Mercedes-Benz Vans sold 44,130 vehicles in 2019 – a 14.4% increase on the previous year, representing another record broken for the manufacturer. In fact, in 2019, the Brand secured record monthly sales performances in January through to August consecutively, and achieved record Vito, Sprinter chassis, and X-Class sales.
This result positioned Mercedes-Benz in position three in the overall van market (which itself was up just 4.2% overall on 2018), with the Sprinter in the top position for the large van market in the UK.
The Brand also lent more money than ever before to businesses requiring a van to keep them moving, and succeeded in lending over £400m, which is +£44m on the previous best ever year.
Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, added: “We are so proud to keep Britain’s businesses moving and record figures like this confirm that we have got it right; not just the right product, but the right services, processes and of course, people. In fact, our network of people, both at head office and across our nationwide Dealer network, work hard to bring our Brand values to life, and I couldn’t be more proud of them for achieving this record-breaking result and supporting the fantastic van community in all that they do.”
