Mercedes-Benz USA today reported March sales of 15,602 vehicles, a decline of 25%. The volume leaders for the month were the C, E, and GLK-Class with sales of 5,008, 1,978, and 2,598 respectively. On a year-to-date basis, the company sold 40,234 (56,341 last year) new vehicles, a decrease of 29% over the comparable period last year.

smart USA recorded 1,746 sales in March 2009. This figure represents a 1% increase over March 2008, and a 42% increase for the first quarter 2009. There are currently 75 smart centers operating in 35 states. Given the current economic conditions, this decrease in sales is not a big surprise, especially when you take into account the price of a Mercedes-Benz compared to its competition. What is surprising is that the E-Class is still selling well, even though, the new model has been announced.
