This performance gives us confidence that our strategy is in the right path and our patrons prefer our products and service. The unprecedented demand for the Long Wheelbase E-Class Sedan in particular has contributed immensely to our sales success. All our products across segments were highly appreciated by the customers resulting in a steady growth across the NGCs, sedans, SUVs and the AMG cars.”
