Posted by: Jim Henry on May 7, 2008

Mercedes-Benz (DAI) sold 119,000 passenger cars worldwide in April, including Mercedes-Benz, Smart and Maybach.
That was 22% higher than the year-ago month, thanks in part to the redesigned C-Class, launched last fall. Year-to-date through April, passenger-car sales were 437,700 worldwide, up 14%, the company said.
In the United States, sales of the Mercedes-Benz brand in April were 20,288, down 3%; year-to-date sales were 77,960, up 1.3%. In the U.S. market, Smart is distributed separately by Penske Automotive Group, Bloomfield Hills, Mich. Smart sales in April were 2,683; year-to-date, 6,159. U.S. Smart sales began in February.
