles from January to May 2019. And also, for this same month of May 2019, the automaker had made sure to maintain its overall market leadership particularly in the auto market’s “Premium” segment across nations like Australia, Japan, South Korea, Finland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Portugal, Belgium, Spain, France, United Kingdom and Germany.

When commenting on this May 2019 notable sales figure, a Management Board member of the Daimler AG division, Britta Seeger, who is particularly responsible for the “Sales & Marketing” of Mercedes-Benz cars said;

“Despite a challenging market environment and ongoing model changes, Mercedes-Benz increased its unit sales in many markets in May. We are very confident that the significant sales momentum from our model offensive will be reflected in the second half of the year, particularly with the SUVs,”

“The third month in a row with the worldwide growth in sales of Mercedes-Benz compact cars demonstrates the strong demand for our new models. We are very pleased with the excellent feedback, especially from our younger customers, on the launch of the new CLA Coupé in Europe, on the new A-Class and on our MBUX multimedia system.”
