Muscat, December 4, 2011
Zawawi Trading Company (ZTC), the authorized distributor for Mercedes-Benz in Oman, has posted a rise of 42 per cent in sales of the German automaker’s vehicles during the third quarter of the year on the same period in 2010.
ZTC launched new models in 2011 such as the C-Class facelift, the sporty C-Coupe and the SLK Roadster, contributing to positive sales, a statement said.
Mercedes-Benz’ luxury SUV sales were up 22 per cent in the first 10 months of the year, while the fashionable new CLS was spectacularly launched aboard a super yacht off the coast of Oman in May.
In addition, the executive E-Class sedan and new CGI engine version of the world’s best selling luxury sedan, the S-Class, have also come to the fore, driven mainly by the strong product offering of the Business Edition and AMG Sports Package options available.
Craig Hardie, CEO – Automotive, Zawawi Trading Company, said: “We are delighted to see the tremendous popularity of Mercedes-Benz in Oman as we continue to improve our customer experience, and head into the final quarter of Mercedes-Benz’ 125th anniversary year.”
“The shared ambition of Zawawi and Mercedes-Benz to provide our clients the promise of the best or nothing has further catalysed our sales success, while supporting our long-term goal to achieve profitable growth and higher customer satisfaction.”
Across the region, Mercedes-Benz’ October sales were up 26 per cent year on year showing the best performance since 2008.
Mercedes-Benz is outperforming in Qatar and Kuwait markets, while Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Abu Dhabi retain their strong market position with consistent sales performance, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
