Mercedes-Benz Sets New Record; Sells Over 1.18Million Cars In First Half Of 2018

The first half of 2018 has proved to be record setting for Mercedes-Benz. It was the best quarter in the history of the company, in terms of sales.

Between April to June, 594,528 customers received their new Mercedes-Benz (+1.9%).

Thus, Mercedes-Benz sold more vehicles than ever before in a half-year: Since the beginning of the year, 1,188,832 cars with the three-pointed star were delivered to customers all over the world. Unit sales were thus 3.9% higher than in the previous highest first half-year in 2017. In the first six months, Mercedes-Benz was the premium brand with the most new registrations in several markets, including Germany, France, Russia, Switzerland, Portugal, South Korea, Australia, the USA and Canada.

With 203,783 vehicles sold, June was the month with the second highest sales since the beginning of the year (-2.6%). Figures of last month were affected amongst other things by a fire at a US supplier. This meant a significant lower production of the SUVs for the world market at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa and sales were less than planned.
