The global slowdown in the car market failed to hit the Indian car market especially the luxury car segment. This fiscal Mercedes-Benz India has recorded a high sales jump of nearly 56% that accounts for more than 3000 cars. A sales figure of 3000 in just a span of nine months is just amazing.
The company reports that such a heavy jump in the car sales has been marked for the first time in the history of Mercedes in India. They feel that such an impressive performance is commendable in the otherwise unpredictable market.
Dr. Wilfried Aulbur, Managing Director and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India, commented that the company is confident to mark still higher growth in the coming years with a desire to grow in the ultra dynamic market.
According to the industry reports, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has sold 1450 units between the months of January 2008 to September 2008, with the growth of 135%. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class reflects a growth of 64% with 524 units sold by the end of third quarter. The evergreen Mercedes-Benz E-Class continues to win success with a sales figure of 921 between the months of January to September this year.
The company has also introduced two innovative engine technologies christened as E230 and E220 CDI.
With this, Sanjiv Sahajwala, Director- Sales and Marketing of Mercedes-Benz India, said that the luxury car collection from Mercedes-Benz has high potential and scope in the Indian market.
