(Reuters) – Daimler AG Major Federal government Officer Dieter Zetsche claimed the German automaker would add a new compact SUV to its lineup later on this calendar calendar year.
Zetsche at an bash in Shanghai on Monday unveiled what he discovered as a strategy for a compact Mercedes GLB with seating for seven and rugged off-road tires.
Zetsche claimed the GLB would not remain a strategy for really prolonged, and promised the unveiling of a output design by this summertime time.
In China, Mercedes has declared 2019 the “year of the SUV”, reflecting the raising acceptance of this type of cars in the world’s best automobile marketplace.
