Mercedes-Benz China sales are down 3.9% in October, a decline which Daimler attributed to the “very strong” sales from October 2011. Mercedes-Benz sold 15.900 vehicles in China last month.
“With the full availability of the high volume B-Class that was only recently introduced in China, the company expects an added growth impetus in the coming months,” Daimler said, adding it also was working to reorganise the sales operations in China.
The Mercedes B-Class compact tourer was launched in China in August. According to Daimler, the sportier A-Class compact hatchback is expected to debut in China in the middle of next year.
