Referencing comments allegedly made during a June dealer webinar hosted by Mercedes-Benz USA CEO Nicholas Speeks, the outlet did not reveal a timeline for the move, or specify which models would be cut.

2018-2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter recalled for brake fix

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for 5279 examples of its VS30 Sprinter van with model years from 2018 to 2020 (MY18-MY20) due to faulty brakes. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the brake hoses may contact the rear part of the fender liner of the front axle while driving the vehicle, causing anything from chafe marks to worn-out brake hoses, resulting in leaking brake fluid.

Mercedes-Benz and BMW end autonomous driving partnership

Rival German car makers Mercedes-Benz and BMW have paused their partnership to jointly-develop autonomous driving technology. The alliance – announced in 2019 – plotted to develop ‘next-generation’ autonomous driving (up to 'fully-autonomous' Level 4), with the first cars fitted with the technology slated for launch in 2024. However, citing exceeding costs and adverse economic conditions, the brands announced they would pause their partnership indefinitely.
