Mercedes-Benz Dodges a Big Bullet

The judge presiding the class action lawsuit in New Jersey this tuesday has dismissed the case that Mercedes had misled their customers about their Bluetec Clean Diesel after more recent studies have found the levels of greenhouse gases coming off the exhaust.

The case was dismissed due to the plaintiffs not being able to provide evidence of such advertisements in America that would mislead them on the level of emissions from the vehicle.

 

A U.S. judge in New Jersey on Tuesday threw out a proposed class action lawsuit alleging that automaker Mercedes (DAIGn.DE) misled consumers about emissions standards in “BlueTec Clean Diesel” vehicles.

U.S. District Judge Jose Linares said the plaintiffs did not have standing to bring the case.

Plaintiffs claimed Mercedes falsely advertised the BlueTec vehicles as having lower emissions. They said that they later found that the emissions were higher than U.S. standards permitted.

The judge said the plaintiffs failed to show they actually viewed any of Mercedes’ advertisements touting the cleaner technology. He gave them leave to revise their complaint. Continue Reading

Mercedes Dominates Korean Market

Mercedes has taken the lead in imported cars in Korea, with a strong sweep taking the lead by over 5000 units sold. Previous leader Volkswagen is being left in the dust in the wake of its problematic scandal earlier this year involving its diesel models, which has caused the company to lose trust in a worldwide market which has allowed Mercedes to strike critical wounds on its German competitor.

The oldest titan of the auto industry certainly hasn’t skimped out on the quality of its exhaust and other engineering aspects that has made it the king of the market.

 

Last month, the aftermaths of the suspension of Volkswagen sales lowered sales of import cars 12% from a year before. In particular, Mercedes Benz sold close to 5,000 units of the new E Class, which propelled the German automaker one step closer to the top of the import car market in Korea in seven years.  

The Korea Automobile Importers and Distributors Association (KAIDA) announced on September 6 that the month of August saw 15,932 new import cars registered, down 12.5% from a year earlier.

This figure is up 1.3% from July. Accumulated import cars sales from January to August stood at 148,411, down 6.5% from a year earlier. Continue Reading

The Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4 has seen an amazing tune up and facelift from Masonry, a Swiss tuning company who have an apparent fondness of carbon fiber. Many of the G500’s components have been replaced with carbon fiber versions making this truck built like a bomb shelter and the look is pulled off fabulously.

This tuneup wasn’t just a makeover though, as various upgrades have given the G500 an extra 52 horsepower and 73 lb-ft of torque. The big secret to this upgrade was a fancy new Exhaust System that allowed the already powerful engine to breath better and function to its full potential.

 

Outlandish Swiss tuning company Mansory has applied its know-how to the Mercedes G500 4×4², making the standout off-roader even more conspicuous than before.

If you like carbon fibre, Mansory’s take on the G500 4×4² should be right up your alley. The firm has applied a new carbon fibre vented hood, carbon fibre headlight surrounds with LED headlights, carbon fibre fender flares and a carbon fibre roof and spoiler. There’s also carbon fibre door handles, exterior trim and taillamp covers.

Backing up the sporting looks is a lighter and louder sport exhaust system. The exhaust helps the G500 4×4²’s 4.0-litre BiTurbo V8 breath a bit better, resulting in an increase of 52hp and 73 lb-ft of torque for a total of 468hp and 522 lb-ft. Continue Reading
