June 2015 brought a double sales record for Daimler AG, topping off what turned out to be the best half of the year ever for Mercedes-Benz Cars, but also registering the strongest ever sales month in China.
At the end of the first half of 2015, Mercedes-Benz has 898,425 sold cars to show for, making this the best six months ever in terms of volumes sold in the history of the brand (see the full table at the bottom of the page). The second quarter of the year also exceeded all previous quarters in terms of sales figures. In June, the brand with the star handed over 169,616 vehicles to customers (+19.3%). The sales success is due to the high demand for SUVs and the C-Class Saloon and Estate.
“June saw Mercedes-Benz complete not only the best ever first half of the year in terms of sales, but, with 38.5% growth, we have also recorded the strongest sales month in China,” says Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales.
Europe continues to be the stronghold of Mercedes-Benz accounting for more than a third of global sales, with the home market of Germany being the main culprit with just over third of total sales on the Old Continent. Still, other markets such as the UK or Spain also registered strong growth.
The US market is shortly lagging behind the Chinese one, but the latter is on a significantly more alert growth, rising 38.5 percent as opposed to 5.8 in the USA.
