Mercedes Posts Strong Q1 Earnings Driven By EV Growth

Mercedes-Benz released its earnings for the first quarter on Friday, beating its figures for the same period in 2022. The German luxury automaker’s revenue was primarily boosted by its rise in electric vehicle sales.

The company posted global revenue of 37.5 billion euros ($41.27 billion), an 8% rise from 2022. The company’s global EBIT hit 5.5 billion euros, or $6.05 billion; a year-on-year growth of 5%. The company’s operating profit margin declined marginally from 16.4% a year ago to 14.8%.

Among the main drivers of Mercedes-Benz’s rise in revenue was its electric vehicle business. The company almost doubled its EV sales compared to Q1 of last year, with EVs accounting for 10% of its total sales.

Recent EV sales are good news for Mercedez-Benz, especially given the company’s aim to go fully electric by 2030. In preparation to meet this target, the luxury automaker will roll out electric versions of each of its models by 2025.
