Smart en Mercedes krijgen klappen in de VS

Smart en Mercedes krijgen klappen in de VS
Mercedes en Smart verkochten dit jaar 33% minder wagens dan vorig jaar in de Verenigde Staten.

Mercedes verkocht 30% minder wagens, wat te begrijpen is aangezien het crisis is, en dan vooral in Amerika. Wat er weliswaar merkwaardig is, is dat Smart 56% minder verkocht wordt. Blijkbaar lopen de Amerikanen dus nog steeds niet warm voor kleine, milieuvriendelijke wagentjes.
