Below is a quote from a Bloomberg article.

Mercedes CEO Zetsche admitting capacity cannot meet demand.


Sales Surge
“The new vehicles bring younger customers to our showroom,” said the Mercedes salesman from Dresden. “There are a lot more young people especially on the weekends when there’s no direct sales pressure and they can take a closer look.”
New styling and a broader lineup led to a 65 percent surge in compact-car sales to 227,700 vehicles through August. Daimler started the compact car push two years ago with a new generation B-Class followed by the launch of a completely re-designed A-Class hatchback last year. Half of the new A-Class buyers haven’t owned a Mercedes before, the company said. Zetsche said this week that Mercedes doesn’t have enough capacity to meet global demand for its cars.
