AutoComplete: Mercedes considers killing American C-Class production
Here is what's making news on Road Show.
Mercedes is reportedly mulling the idea of pulling C-Class production from the US entirely to make room for more hot-selling SUV models.
The change could come as early as 2020 when new electric EQ models are due to start production at Benz's Alabama factory.
I guess this means that if you want to buy yourself a C-class and experience all the luxury that entails but still want to hold on to the pride that you, finger quotes, bought American, then act fast.
Citroen just released images of a new concept car.
And you all know what that means It's time to get weird.
The latest concept is called the 19 underscore 19.
And its extreme looking to say the least.
First it's got massive wheels pushed to the extreme corners of the vehicle and then wrapped in close fitting, but not quite, To the body blue fenders.
Inside, it's a weird living room on wheels with bungee cords everywhere but unlike many other quote, unquote autonomous concepts, this one still has a steering wheel which means it could, in theory, be driven by humans.
Good job, France, never stop doing you.
Mercedes is getting real serious about its fleet going carbon neutral, and as such it's come up with an initiative to act as a road map on how to get there.
The initiative is called Ambition 2039, and while we can only assume that it's named after Dr. Z's Favorite Madonna tour.
It outlines the brand's plans for going extra super green by rethinking its manufacturing facilities, offering more electric vehicles and designing cars that can be more easily and completely recycled.
Good work guys.
Now make it happen.
