Hello from Germany!

May we open a new forum for the monthly sales of the smart ED? It's interesting to compare figures!

2011 sales:

0 cars in January
0 cars in February
0 cars in March
0 cars in April
8 cars in May
0 cars in June
************ transition to Mercedes-Benz USA
1 cars in July
1 cars in August
0 cars in September
17 cars in October
101 cars in November
182 cars in December
310 total for 2011

2012 sales:

0 cars in January
2 cars in February
0 cars in March
0 cars in April

EDIT: But I don't understand CYTD in march (32?), april (32?) and may (87?) 2011. So we've a total of 388 for 2011?!

Regards

What I don't understand, wasn't for lease only? I thought sales were supposed to start with the new 2013 model....

I believe they are leasing the EDs to themselves and counting them as sales.

Doesn't MB own that short term rent and drive Co. now operating in a few US citys? A2Jack

Yep, this horse has been beaten to death already. Doesn't really matter what our opinions are, the car industry counts leases and fleet sales all as "sales" so it is what it is. :)

Those would be Gen II EDs; my guess is prospective buyers know the Gen III electric drive is on the way and are waiting for it. :)
:bigthumbup: Spot on JW!

With Gen III said to be in the pipeline can't imagine the discount (should be factory incentives to move the dead stock?) you might get on a "yesterday's technology" Gen II . . .
