Attaining sustainable and increased sales hasn’t been a last ditch attempt with Mercedes-Benz India having registered 31% growth through the Q1-Q3 2013 when compared to the same 9 months in 2012.
By the end of September 2013, the star automaker had sold 6461 luxury units when compared to 4938 units sold in Jan-Sep 2012. Without a doubt this has been the best year in terms of sales for MB India with 2013 sales volumes being the highest number of cars sold by the company here ever.

Having sold 7,138 vehicles in 2012, MB India will end the year with close to 9,300 units sold.

Through 2013, Mercedes-Benz India did launch 8 vehicles.
