Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) officially posted their greatest sales for the month of November, at 32,649 units. That is an improvement of 15.6% from last year, which also brings the automaker's year-to-date sales up to a new record of 273,622, up 14.5% from the previous year.
While MBUSA includes other vehicle lines, such as smart cars and Sprinter vans, the Mercedes-Benz line alone accounted for a significant portion of those sales at 30,315 for the month and 245,910 for the year.
The C-, E-, and M-Class models led the charge, accounting for the largest percentage of Mercedes-Benz sales. In particular, the C-Class — a sporty gateway model to the Mercedes-Benz line that is targeted at younger drivers — took the lead with 8,565 units sold.
E-Class vehicles are in their ninth generation now and accounted for 8,126 units, which was an improvement of 59.5% over 2011. The automaker's top-selling SUV, the M-Class, accounted for the last of the top-three sales contributors with 3,894 new models on the road.
Even at the high end, vehicles such as the 2013 SL Roadster are selling incredibly well. This model in particular sold 573 units in November — while that may seem low, it is over six times what was sold in November of 2011, indicating a significant increase in interest in Mercedes-Benz vehicles across the board.
