Mercedes Benz Sells 2 Millionth SUV

Don't head to the optometrist just yet. If the parking lot outside the California Pizza Kitchen and P.F. Chang's seems particularly crowded with Mercedes-Benz SUVs, you're probably seeing just fine.

The company had some good news to release with the new year, they managed to surpass the 2 million SUVs sales mark. According to a press release, the company enjoyed significant growth in SUV sales in 2011 thanks to the U.S. and China. SUV sales were up 24.3 percent compared to 2010 and additionally the company saw a 23.5 percent sales spike in November.

"With the launch of our first sport utility vehicle the G‑Class more than 30 years ago, we entered a segment in which we are now very successful with a total of five models. The SUVs today are an important pillar of Mercedes-Benz's growth and have regularly posted a new sales record in every month since July 2010," Joachim Schmidt, Mercedes' head of sales and marketing, said.

While it may have taken the company 30 years to reach that number, luxury SUVs have really only been making a splash since the late 90′s with the introduction of the ML-Class. It may be easy to forget the rocky debut they had, but had some serous struggles making them a success. Questionable assembly and poor reliability in the not-so-distant past might still have some buyers feeling wary.
