Share:





Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported May sales volume at 26,893
units, a decrease of 8.2% from the 29,299 vehicles sold during the same
month last year. On a year-to-date basis, Mercedes-Benz retails totaled
132,966 units, down 1.0% from the previous year, which was an all-time
record for MBUSA. Adding 3,066 units for Vans and 331 units for smart,
MBUSA achieved a grand total of 30,242 vehicles for the month, down 7.1%
from May of last year.

"High demand combined with short supplies on some of our most popular
models (GLC, CLA and GLA) during the new model changeover created some
challenges," said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of MBUSA. "With 2018
models, particularly CLA and GLA, now arriving in dealer showrooms we
expect to be back on track for a strong year."

Mercedes-Benz volume leaders in May included the C-Class, GLE and
E-Class (including the CLS) model lines. The C-Class took the lead at
6,996, followed by the GLE sales of 4,631. The E-Class rounded out the
top three with 4,068 units sold.

Mercedes-AMG high-performance models sold 2,848 units in May, with a
total of 14,317 units sold year-to-date (up 53.2%).

Separately, Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (MBCPO) models recorded
sales of 10,887 vehicles in May, a decrease of 4.0% when compared to the
same month last year (11,343). On a year-to-date basis, MBCPO sold
51,239 vehicles, an increase of 1.1% over 2016 (50,700).
