FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Sales of Daimler's Mercedes-Benz luxury brand climbed 5.7 pct to 120,346 vehicles in November, an all-time high for that month, as rising U.S. volumes fully offset a decline in China.

Larger rivals Audi and BMW have been increasing their vehicle sales in China at double-digit rates, by comparison.
