We’re one of two elite Mercedes-Benz dealerships that are part of the Baker Motor Company. Founded in 1988 with the Mercedes-Benz brand as its original franchise, the Baker Motor team have become the go-to people for these peerless autos. We’ve also learned exactly what Mercedes-Benz drivers demand and deserve over those 27 years, and it shows. The Baker Motor Company was named Best Place to Buy a Car for 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2016 that honor went to Mercedes-Benz of Mount Pleasant alone. If you’d like to find out why our customers are so consistently impressed with the service and attention they receive, feel free to browse through the reviews that we’ve been left on Google+, Facebook, and Yelp.
From our rewarding outdoor deck customer lounge right through to our top of the line service center, the 25,000 square foot Mount Pleasant campus has been enhanced and optimized to provide everything you could wish for, from finding a Mercedes-Benz branded watch or wallet in our accessories boutique to picking up a new SLK Roadster from our sales floor. We even provide complimentary car washes, Saturday service, complimentary pick-up and delivery service, and a fleet of Mercedes-Benz service loaners.
The only things you’ll never find are furrowed brows or frowning faces. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been named one of Automotive News ‘100 Best Dealerships to Work For’.

Tommy Baker was born in Charleston, South Carolina, close to the banks of the Wando and Cooper Rivers and the historic Charleston peninsula. He attended Moultrie High School, and after distinguishing himself on the baseball fields and the dance floors of the Lowcountry, graduated in 1964. Motivated by a desire to serve his country and the patriotism of many past generations of Charlestonians, Tommy enlisted in the Marine Corps shortly after graduation. His service took him far from Charleston, to Okinawa in Japan and finally back home in 1968 where he enrolled at The Citadel, South Carolina’s preeminent Military College.
After spending 25 years as an automobile dealer across the South, Tommy felt it was time to return to his first love, Charleston. Combining his extensive experience with acute business savvy and his one-of-a-kind amicable personality, Tommy founded Baker Motor Company in 1988. After starting out on Morrison Drive in Downtown Charleston with a single dealership, Tommy has since expanded Baker Motor Company to now include various luxury brands, and a luxury Pre-Owned Center on its main campus on Savannah Highway.
Baker has always prioritized giving back to the Charleston community. He has served as past chair of the MUSC Children’s Hospital, the College of Charleston School of Business, YEScarolina and the Free Enterprise Foundation, a research institution that works in harmony with The Citadel, The College of Charleston and the Medical University. In 2008, Baker Motor Company received the Award for Outstanding Corporation from the Association of Fundraising Professionals South Carolina Lowcountry Chapter. This award honors a corporation or its corporate foundation that demonstrates outstanding commitment through financial support and through encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and community involvement.
Out of all the awards and accolades Baker Motor Company has received over the years, Mr. Baker is most proud of being named one of Automotive News’ Top 100 Best Dealerships to Work For in 2013, 2014, and 2015. In 2015, the dealership was named the #1 dealership in the USA and Canada.
