Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported August sales of 20,339
Mercedes-Benz models, a decrease of 19.8% from August 2017.
Mercedes-Benz Vans reported best-ever August sales of 3,745 units (up
4.6%) and smart reported 108 units, bringing MBUSA to a grand total of
24,192 vehicles for the month. On a year-to-date basis, sales of
Mercedes-Benz vehicles totaled 199,215, with an additional 23,575 units
for Vans and 861 vehicles for smart, bringing the sales volume to
223,651, a decrease of 5.9% from last year.

"While customer demand remains high, our inventory levels are impacted
by delayed availability of many of our 2019 models," said Dietmar Exler,
president and CEO of MBUSA. "We are currently replenishing the inventory
of our popular 2019 CLA-, GLC-, E- and GLS-Class this month."

Mercedes-Benz volume leaders in July included the GLC, C-Class and GLE
model lines. The GLC took the lead at 4,926, followed closely by C-Class
sales of 4,071. The GLE rounded out the top three with 3,622 units sold.

August sales of Mercedes-AMG high-performance totaled 2,032 units, with
19,360 vehicles sold year-to-date.

Separately, Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (MBCPO) models recorded
sales of 12,678 vehicles in August, an increase of 25.5% when compared
