Daimler to stop building Mercedes sedans in the US & Mexico after Q2 loss

Daimler announced that it will stop building Mercedes-Benz sedans in US & Mexico as it posted a loss of $1.91bn in Q2. The company will halt output of its Benz C-Class sedan in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, leaving the plant producing only SUVs. It will also stop production of a variant of compact Benz A-Class in Aguascalientes, Mexico, to instead focus on the GLB, a newer, higher-margin SUV model.

Yeah must have been where they are made not a certain virus. The reality is they'd rather make them all where the labor is cheapest. I hope Trump throws a tariff on them when they leave

You mean I can stop paying $350 for oil changes, $1050 for additional maintenance 8 months later and not use premium gas? Dear Mercedes, you're not what you used to be...buh bye.

Cool, I guess this means more job flow, production growth to Tesla and other major US manufacturers who aren't abt skipping town when times get rough.
