The Mercedes sales report for August was released earlier this week… it looks like August was a good month, in fact, a record setting month for new Mercedes-Benz sales. The official Press Release from MBUSA is below.

New cars at Sears Imports were strong, as the 2012 model year car supply is dwindling, the 2013 models are arriving. Deals on C, E and GLK class vehicles were especially good in August (and continue to be good in September) as large incentives are available on these cars, especially for current Mercedes-Benz Financial customers… whether you’re in a lease or purchase contract, deals on the last of the 2012s are incredible!

New 2013 GLK and C class models are arriving at dealerships everyday, we just got a shipment of new 2013 cars today, including a facelifted 2013 G550! (see official August Sales Report from Mercedes-Benz USA below).

mercedes sales figures

The Mercedes-Benz sales numbers report for October 2011 looks awfully good, sales were up 28.2% for the month and up 12% for the year 2011.This sales surge was felt all the way down the food chain, as, on a personal note, October 2011 was my personal best month in my almost 4 year career in the car business! I should thank all of my customers for that… it was a great October 2011.

The 24 hour news channels talk nothing but doom and gloom for the economy and consumer confidence, but I’m seeing all sorts of small business owners, executives and professionals from all types of industries coming in to take advantage of all the current new Mercedes-Benz deals out there. These people are smart, they’re not just writing checks for big cars because they can, they’re taking advantage of current incentives and programs, historically low finance rates, they’re negotiating good deals because they see VALUE in the current new car market. They are also taking advantage of a historically high trade in prices for their old vehicles due to a strong used car market.

Maybe if FOX News and CNN would report some good news for a change people might feel better about what’s happening in the world. Okay… enough of that… below is the official MBUSA press release (edited a bit for length) and the breakdown of sales by model for October 2011.
