Record breaking start in the first quarter of the year for Mercedes-Benz Vans UK sales

After another record breaking start to the year, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK have reason to celebrate as van registrations increase from the same period as in 2016.

In particular, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd recorded an overall 18% increase in vehicle registrations during the first quarter of 2017(Jan-Mar).

Mercedes-Benz Vans revealed this is their second-ever biggest registration month in the UK, with the brands’ greatest ever recording of March registrations increasing to 6,182 vehicles as well, marking a 12% increase on last year.

Overall, the amount of registrations for the brand has grown by 14.5% alone this year, with Vito volume seeing an increase of 44% during the first quarter, whereas the Citan has grown by only 7% in the small van market, reporting a decrease of 13% so far this year.

Steve Bridge, managing director, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, said: “I always say that as a brand, we have the right products, people and processes to keep our customers’ businesses moving, so to have these outstanding figures across the board so far this year, proves that to be the case.

“Of course, behind all of these astonishing numbers is a fantastic team at head office and across our nationwide Dealer network, so I’d once again like to thank all the hard working women and men across our brand for the contribution they make not only to our business, but to our customers’ businesses too.”
