Mercedes-Benz announced Thursday that deliveries in the first quarter of 2022 fell 15% to 501,600 cars "in a challenging environment primarily due to semiconductor constraints."

On the other hand, Mercedes-Benz "passenger cars" deliveries declined by 15% to 495,200 units. By region and market, North America, Europe, and Asia recorded decreases in car sales of 20%, 14%, and 12%, respectively. However, the carmaker saw deliveries of S-Class vehicles rise 67%, and sales of plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles hit 67,800 units.

"Despite geopolitical uncertainties and the semiconductor supply situation, global demand for Mercedes-Benz vehicles remains strong. However, due to the unstable political environment and continued restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the situation remains volatile," read the company's statement.
