Mercedes-Benz Vans sold 98 900 vehicles worldwide during the first quarter of 2023. This is no small feat.
The fact that its share of the total van sales has increased from 3.6% to 22%, is certainly remarkable.
The commercial component of its van sales over the period January to March 2023 increased by 13%. Sales of vans for private use increased by 5%.
Nadia Trimmel, the president of Mercedes-Benz Vans SA, said, “We are glad to have contributed to this outstanding achievement by the Mercedes-Benz Vans group. I trust that this first quarter has set us up for great success throughout 2023. To South Africa and our fellow markets that form part of the Rest of the World (RoW) category, increasing our total sales by almost 9% is no small feat. May we keep it up throughout the remainder of 2023.”
Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz Vans SA announced that the much-anticipated eSprinter would be available in South Africa by 2024.
