Mercedes has release the world wide sales numbers for the Mercedes Car Group. In July, Mercedes sold 102,300 units compared to 100,600 in 2005, a 2% positive change. Overall sales for the first seven months increased by a respectable 8% or 729,600 compared to 677,600 in 2005.
The S-class continues to silence it critics, by selling 55,000 units in the first seven months. This of course may not continue, but it is nice to see that the new S-class is a hit.
Mercedes-Benz SUV's (M, R, GL, and G) have also posted positive growth numbers by selling 14,000 in July, continuing to be the best-selling premium brand in the SUV segment.
The Smart car is know for suffering loses and this month is no different. They sold only 9,600 units this month, which is 22.4% decrease compared to last year. Let us all hope that the Smart car will be able to sell cars in the U.S. and make a profit.
