One year after the launch in all core markets Mercedes-Benz has already delivered over 100,000 S-Class models worldwide. Never before have so many vehicles of the luxury sedan been delivered to customers in the first year of full availability. To date, this constitutes the most successful market launch of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Soon after being put on sale in Germany at the end of July 2013, the S-Class hit the showrooms in 2 of the largest markets for this car USA and China. Mercedes-Benz delivers almost every second S-Class to customers in China, one quarter of all S-Classes is sold in the USA and every one in ten sedans goes to a customer in Germany.
The sales figure of 1,00,000 S-Class models in just one year is the ultimate proof: the combination of high-class quality, exemplary efficiency and a host of innovative assistance and safety systems delights our customers and meets their highest demands. We extended our range of luxury cars at the end of September by including two fascinating and promising models in the guise of the new S-Class coupe and the S500 Plug-in Hybrid, says Ola Kallenius, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars responsible for Marketing & Sales.
