Mercedes-Benz CEO Eckhard Cordes was the source of the news that came as a surprise to no one. The decision came in January (before or after they showed the vehicle in Detroit?) because the car company will not be able to price the vehicle to make a profit. Once again everyone can blame a weak dollar trading at $1.30 against the euro. Of course the company leaves open the possibility the B-Class could make it stateside at anytime since it is engineered for American drivers.
