First of all, Toyota had announced that it’s increasing manufacturing outputs by 20% for 2012. Then this week, Mercedes announced its intention to increase its own output by 13%. This comes on the heels of record sales for the German manufacturer, and despite the general economic uncertainties that have curbed consumer spending somewhat. Undoubtedly, this confidence in being able to move such an increase in output stems from the fact that Mercedes has done well in new markets such as China and India…. Continue Reading »
