Mercedes to Increase Global Output 13% in 2012
After Toyota recently made a Hail Marry announcement saying it wants sales to be boosted 20 percent next year, we now have news from the luxury world, as inside sources have told AutoNews that Mercedes is eying a 13 percent output increase in 2012 to over 1,417,400 vehicles.
That’s despite the fact that 2011 will surely be a new sales record for the Germany automaker. "Mercedes-Benz is going on the attack," Daimler board member for manufacturing and procurement Wolfgang Bernhard said in the release. "We are securing our path to the top by extensively investing in the expansion of our high-performance production network."
