Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported April sales volume at 26,932
units, decreasing 7.9% from the 29,236 vehicles sold during the same
month last year. On a year-to-date basis, Mercedes-Benz retails totaled
106,073 units, increasing 1.0% from the previous year, which was a
record for MBUSA. Adding 2,193 units for Vans and 365 units for smart,
MBUSA achieved a grand total of 29,490 vehicles for the month, down 8.7%
from last year, and up 0.5% year-to-date (117,125).

"While we're outpacing last year, we saw some challenges in April due to
limits on availability of some of our most popular model lines (GLC, CLA
and GLA) during model changeover," said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO
of MBUSA. "That said, we are looking for another record year."

Mercedes-Benz volume leaders in April included the C-Class, GLE and
E-Class (including the CLS) model lines. The C-Class took the lead at
7,821, followed by the GLE sales of 4,468. The E-Class rounded out the
top three with 4,059 units sold.

Mercedes-AMG high-performance models sold 3,130 units in April, with a
total of 11,469 units sold year-to-date (up 48.3%).

Separately, Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (MBCPO) models recorded
sales of 9,874 vehicles in April, a decrease of -1.8% when compared to
the same month last year (10,054). On a year-to-date basis, MBCPO sold
40,352 vehicles, and increase of 2.5% over 2016 (39,357).
