Mercedes-Benz sales soar 9.2%

PanARMENIAN.Net - Automaker Mercedes-Benz says it sold 94,895 vehicles in January — a year-on-year surge of 9.2 percent, AP reported.

The only place where sales of the German company's luxury cars dipped was at home, where sales dropped 0.7 percent compared with January 2012.

By comparison, Mercedes says industry-wide sales fell 8.6 percent during the month.

Mercedes said Tuesday, February 5 it sold 24,783 cars in North America in January, nearly ten percent more than a year earlier and twice as many as it delivered to customers in Germany during the same month. Sales in China grew more than 15 percent to 16,695.

The subcompact Smart, which is counted separately, sold 7,285 units, down from 7,605 a year earlier.

Mercedes-Benz is the flagship division of Stuttgart-based Daimler AG, which also makes trucks and buses.
