Mercedes-Benz will soon no longer produce A and B classes. The company will focus on luxury cars in the future.
According to a media report, the car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz intends to remove its A-Class from the range in the coming years. The “Handelsblatt” reported on Monday, citing corporate circles, that the A-Class should be completely discontinued around 2025. There will be no successor for the variant as a hatchback or as an extended sedan.
According to the report, the Stuttgart carmaker is also phasing out its B-Class. Accordingly, both model series are considered unprofitable. According to the “Handelsblatt”, the changes will lead to higher entry-level prices for a Mercedes, from currently under 30,000 euros to around 40,000 euros.
