- Luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz Malaysia held its quarterly media briefing yesterday evening to proudly announce a big 13 % increased
Luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz Malaysia held its quarterly media briefing yesterday evening to proudly announce a big 13 percent increase in sales over the same period last year, mainly due to a record-breaking retail month in March.
“It has been an incredibly successful start to 2015 for Mercedes-Benz Malaysia. The robust sales of both Hybrid models (the E300 BlueTEC Hybrid and S400L Hybrid) is a clear testament that we are significantly invested in helping Malaysia achieve its Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) aspirations. The growth we have had and the investments we have made thus far have certainly paved the way for future success.” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia President and Chief Executive Officer Roland Folger.
According to Folger, the uptrend is because of the success of the new E300 BlueTEC Hybrid, which sold 638 units since it made its Malaysian debut in January until March. The S400L Hybrid also contributed to the success with 270 units sold. Sales of its New Generation Compact Cars (NGCC), which comprises of the A-Class, CLA-Class and GLA-Class, also rose up, registering a total sales of 418 units, representing a 33 per cent increase from 2014.
“With the CLS400 recently launched in March and a series of other models lined up for the rest of 2015, we believe that we have firmly cemented our position as the leading premium luxury brand for passenger cars in Malaysia. We are incredibly proud to be contributing to the tremendous global sales, which is a record for Mercedes-Benz as a whole. We are confident that as the Mercedes-Benz brand and our presence in Malaysia continues to strengthen, so too will our relationship with our customers,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Vice-President Mark Raine.
