There is no doubt about the fact that the AMG division is doing a wonderful job in getting the best out of every Mercedes-Benz model it gets its hands on. And guess what: AMG sales are also going through the roof.
Mercedes-Benz AMG division is heading fast to a new record in sales: 4o,ooo units in 2017. This number is double the sales volume AMG recorded in 2012 and project a very optimistic future for Mercedes-Benz.
At the same time, this record manages to overpass Mercedes-Benz AMG’s official target – 30.000 units in 2017 – projected by former AMG boss Ola Kallenius more then a year ago.
The models responsible for this peak in sales are the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG. All the aforementioned models are based on the front and all-wheel drive compact MFA platform developed by Mercedes-Benz. However, the new AMG GT might be the right boost for an even more dramatic future increase in sales.
How is that possible? Well, as we all know, AMG was already entered series production for the superstar GT coupe. Therefore, AMG GT will be a permanent part of the range, unlike the SLS supercar, which was designed as a limited edition run.
“We are in a growth strategy and AMG, as the performance member of the Mercedes-Benz family, will play a stronger role in the future and we have few more ideas up our sleeve to make that story even bigger,” said Kallenius for motoring.com.
Since we mentioned the AMG GT as Mercedes-Benz’s spearhead in terms of AMG division sales, it is worth noted that in the near future we might see a AMG GT Convertible, a Black Series version and even a GT3 racer. But let’s take one step at a time.
