April 8, 2020 GMT

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 8, 2020--

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported Q1 sales of 67,746 Mercedes-Benz models. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz Vans recorded Q1 sales of 7,520, bringing MBUSA to a grand total of 75,266 vehicles for the quarter, a decrease of 4.3% over the comparable period last year. MBUSA got off to a strong start in 2020, bolstered by growing demand for our comprehensive lineup of new and recently refreshed SUVs. However, disruptions to our dealership network caused by the COVID-19 pandemic combined to negatively impact our results during the final weeks of the quarter.
