PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE
VP of Product Group Compact Cars,
Joerg Prigl's hard work on Mercedes' compact lineup is boosting the brand's sales and winning new customers. In July, global sales of the A class, B class and CLA doubled to 28,787. Daimler says that about half of all A-class buyers come from other brands. The compact line will get another boost following the arrival of the GLA crossover, which debuts at the Frankfurt auto show this month.
