Mercedes-Benz Vans has set a new record with an 8% increase in sales for the first half of 2017 with 190,200 vehicles. The company had now seen growth for 5 consecutive years with all model series contributing to the latest sales record; Sprinter up 1%, Vito up 14%, Citan up 5%.
Mercedes-Benz Vans project a ‘significant increase’ in 2017 full year of sales. As part of the “Mercedes-Benz Vans goes global“ business unit strategy, the division last year launched the V-Class and the Vito also in China, the world’s largest automotive market. This provides additional boosts in demand. In addition, as the world’s first premium manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz Vans will enter the segment of mid-size pickups with the X-Class at year’s end.
