Mercedes-Benz has just reached a historical monthly sales record of heavy trucks in the Brazilian truck market. In May, the brand sold 1,010 units of these vehicles and reached a new sales record of heavy trucks. 

“Brasil is one of the most important markets for Mercedes-Benz trucks. Here we do not only have a long tradition in producing commercial vehicles, we are also the untouched leader in the Brasilian heavy duty truck market. The growing acceptance of the Mercedes-Benz Axor heavy trucks by the customers contributes to this position, and is reflected in the growth of sales of recent years.”, says Philipp Schiemer, Sales Vice-President at Mercedes-Benz do Brasil.

Accumulated from January to May of this year, Mercedes-Benz registered sales of more than 4,300 heavy trucks, which is a 52% growth compared to the same period of last year. The brand, thus, maintains the leadership in the heavy market, with an approximate 27,5 % market share, confirming the position conquered in 2007.
