Report: Mercedes-Benz slashes production of the S-Class to keep in line with low-demand

Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will be cutting production of its S-Class sedan to keep in line with lower demand.

“Workers manufacturing the S class will be reassigned to the C-class assembly line during this period,” the company said on Wednesday, in sign that the malaise in Europe’s car market is starting to spread to premium brands.

Mercedes-Benz’s Sindelfingen factory will cut down to one shift until the next-generation model shows up next year. In the meantime, the remaining shift will be reassigned to produce the C-Class.

Sales of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class have fallen by 27 percent in the past 8 months to 5,277 units.

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class was recently previewed by the Aesthetics S sculpture – pictured in the gallery above.
