The entry into force of new requirements for the average level of carbon dioxide emissions will seriously affect Daimler, say the heads of dealerships of the German brand. They expect a 75 percent reduction in stocks of Mercedes-AMG cars, as well as a ban on the sale of models with three-liter engines. Bernstein analyst Max Warburton called the killing of AMG “a disaster for the profitability of the entire concern.”
In the mass line of Mercedes-Benz, shakes are also expected. The company will try to shift the focus of customers from powerful compact and mid-sized models to their less powerful versions. For example, a GLE crossover may fall under the blow, in the engine range of which there are three-liter “sixes”, or top modifications of the E-Class.
