Mercedes-Benz started the new year just as well as it ended 2017 – with over 193,414 units delivered in January alone – making it the best start to the year for the three-pointed star, ever.

“With more than 193,000 Mercedes-Benz cars sold in January, we achieved the most successful start to a year in the company’s history. And with the presentation of the new G-Class, we had an emotional start to the new year,” said Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales, Britta Seeger.

Sales of Mercedes-Benz SUVs in Malaysia have been primarily driven by the GLC 200 and GLC250.

In Europe, 65,286 customers received the keys to their new Mercedes-Benz with sales records set in Germany, Spain, Portugal, Poland and Sweden.

Over here in the Asia-Pacific region, 94,439 units were snapped up with China raking in the most sales with 68,425 units. This is followed by South Korean, Taiwanese, Indian and Malaysian markets.

Even sales from the Mercedes-Benz Dream Cars line-up achieved an all-time high, outselling even BMW’s M cars, with over 170,000 units delivered in 2017. Among the 12 cars from the Dream Cars line-up, the most favoured models were the C-Class coupe and Cabriolet.
