Mercedes-Benz Canada and its national dealer network announced Q3 2020 sales results.
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.
