Mercedes van sales grow for seventh year
Mercedes-Benz Vans UK had a record 36,952 new van registrations in 2016, the seventh consecutive year of growth for the brand.
Mercedes-Benz Vans also celebrated record sales in March (+18% year-on-year), November (+26%), as well as a 7% increase in the number of new customers choosing Mercedes-Benz Vans. Second only to Germany for LCV sales in Europe, the UK is embracing the van and setting sales records, so it’s no surprise that one particular Mercedes-Benz Vans dealer sold more than 4,000 vehicles in 2016, more than the Mercedes-Benz van sales across Ireland, Hungary, Greece and Luxembourg combined.
Steve Bridge, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK managing director, said: “Our focus to keep our customers’ businesses moving has been unrelenting this year, and it is a focus that we are very proud of; I don’t want us to be seen as another vehicle manufacturer – we are a commercial partner, working hard to support Britain’s businesses.”
“The motivation for us remains our customers, and I thank them all for their business in 2016, from the one van purchase through to the large fleet deals and the existing van operators that continue to choose our Dealer Network for their maintenance.”
