Mercedes Benz India retailed 7893 new cars in the January-December 2020 period. Though, sales were hugely affected for at least a couple of months due to the COVID-19 pandemic but the brand bounced back sharply from Q3 2020 onwards. The 'comeback' was possible due to a combination of several factors like positive customer sentiment, festive season sales, unlocking of markets and stabilization of businesses. It registered a growth of 40 percent in Q4 by selling 2886 units as compared to the preceding quarter's 2058 units. Now, under the ‘Reimagining Excellence’ motto for 2021, Mercedes will shift its focus towards new physi-digital experience that drives the brand even closer to the customers, differentiated and best-in-class retail experience and long-term sustainability initiatives.


Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “2020 remained an unprecedented year for the industry and we are glad to make a strong sales recovery for us and our dealers. We are particularly satisfied with the strong Q4 performance registering a 40% growth over Q3, and continuing the sales momentum from the preceding quarters. Despite facing prolonged market headwinds, Mercedes-Benz pursued its product strategy, introduced 10 new products that received overwhelming customer response. Mercedes-Benz accomplished significant milestones in form of introducing the first ever luxury EV in India, the EQC, and rolling out the first ‘Made in India AMG’, GLC 43 Coupe, underlining the resilience we all displayed.”
