Toronto, Ontario – Mercedes-Benz has delivered its 5,000th B-Class in Canada, to Maria Zampini of Laval, Quebec. Mercedes’ entry-level hatchback was first launched here in October 2005 and has since become one of the company’s best-selling models. The B-Class is not currently sold in the U.S.
Zampini, a first-time Mercedes-Benz owner, said that she had been looking for a car that would meet a broad spectrum of needs, and found the B-Class was “the perfect solution” for her and her family.
“Our research showed that there was an enthusiastic and eager Canadian demand for an entry luxury vehicle that offered dynamic driving, spacious dimensions and great design,” says Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada. “The B-Class models have already done tremendously well all over the world; there was no doubt in my mind that it would be equally successful in Canada. The proof is before us and this is particularly evident with younger customers who have a very active lifestyle; they just love this great car.”
