It looks like the Germans are on a roll this year. In my previous post, 2010 is set to become Audiís best sales year in the companyís history. Itís German rival, Mercedes Benz, is on its way to a record year in production. The German premium brand will produce 1.2 million vehicles in 2010, beating its previous best year of 1.19 million units assembled in 2008.

"Our production was running at high speed, especially in the second half," said Wolfgang Bernhard, head of Mercedes-Benz operations, in a statement. Mercedes has seen high demand for its E-Class and S-Class models this year. However, production figures does not necessary equate to sales figures. For example, during the economic downturn in 2009, Sales went down by 14 percent whereas production was reduced by a deeper 23 percent. Mercedes must have drawn down on its inventory level back then.

Nonetheless, 2010 has been a good year for Mercedes Benz. For the first 11 months of 2010, its sales figure was 1.06 million, although its arch rival, BMW, sold marginally more at 1.11 million units during the same period. The German automakers have benefited from the booming market in China and the healthy rebound in Europe and North America.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
