Mercedes-Benz Canada continues positive momentum with Q3 sales results
Mercedes-Benz Canada and its national dealer network today announced Q3 2020 sales results. The company continued to show strength under unique circumstances, with all 59 dealerships maintaining strict public health protocols to protect the health and safety of customers and employees. In Q3 2020, Mercedes-Benz Canada achieved sales of 10,891 passenger vehicles and vans (-8.8% compared to Q3 2019).
Of the total sales, 9,420 represented passenger cars and luxury light trucks (-9.7% compared to Q3 2019). While a decrease compared to Q3 2019, the strength of sales throughout the quarter helped significantly reduce the YoY gap. In Q3 2020, Mercedes-Benz Canada retailed 5,689 SUVs and 3,731 passenger cars. The main volume-drivers in Q3 2020 included the GLC SUV and GLE SUV (ranking numbers one and two respectively), followed by the C-Class sedan. Other standout performances came from passenger cars including the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan (+87.7% in Q3 2020 compared to Q3 2019) and second generation Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe (+290.4% in Q3 2020 compared to Q3 2019). Canadians also continue to show positive enthusiasm for the sleek, spacious and luxurious Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV (+99.2% in Q3 2020 compared to Q3 2019).
Despite the uniquely challenging COVID-19 environment, the Pre-Owned division again delivered a record performance in Q3 2020. Not only did overall pre-owned volume increase (4,819 pre-owned units retailed, +4.9% compared to Q3 2019), Mercedes-Benz Canada also proudly achieved records in every month of Q3 2020 (July, August, September) in both Certified Pre-Owned sales (4,119 CPO retailed, +10.3% compared to Q3 2019) as well as CPO penetration rate (+4.2% compared to Q3 2019).
