Mercedes-Benz Product portfolio simplification strategy follows itself, that’s why models that don’t have good sales, inevitably have to say goodbye to Mercedes production lines. So far, the S-Class Coupe, S-Class Cabriolet (opening roof) and SLC have been some of the models that have fallen victim to this strategy. Now it is reported that Mercedes-Benz plans to remove some other models from its product portfolio CLS is one of them. The strategy of styling the Mercedes-Benz product portfolio is supposed to include about 18 models out of the current 33 models.
As reported by “Car and Driver” magazine from inside sources of Mercedes-Benz, CLS is spending the last months of its life; Because this beautiful sedan will not be produced from next year.

There are rumors that the situation is not so favorable for station wagons either. Although Mercedes-Benz has not published an official report in this regard, some experts believe 2024 It will be the last year of production of the station version of the E-Class.
In addition, some reports indicate that all Mercedes-Benz station wagon models only The end of this decade They will be guests of production lines. If this is true, it should be said that the Station C-Class and CLA Shooting Brake are in their final years of life.
