The detailed monthly sales for November, however, remained undisclosed by the company.

The 2017 sales record of the German luxury carmaker is largely backed by swift sales of E-Class and sport utility vehicle models, according to market data.

The combined sales of E-Class model here reached 28,429 units during the period between January and October this year, according to data compiled by the Korea Automobile Importers and Distributors Association.

Korea is Mercedes-Benz’s fifth-biggest market in terms of combined sales, and the second-largest in Asia.
