DaimlerChrysler AG's Mercedes-Benz brand has recently announced the 100,000th sales milestone of the company's CLS-Class luxury 4-door coupes. Actually, more than 100,000 units of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class are already sold in markets and delivered to customers all over the world since the new Mercedes-Benz 4-door luxury coupe model was launched in 2004. Stuttgart-based automaker said the top selling markets for the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class are in Germany and in the United States.

"The CLS-Class combines the elegant design vocabulary and dynamics of a coupe with the comfort and functionality of a sedan in a completely unmatched way." said Dr. Klaus Maier, Executive Vice President Mercedes Car Group, responsible for Sales and Marketing.

"The extraordinarily positive customer response to a model that is still unique underscores Mercedes-Benz' role as a trendsetter in the development of new vehicle concepts and impressively demonstrates the success of our product strategy." he added.

In addition, in an official company press released, Mercedes-Benz reports that:
"Demand for the CLS is particularly high in the U.S., where about 27,000 units have been sold since the vehicle was introduced to the market in January 2005. The second most important market for the four-door coupe is Germany accounting for about 20 percent of global sales. The most popular engine version in Germany last year was the CLS 320 CDI, which was chosen by more than half of the customers."

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class comes with a wide range of models. These include CLS 350 CGI, CLS 500, CLS 63 AMG, CLS 320 CDI, CLS 550, and CLS 63 AMG. All models feature a sleek and luxurious body styling and impressive vehicle driving and handling performance coming from a 4-door coupe with 4-seat cabin. Mercedes-Benz offers an exclusive petrol or diesel engine for each model.
