Mercedes-Benz Vans recorded a 4% increase in global sales for Q3 of 2022, selling almost 100,000 vans, despite the ongoing global challenges concerning the supply and logistics of parts.
Privately positioned vans made the strongest contribution, with a 32% rise in sales which is 17,200 units for this period from July to September. With the V-Class and the fully electric MPV EQV, sales of these two models in the mid-segment increased by 21% to 15,700 units, according to a report.
The completely new T-Class, which has been available since summer this year, and the commercially positioned Citan, were able to convince numerous customers in the small van segment with an 86% increase.
The continued high demand for motorhomes still has a positive effect on the sales of Marco Polo and all of its derivatives.
Another highlight of these recent figures from Mercedes-Benz vans is that the company grew sales of eVans for the first nine months of 2022 to around 3,300 units.
“With around 100,000 units in the third quarter, we have achieved robust sales and are thus slightly above the prior-year level,” said Mercedes-Benz Sales Head Klaus Rehkugler.
“We have succeeded in expanding our share of the market in strategically important regions such as North America and achieved our best quarter ever to date in Asia.”
