Since the model’s market launch in Europe in April 2013, Mercedes-Benz has handed over more than 100,000 CLA to customers all over the world.
”100,000 CLA and altogether 800,000 new compact models show very clearly that our model initiative in the compact segment is definitely hitting the mark”, said Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes-Benz Cars responsible for Marketing & Sales. ”Month after month, these models are the most important drivers of our growth worldwide.”
Altogether, sales of the new generation of compact cars with the three-pointed star have reached more than 800,000 units. Since the beginning of this year alone these have included more than 250,000 A-, B-, GLA- and CLA-Class vehicles.
Since the model’s introduction almost a year ago, some 27,000 CLA have been sold in the USA. It is the first time, a model is available for under 30,000 US-Dollar there. The CLA is Mercedes-Benz’s first compact-segment car to be on sale in the US.
Outside the US, the most significant sales region for the CLA is Western Europe, with a share of around 30 percent. The biggest markets in Europe are Germany and Great Britain.
The CLA has been built since January 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét, Hungary.
