FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Daimler (DAIGn.DE) said global sales of its Mercedes-Benz auto brand rose to their highest-ever level in November, growing by 10.9 percent to 133,441 cars thanks to demand for its new E-Class model and a boost of sales in China and North America.
In a statement on Thursday, Stuttgart-based Daimler said year-to-date Mercedes-Benz sales increased 10.7 percent to a record 1.32 million autos, powered by growth in all major regions including Europe.
"We have already achieved last year's total sales volume and we are the fastest-growing premium brand since the beginning of the year," said Daimler management board member Ola Kaellenius.
