Strictly consisting of its passenger vehicles only, the company reported delivering a total of 1,143 vehicles to its customers nationwide, which was enough to smash its all-time record, and show a 110% improvement over the same period last year (554 units in May 2014).
“Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is on the road to success. We have had an exceptional start to 2015 with sound performance in all type classes, and the figures recorded are a direct result of our dynamic market strategy. As we further strengthen our leadership position in the luxury segment, our number one priority remains our customers’ satisfaction. Just as we continue to produce quality luxury passenger cars, we are focused on exceeding customer expectations,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia President and CEO, Roland Folger.
The large sales figures were primarily driven by the sales of the brand’s key models, which are all also locally assembled: C-, E- and S-Class. These models alone accounted for 888 units sold in May 2015, driven largely by demand for the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid, C 200, and S 400 L Hybrid.
The brand’s range of compact vehicles, the A-, B-, CLA- and GLA-Class models racked up a total of 254 units sold. The leader of that bunch is said to be the A-Class.
