No More Subcompact Models for Mercedes-Benz

The introduction of Mercedes-Benz of its compact models has gained it a lot of profit.

Due to the huge success of the Mercedes-Benz CLA models, the German company’s plant in Kecksmet, Hungary even added a third shift to answer to the overwhelming demand of its compact segment.

2021 Mercedes-Benz U-Class Concept Proposed by a Design Student

Since Daimler killed its ultra-luxury brand Maybach, there’s no longer a car that could be considered more prestigious than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. That means customers who want a car more elite than the S-Class will just have to settle with other brands like BMW and Volkswagen for the Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The solution that Daimler has to cater to the upper echelon of the luxury car segment is its S-Class Maybach Edition, which has a longer wheelbase than the S-Class long wheelbase version. Then, there’s  also the more enormous Pullman variant. Aside from these, the parent of Mercedes-Benz no longer has a specific brand or class that would only answer… Continue Reading »

Is Daimler spinning off its Mercedes-Benz dealerships?

In a bid to improve its profitability, Daimler could sell some of its Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Germany and keeping the rest of the dealerships it owns in a separate entity. The Daimler management board reportedly isn’t satisfied with the ‘maximum margin of 2 percent’, as stated by a representative of the IG Metall labor group, which plans to hold a rally on the 28th of April due to the breaking down of negotiations regarding the preservation of jobs for those on the retail side of the Mercedes-Benz dealerships. The rally will be held at the Stuttgart headquarters of Daimler AG. Of course, it’s only natural to expect this new approach… Continue Reading »
