Benz Korea cuts parts prices amid strong local sales

Feb 02,2018
Mercedes-Benz Korea said Thursday it will lower the prices of 6,200 major vehicle parts by an average of 8.7 percent this year to help reduce its customers’ repair and maintenance costs.

The move is part of the German carmaker’s continuous efforts to cut the prices of “consumable” parts, Mercedes-Benz Korea said in a statement.

“Mercedes-Benz has reduced parts prices since 2010 to help customers better use genuine parts at more reasonable prices,” Kim Jee-seop, vice president in charge of service and parts at the company, said in the statement.

Mercedes-Benz has sold a total of 68,861 vehicles in Korea, which is the sixth-biggest market for the German carmaker.

The automaker’s sales in Korea were up 22 percent from 56,343 units a year earlier, according to the Korea Automobile Importers & Distributors Association.
