KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 21): Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) recorded sales of 2,623 commercial vehicles in 2015, which is 5.5% more than a year earlier.

The producer of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles and FUSO trucks, MBM, delivered to its customers 193 commercial vehicles and 2,430 trucks in the year under review.

In a statement, MBM vice president for commercial vehicles Albert Yee said the group concluded 2015 on a high note as it managed to secure several fleet deals with long standing customers.

"Amidst challenging market conditions, MBM commercial vehicles has increased sales, market share, launched a new truck series, and simultaneously achieved significant milestones at our Pekan production plant," Yee said.

MBM, which recorded a 56% increase in passenger vehicles sales for 2015, also extended its FUSO product portfolio in 2015, with the launch of new variants, such as the FM and FN series, with new features such as the automatic breaking system.

MBM commercial vehicles also recorded the production of its 25,000th unit in its production plant in Pekan, Pahang, in October 2015.
