"Sales" figures, or "unit sales", published here every month and quarterly in the interim reports or the annual report are wholesale figures, i.e. the vehicles were sold to independent dealers and the Mercedes-Benz Group (or a local Mercedes-Benz Group subsidiary) generated revenue from this sale. Wholesale sales generate revenue because the vehicles with these deliveries leave the scope of consolidation of the Mercedes-Benz Group. When the Mercedes-Benz Group sells a product directly to the end customer, the sale is both a wholesale sale and a retail sale. From the point of view of the profitability analysis to be booked at Mercedes-Benz, it is relevant how many vehicles the Mercedes-Benz Group has sold to dealers and under what conditions, but not how many vehicles the dealers have sold to end customers and under what conditions.

"Retail sales” figures, which the company publishes quarterly, are sales to end customers, i.e. sales from an independent dealer to an end customer. They do not directly generate revenue for the Mercedes-Benz Group. These sales figures are comparable to the retail sales figures reported by our competitors.
