Mercedes-Benz sells 1000,000 cars in a year in the UK for the first timeSun, 01 Dec 2013
Mercedes Bristol hands over the 100,000th Mercedes old in the UK in 2013
It looks like Mercedes move in to a more convincing compact car with the new A-Class is already paying dividends, with Mercedes announcing it has already broken the 100,000 car sales in the UK for this year with a full month still to go. The 100,000th car is, appropriately, a white Mercedes A 180 CDI Sport – perhaps the best-selling A-Class – which has been collected by its new owner from Mercedes-Benz of Bristol.
This is the first full year the new A-Class has been on sale (although the first customer cars didn’t start arriving until well in to the new year) and augers well for sales numbers in 2014.
And 2014 will also see significant sales for other A-Class cars too, with the new Mercedes CLA on sale and the new compact SUV GLA also likely to make a significant mark on UK sales numbers in 2014.
Of course, Mercedes will continue to see substantial sales from the new S Class and recently revised E-Class, and 2014 will also see the arrival of the new Mercedes C Class, likely to be a good jump on from the current model and probably good enough to steal sales from the BMW 3 Series.
With more an more offerings lower down the price scale, it’s hard to imagine Mercedes sales for 2014 being anything other than another record-breaking level in the UK.
