DAIMLER, AG claims that part of the total figure for the co.’s auto unit sales for March is actual numbers from slow selling Maybach. Trouble is Stuttgart’s still mum on the marque’s hard figures – the division’s sales are lumped in with Mercedes. When it finally be revealed just what kinda bread Maybach brings to the table? Only Dr. Z knows for sure.
From Daimler, AG
In March, Mercedes-Benz Cars delivered 110,400 (March 2008: 131,500) Mercedes-Benz, AMG, smart, and Maybach brand vehicles to customers worldwide (minus 16 percent). Mercedes-Benz sold 98,500 (March 2008: 119,400) passenger cars in March (minus 18 percent). Despite the continuing difficult situation on the automotive markets, and the E-Class model changeover, sales of Mercedes-Benz Cars in March were up from the previous month’s total. The division also posted an increase in incoming orders compared to the numbers for January and February of this year.
