“With new cars with pioneering design that inspire our customers and with particularly strong growth, locally and globally, we have climbed to the top of the premium segment. And we are accelerating further – with new technologies, products and services. We are delighted that our dealers have risen to the new challenges and ever-changing trends and demanding market conditions. We will continue to find new avenues to motivate our extensive dealer network to meet our customers’ varied demands,” added Seidler.
“The incentive to host the Mercedes-Benz dealer network in Berlin is to provide a historic, whilst at the same time a futuristic view of new beginnings. The dealer principals will be exposed to various new ventures in business from “Berlin Start-Ups” who reveal Berlin at its most progressive and innovative, disrupting all conventions of modern business. Although Mercedes-Benz dealerships provides the best and most lucrative opportunities already, we must continue to experience new and forward thinking ways of undertaking and managing our business. Whilst taking in the sights and sounds of Berlin with “bike mobility”, the dealers will also visit the Mercedes-Benz dealership in Berlin and the Mercedes-Benz Gallery to experience the world of Mercedes-Benz in a foreign context. These unique visits will conceptualize a new and creative way in which we can successfully do business, and this will revitalize our passionate dealers,” concluded Seidler.
The model portfolio of Mercedes-Benz – with the sub-brands Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach and smart – is bigger and more diverse than ever before. The plug-in-hybrid initiative is underway with three new models and Mercedes-Benz offers the widest range in the premium segment. Mercedes-Benz globally is now the premium brand with the strongest unit sales; in 2016, the brand, for the first time, sold more than two million cars, an increase of over eleven percent over 2015.
