After it was regarded as the least succesful brand among its German rivals, Mercedes managed to overturn the situation and to start setting new records. According to recent statistics, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer managed an excelent first half of 2015.
With 898,425 vehicles delivered to customers in the first six months of 2015 (+14.7%), Mercedes-Benz recorded the highest half-year sales figures in the company’s history. The sales success is due to the high demand for SUVs and the C-Class Saloon and Estate.
In Europe, the brand set new sales records both for June and for the first half of the year. In the first six months of 2015, sales rose by 11.2% to 392,528 units. Strong growth was recorded in Germany, where sales increased to 26,800 units in June (+16.5%).
In June, a total of 54,379 customers opted for a compact model of the A-Class, B-Class, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake or GLA (+29.8%). 
The C-Class Saloon and Estate keep setting one record after another this year: sales increased by 58.7% to 214,222 units since the beginning of the year. In China, sales of C-Class Saloon doubled during the same period.
With more than 13 million E-Class Saloons and Estates delivered to customers, the E-Class is the best-selling vehicle in the history of Mercedes-Benz. The E-Class Saloon set a new sales record in the first half of the year in China, which is the biggest sales market of the model.
