Mercedes-Benz India registers 5.3 per cent sales growth in the first quarter of 2013

Mercedes-Benz India announced their first quarter sales result of 2009 units for January to March 2013. The company has recorded a growth of 5.3 per cent over the corresponding period of 2012 (total 1908 units were sold by Mercedes-Benz in the period January till March 2012).

"We are very satisfied with the company performance in this quarter. Given the overall strain in the Indian economy and the fact that the Passenger Vehicles market has de-grown by double digits in Jan-Feb 2013, an incremental 5.3 per cent performance enhancement is encouraging.There are several exciting product launches slated in the next months and riding the wave of these fascinating products, we envisage a double-digit growth in the next quarter," said Eberhard Kern, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.

The E-class has been the single largest contributor to the sales volumes in January-March 2013 period with more than 800 units sold (increase of about 25 per cent over the corresponding period in 2012) while the Mercedes-Benz Dream Cars (comprising Completely Built imported cars like the AMG range, the SLK-class and the CLS-class) have registered highest growth (48 per cent increase over the corresponding period in 2012).
