Mercedes-Benz USA Reports April Sales of 26,932

May 2, 2017 – ATLANTA

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported April sales volume at 26,932 units, decreasing 7.9% from the 29,236 vehicles sold during the same month last year. On a year-to-date basis, Mercedes-Benz retails totaled 106,073 units, increasing 1.0% from the previous year, which was a record for MBUSA. Adding 2,193 units for Vans and 365 units for smart, MBUSA achieved a grand total of 29,490 vehicles for the month, down 8.7% from last year, and up 0.5% year-to-date (117,125).

"While we're outpacing last year, we saw some challenges in April due to limits on availability of some of our most popular model lines (GLC, CLA and GLA) during model changeover," said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of MBUSA. "That said, we are looking for another record year."

Mercedes-Benz volume leaders in April included the C-Class, GLE and E-Class (including the CLS) model lines. The C-Class took the lead at 7,821, followed by the GLE sales of 4,468. The E-Class rounded out the top three with 4,059 units sold.

Mercedes-AMG high-performance models sold 3,130 units in April, with a total of 11,469 units sold year-to-date (up 48.3%).

Separately, Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (MBCPO) models recorded sales of 9,874 vehicles in April, a decrease of -1.8% when compared to the same month last year (10,054). On a year-to-date basis, MBCPO sold 40,352 vehicles, and increase of 2.5% over 2016 (39,357).

Still #1 selling luxury brand, but the GLC's sales surprise me.  Not only is it down it gets outsold by the dated and more expensive GLE.  GLC with all 3 engines and the coupe online now should do a little better I think.  Their sedans are holding on when most are disappearing.
