WOW, that is Ugly at MB, clearly their sales are not taking off even with new models. Really surprised that they have not killed off some models by now even though they say they are going too.

Up 4.8% for the month, down 0.5% for the year in a market that is shrinking.  

SLC is a dead car, current GLA is probably out of production and new CLA just hit dealers in September, the SUVs are on fire, and they have GLB and EQ C coming to next year. I wish more people bought the sedans, but people are just leaving sedans sadly.

Final number is 4.5% for the whole company and a rare up when the last big portion of the year it has been negative.

If you want to include Vans, they are down 0.1% for the year and ahead of BMW.  But I don't like to compare MB total vs BMW since it isn't fair to throw Vans in.  

Infiniti, Lexus and Acura are suffering huge losses, when GM and Ford numbers come out tomorrow, I bet Lincoln and Cadillac are as well.   If Mercedes even ends the year even that is good when most of the luxury market is down double digits.

GLE and GLS could finish up for the year, they were hurt by model changeover and no inventory.  Look at the GLE now with full inventory.  GLS and CLA are just hitting dealers now.   Sedans are down every where, 3,00 E-class is great when Lexus sold 350 GS’s.  And Mercedes has EQ C, EQ B, GLB and Maybach SUV next year since all people want are more SUVs.

Good thing you explained that. It seems like Mercedes is the only with older models on the way out, model changeovers, or any other number of excuses you have given Mercedes whenever things are less than stellar for them. 
 

And if all people want are more SUVs, why are Mercedes SUVs showing a decline (save for the G Class)?

I explained why GLE and GLS were down for the year, model change, notice the GLE has had increased the past few months.

GLE up 27% this month, yes people want their SUV’s.

I just notice.. they're not bothering to report SMART sales anymore. 

That's because they can be recorded much faster on one hand lol.

"Explain" it all you want. All you can reasonably determine is that folks want the GLE and not much else. Fact.

Cadillac up was a surprise to me because all the sedans are down and XT5 is down 15%.  I didn’t think Escalade would be up with new competition in the segment, and XT4 is making up for lost ground elsewhere.
