In May 2020, Mercedes-Benz will discontinue production of the X-Class pickup truck, which lasted only two and a half years on the assembly line.
Yes, the pickup will finally be discontinued. This is with reference to its own source reports Auto Motor und Sport. Recall that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class went into stock at the end of 2017. It was originally conceived as a global model, but was found to be in demand in a limited number of markets, for example, in South Africa and South Africa. They wanted to produce a pickup truck in Argentina, but later Daimler decided that its price does not coincide too much with the price expectations of customers in South America.
In 2018, the X-Class sold 16.7 thousand cars, last year the sales of the model fell to 15.3 thousand units. The pickup, sharing the main components and assemblies with Renault Alaskan and Nissan Navara, turned out to be too expensive compared to its “platform” for the mass market.
