Turkey, fastest growing European market for Mercedes Benz

With a growth of 35% in the first half of 2011, Turkey has become Europe’s fastest growing country in German luxury carmaker Mercedes’s automobile sales. The company aims to sell a total of around 35,000 cars this year, including 15,000 passenger cars, and it has also ambitious plans for the next two-to-three years. According to an official of the company, Turkey has the potential for the sales of over 60,000 cars within a couple of years, on the back of Daimler’s recently developed new small diesel engine and small light commercial vehicles. .
