In terms of year on year growth, sales were up by 4.3% with 26,908 cars sold in 2011 alone. When comparing the sales of last October, there was a considerable sales increase of 9.2%.
Tim A. Reuss the President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz in Canada said that passenger car and luxury light truck popularity has increased, allowing the company to announce bigger profits. He said “This month we recorded strong overall sales growth for both Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and luxury light trucks, allowing us to continue to surpass previously established sales thresholds and report another record-breaking month for the three-pointed star in Canada,”
This statement was clearly represented with the official statistics. 1,317 passenger cars were delivered in October and 1,297 luxury light trucks were delivered.
He continued to mention how the company’s reputation and vehicles are just getting better and better within the country. He was quoted to have said “We also celebrated additional successes in October by earning two prestigious awards from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C 350 4MATIC Sedan was named the Best New Luxury Car, and the Mercedes-Benz S 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC earned the Best New Prestige Car further substantiating the undeniable appeal of our fascinating vehicles.”
