"It became apparent during the previous months, that the highly volatile
U.S. automotive market is affecting the sales figures of Mercedes-Benz.
Nevertheless, we see an ongoing demand for our SUV lineup. The limited
availability of several models impacted our monthly totals in August,"
said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of MBUSA. "Presently, our thoughts
and concerns lie with our dealer partners, employees and their families
in Texas, who are experiencing many challenges at the moment."

Mercedes-Benz volume leaders in August included the C-Class, GLC and GLE
model lines. The C-Class took the lead at 5,304, followed by GLC sales
of 4,498. The GLE rounded out the top three with 3,750 units sold.

total 21,121 sold year-to-date (up 49.5%).
