will finally be getting a small B-Class
car to sell in the next couple of years. As expected
for several months now, DaimlerChrysler has finally signed an agreement with Chinese car-maker Chery Automotive. A production model based on the design of the Dodge
Hornet concept shown at the 2006 Geneva Auto Show
will be assembled by Chery in China and exported to markets including the United States. Full details of the agreement are expected to be released within the next month. Hopefully they will get this car to market soon with a nice little diesel
engine under the hood. Mercedes
has a suitable engine in the A-Class that would be a perfect match.
