GCBC did add MB Sprinter van sales to MB Passanger Vehicles sales figures. 274,134 + 20,929 = 295,063 (which is indeed 13,603 vehicles more than BMW branded vehicles sold in USA in 2012).
While other media & even MBUSA themselves DO NOT include
Sprinter sales into MB PV sales figures.
Check the MBUSA press release & sales chart: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...185567602.html
It includes a category named "TOTAL" for MB Passenger Vehicles sales, and a category named "GRAND TOTAL" for MBUSA Combined Total Sales (incl. Sprinter van & smart vehicles).
