All manufacturers are benefiting from the current growth of the SUV market. Especially Mercedes, considering that it has an impressive range of SUVs, tailored to very different needs.
No wonder Mercedes recorded some record sales until now and its SUVs are one of the most desired in the premium market. According to recent stats, Mercedes-Benz delivered more than 156,000 vehicles to customers in August, an increase of 11.8%.
The main contribution towards this increase came from the strong rise in unit sales of SUVs of approximately 40%. Two sales milestones were also passed last month: More than four million SUVs and 15,000 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class vehicles have been sold since their market launches.
In the period of January to August, deliveries increased by 11.7% to 1,326,635 units – more than ever before in the first eight months of a year.
