Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz UK commented: ‘To be the Number One premium brand in the UK in February is a great achievement and testament to the hard work and commitment of my colleagues throughout the Retailer network and at Mercedes-Benz UK. Now we’ll be devoting even more energy to achieving it again, as this is a result we’ll be aiming to repeat as the year goes on. With exciting new models, including the CLA and New E-Class on the verge of arriving in the UK, we are in a fantastic position for the future.’
