Mercedes promises 16 new models and alternatives by 2011
A 16% increase in sales during this type of economical situation can be considered a huge success and it seems that Mercedes really wants to take advantage of that increase. How will they take advantage of such an increase? The company has promised 16 new or upgraded models scheduled to be unveiled between this year and next year.
Next to them, Mercedes will also offer a new generation of V6 and V8 gasoline engines, dubbed BlueDIRECT. These new engines will offer direct injection and turbocharging technology and will also offer an improvement of 24% in fuel consumption. Europe will be seeing these BlueDIRECT models in the Fall, but US dates have not been released yet.
So it seems that Mercedes really wants to apply the new slogan "The best or nothing."
