They were up this month, down 6% for the year, but still the #1 selling luxury car.  E-class up 9% is a good sign, maybe some people do still want sedans.   Dated GLE/GLS that are probably out of production hurt there, the new GLE isn't at dealers yet.

Look at the G-wagen!!!

Right- Statistically flat month/month (+0.6%), so that breaks the decline streak. Sort of.
I'm surprised that mathmatically the Y-t-Y is only down 6%. The 2nd half of this year has felt oppressive dark.
MB will do their usual all-out sales push for Dec so I expect the number next month to be up slightly.
