Jan. 2007 Sales: Mercedes-Benz USA

MONTVALE, N.J., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming off its thirteenth year

of consecutive sales increases, Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported

sales of 17,069 new vehicles for January 2007, up 36.9 percent from last

January making this the best January sales in the company's history.

In 2006, Mercedes-Benz significantly enhanced its competitive presence

in the luxury light truck market with the launch of the full-sized luxury

SUV: the GL-Class, which sold 1,815 units in January. The popularity of the

M-Class model line continued to build with a 19.8 percent increase compared

to last January (2,351 vs. 1,962). As a group, sales for Mercedes-Benz

vehicles in the luxury light truck segment continue to gain momentum with

an 82.8 percent increase over January 2006.

Other highlights for MBUSA sales in January include a 24 percent

increase in its portfolio of passenger cars (12,058 vs. 9,728). Volume for

the month was led by the C-Class with 3,928 units sold, a 26.8 percent

increase over last January's 3,098 units. Sales for the E-Class family of

sedans and wagons, including those with the new clean diesel technology

called BlueTec, grew by 36.9 percent with 3,375 models sold.

As a group, model lines at the high-end of the Mercedes-Benz portfolio

-- S-, SL-, and CL-Classes -- rose 78.1 percent (2,705 vs. 1,519 units) in

January. Contributing to this was the popularity of the top-of-the-line CL

coupe which was introduced in December (up 279.4 percent) and the continued

demand for the ninth generation S-Class (up 125.1 percent).

Separately, the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicle program

reported sales of 3,609 units, an increase of 17.7 percent compared to last

January.
