Smart, S class help drive big April gain for Mercedes
Automotive News China | 2017/5/9

Mercedes-Benz's China sales rose 35 percent year on year to 47,627 vehicles in April on strong demand for Smart city cars.

The automaker's sales are growing at both ends of the sales spectrum, with the entry-level Smart brand, and in the executive segment with the S-class flagship sedan. Last month, Mercedes introduced the redesigned S class at the Shanghai auto show.

For the first four months, Mercedes' China deliveries increased nearly 37 percent to 192,574 units.

The German luxury brand has maintained a blistering pace of sales growth since 2013, when it shook up its China management ranks and consolidated distribution.

In January, Mercedes sales in China finally caught up with Audi AG -- China's most popular luxury brand -- and BMW AG. Audi and BMW have not released China sales figures for April.
