    According to Mercedes, Q3 2021 has witnessed a 99 percent growth in sales compared to the same period last year. This strong sales performance in Q3 has also translated to the German carmaker crossing its entire 2020 calendar year sales number in just the first three quarters of 2021.

    Total sales in 2021 so far has amount to 8,958 units, with 3,193 units being sold in Q1, 1,664 units in Q2 (due to pandemic-related slowdown), and 4,101 units in Q3. The split between sedan and SUV sales till Q3 of this year has been quite even as well. Mercedes India claims that sales could have been 20 percent higher had business been under normal conditions.

    In terms of individual model sales, the E-Class LWB  has remained the highest selling model in this quarter as well. The next highest selling model is the GLC SUV.
