Mercedes-Benz Korea sells its 100,000th E-class vehicleThe 10th generation E-class luxury sedan from Mercedes-Benz has become the first import car model to reach 100,000 units in sales in Korea.
Mercedes-Benz Korea announced in a statement Monday that it delivered the 100,000th unit of the E-class model on July 19, just over three years since its debut to the local market in June 2016.

According to the Korea Automobile Importers & Distributors Association, while foreign automakers saw their combined vehicle sales contract 22 percent during the first six months of this year, Mercedes-Benz remained in top place, selling 6,800 units of the E-300 during the same period.
In celebrating the milestone, Mercedes-Benz Korea is running a marketing campaign of giving prizes via a lucky draw to those who purchased E-class sedans in Korea.
