The brand achieved a considerable number of sales during the ceremonious festive season, which was the highest ever in the quarter (3871 units). This could perhaps be contributed to the launch of three new models during the period – the Mercedes Benz G 350d, V-Class Elite, and the GLC facelift, which could have been a catalyst for the uplifted sales.
