[FRANKFURT] Daimler, maker of Mercedes-Benz and Smart-branded cars, said deliveries rose 11.4 per cent in 2014, to a record 1,739,854 cars, thanks to a 30 per cent sales jump in China and 25 per cent higher registrations of Mercedes compact cars.
For Mercedes, it marks the fourth year of record sales in a row, thanks to demand for its expanded range of compact cars including the CLA coupe, the GLA compact sports utility vehicle, as well as the new C-Class and S-Class limousines.
The Mercedes-Benz brand posted record deliveries in every month of 2014, the company said. Sales of its compact vehicle range grew by 25 per cent to 463,152 vehicles of the A-, B-, CLA- and GLA-Class.
