Mercedes has no plans to expand its lineup
In an interview with TheCarConnection, Mercedes declared that they have "no plans" to expand a lineup that has expanded almost exponentially over the last two decades. "We’re going to make the product lineup we have work."
Mercedes models will adopt optional diesel powertrains. Last year they sold 6900 diesel-powered vehicles last year. "That’s not huge," especially when considering diesels accounted for roughly three of every four Mercedes sold in the U.S. in the mid-1980s, but the new chief of MBUSA expects that with the launch of the automaker’s new super-clean Bluetec diesel technology, demand will grow significantly in the States.
