The Mercedes-Benz increased sales of cars 9 % in Russia

In 2008 CJSC Mercedes-Benz RUS, the division of Mercedes-Benz Cars, sold 16,764 cars of Mercedes-Benz, AMG and Maybach on the Russian market. It is up 9 % from 2007 when 15,330 cars were sold.
Mercedes-Benz RUS acknowledges that the situation in economy corrected the sales results of the second half of 2008. The analysts of AUTOSTAT remark that because of reduction of the premium-class segment, realization of S-class sedans decreased in general. The leader of the Mercedes-Benz model line in 2007 - sedan S-class - in 2008 moved to the second place and 3,006 units were sold. As a result C-class models became the Mercedes-Benz best seller in 2008 which sales increased 28 % to 3,875 cars. This growth may be explained by the start of sales of the Mercedes-Benz C-class wagon at the beginning of 2008. But the E-class cars demonstrated 5-percent drop, moving to the third line in the sales rating of Mercedes-Benz models with the figure of 2,668 cars.
Despite the competition in the SUV segment, sales of cars M-, R-, GL- and G-class increased 22 percent to 4,824 units that partially is caused by diesel versions of cars of this class which appeared on the Russian market. 448 cars of the new compact Mercedes-Benz GLK SUV, which Russian premiere took place within the Moscow International Auto show, were sold from the moment of sales beginning.
It is necessary to notice that due to modernization of the Mercedes-Benz B-class models, their sales in Russia grew up 22 % to 864 units.
