Mercedes-Benz Cars delivered 1,182,724 passenger cars (+25.1%) worldwide in the first half of 2021.

In China, the brand set two new records: highest deliveries in a second quarter (219,059 units, +5.8%) and in a first half (441,579 units, +27.6%).

Double-digit Q2 sales growth was achieved in Germany (+26.3%) and the US (+38.6%).

“The worldwide supply shortage of certain semiconductor components affected global deliveries to customers in Q2, especially in June. The shortage is expected to continue to impact the upcoming two quarters in terms of sales,” the automaker said in a statement.

Deliveries of plug-in hybrids and all-electric cars quadrupled in the six months, reaching 121,500 units (+305.0%). The xEVs made up 10.3% of total Mercedes-Benz Cars sales in the first half of 2021. Around 39,000 all-electric vehicles were delivered from January to June (+291.4%), including 19,000 units (+469.4%) of the EQA, EQC and EQV models.
