Mercedes-Benz USA just released the figures of its 2016 sales. The company boasted that the numbers showed a new sales record in the United States market.

According to the Online Newsroom of MB USA, the company was able to finish 2016 displaying a higher annual volume of vehicles sold in the US compared to its 2015 figures. A grand total of 380,750 units of its autos were sold in the year that just ended. Included in the data were the 34,304 vans and 6,211 smart cars it sold within the period.

Mercedes noted though that the sales figures it revealed for 2016 was only 0.1% higher than its preceding year. Therefore, the change was almost flat on a year-to-date basis.
