The S-Class which launched in June 2018 but also achieved the same sales level of the first half of 2017.

In Vietnam, the C-Class has been the best-selling sedan winning customers’ heart. In the first 6 months, there were more than 700 C-Class units delivered to Vietnamese customers, equivalent to 120 cars per month on average. Since the end of 2017 till now, MBV has continuously provided valuable options for the C-Class in order to enhance customer experience, such as the 9G-TRONIC transmission (on 3 variants), Burmester® surround speakers (on the C 200), Camera 360 (on the C 250) and sporty 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels (on the C 300 AMG). The C-Class has owned the most attractive options at reasonable pricing in its segment, making it more approachable for customers from mass segments to own a Mercedes-Benz.

The all-new E-Class (W213) also reach 1.000 units per year milestone in 2017.

This is also a net record of the whole premium segment. The GLC takes around 90% shares of its segment. Within 1 month from its launch, the GLC 200 has rapidly become the best-selling variant of the GLC. One third of customers picked the GLC 200 as the first car in their life. Out of two thirds of customers who chose the GLC 200 to be their next car, more than half were customers who shifted from mass brands. This proves the attraction of the GLC in general and the GLC 200 in particular, not only in premium segment but also in mass ones.
