Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Announces Q3 2017 Results – Still On Track For Another Record Year

Right before unveiling the new E350e at its assembly plant in Pekan, Pahang last week, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia announced its sales results as of the third quarter of 2017.

A total of 8,771 vehicles were delivered in the first nine months of 2017, with 6,580 of them being locally assembled units.

Out of the grand total: 

  • Sedans: 5,238 units
  • SUV: 1,895 units
  • Compact cars: 1,220 units  

As for the sedans:

  • C-Class: 3,044 units 
  • E-Class: 1,891 units 
  • S-Class: 303 units 
  • Dream Cars range: 406 units

Although MBM sold 276 units less than what it did the same period last year, its vice president for sales and marketing, Mark Raine said that the company is still on track towards achieving record sales at the end of 2017.

He said that this is due to the fact that models that were launched towards the end of the third quarter like the GLC 200, are gaining a lot of demand from customers. He also added that the newly launched E350e will contribute to what is anticipated to be a very successful final quarter of 2017.

Having contributed a total of RM 1 billion on the Malaysian market to date, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia remains the no.1 premium brand in the market with a market share of 2.3%.

Moving forward in supporting the EEV ambitions of the country, MBM also announced that it will be launching dedicated charging stations to provide added customer convenience.

That being said, the first station will be established at the Bangsar Shopping Centre within the coming months.
