Luxury car maker posts 16% rise in MidEast sales

Luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz has reported 16 percent growth in sales in the Middle East and Levant.

The automotive giant said in a statement that it has seen 10 consecutive months of double digit regional growth, with year to date sales up 16 percent on 2011.

It said regional distributors in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar had also witnessed best ever July sales.

The statement added that SUV sales increased 25 percent in July over July 2011, led by 50 percent month on month growth from the newly launched M-Class.

Frank Bernthaler, director, sales and marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Middle East & Levant said: "The unprecedented success witnessed in 2012 so far both regionally and in our country markets is very encouraging as we aim for a best ever year.

"With yet more new launches of exciting models planned, we are confident that we are on track towards reaching our goal of a regional record for the brand."

He added that sales are likely to be further boosted by the recent launch of the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster and the new-look GLK later this year.
