Mercedes increases sales of its plug-in cars in the second quarter

In the second quarter, in general terms, better figures have been achieved in registrations of electric and electrified vehicles than those obtained during the first three months of the year 2022. Mercedes has been one of the brands that has improved its figures on these cars, since managed to register a total of 65,400 plug-in vehicles from April to Junewhich represents an improvement of 2% compared to the first quarter.

During the second quarter, Mercedes plug-in hybrids continued to lead the company’s electrified sales, although pure electrics represented the biggest increase in registrations compared to the first period of the year. The 100% electric vehicles obtained a total of 23,500 awards, which is almost double what was established in the first quarter (increase of 90 percent).

Mercedes registered 23,500 pure electric units in the second quarter of 2022

However, global sales of the German brand decreased by 16 percent in the second quarter, with a total of 490,000 units awarded. The decrease in vehicle sales is attributed by the brand to the significant mobility restrictions to which the Chinese population has been subjected due to a new outbreak of COVID-19, as well as the shortage of components and the increase in prices of obtaining raw materials. However, according to what they say from Mercedes, sales of electric, electrified and high-end models have not seen their sales decline.

With the sales figures obtained by Mercedes in general computation, as well as the registrations made in plug-in vehicles (plug-in hybrids and pure electric), it is obtained that the electrified models represent 13.3 percent of the total registrations made by the German company , of which 4.8 percent come from fully electric vehicles. From Mercedes they hope that this will be a good year in terms of sales of plug-in vehicles, since they hope to multiply the purchases of the past 2021.

For its part, Mercedes-Benz Vans, the van division of the German firm, delivered a total of 3,100 eSprinter and eVito units throughout the second quarter of 2022, which represented 97 percent more awards than at the beginning of the year. The Mercedes EQV is included in the sales of electric models of Mercedes-Benz Cars, which was made with a total of 800 units during the period between the month of April and June.
