BERLIN, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Strong demand from Chinese market boosts the sales of German carmaker Mercedes-Benz to reach a new record in the first seven months of 2018, a statement of the Stuttgart-based company showed on Monday.

A total of 392,780 units have been delivered to Chinese customers from January to July 2018, representing a year-on-year increase of 15.1 percent.

Alone in July, Mercedes-Benz sold 52,616 cars in China, up by 8.3 compared to the same month in 2017, according to the statement.

Worldwide, the company delivered 1,356,350 vehicles in the first seven months, which is an increase of 2.3 percent and a new record.

"Never before have so many customers taken delivery of their new Mercedes-Benz in the first seven months of a year," said Britta Seeger, member of the board of management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz cars marketing and sales.

"Since the market launch of the C-Class Saloon and Estate, more than 9.5 million of these models have already been sold. Since July, our new models of the C-Class family have been in the showrooms of the European dealerships, with whom we intend to continue the success story of our bestselling series," Seeger added.
