Daimler AG’s CEO, Dieter Zetsche has offered his shareholders general annual meeting an exclusive preview of a new SUV with a sleek fastback design. The unveiling was part of his announcement of an unprecedented product offensive against Mercedes-Benz strongest competitors.
The image shown by Zetsche has no clear reference to its size but the understanding is that the model shown will fit in the upmost market segment and will be ready to contrast the new Audi Q7 and BMW 7X.
Mr Zetsche told the shareholders audience: «we see a great potential for a Mercedes that combines the features of a sports car with those of a SUV”.
Mercedes-Benz is said to be unveiled a “Concept” of the new SUV at the Beijing Motor Show on April 20th.
