It was a record month. MBUSA has never sold more vehicles in a month than it did in February 2018. In total 24,760 passenger vehicles were sold and 27.894 including Mercedes-Benz Vans and the smart brand. Overall sales are up 0.4% from 2017 with passenger vehicle sales virtually flat, which is not bad considering 2017 was also a spectacular sales year. The result is especially strong considering that total February vehicle sales in the US were down 2.4% from 2017.

Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of MBUSA noted that overall the year was off to a very successful start and predicted that 2018 would continue to be a successful year. He also pointed to the GLC and S-Class as assisting in setting the February sales record.

Mercedes-AMG brand sold 2,469 units which is a small increase over the January sales number of 2,454. The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned program sold 9,750 vehicles, slightly down from Feb 2017.
