DCX: Mercedes-Benz Sales Up, Smart Sales in Toilet

This image was lost some time after publication.

Oh, the quandaries that must be spinnin' in the heads of the DCXers at the moment. M-B managed to bootstrap its sales up by 16%, helped by the redesigned M and S-Classes, as well as the intro of the B and R-Class machines. But all ain't rosy. Smart is wallowing in the mire, with only 7,700 sales for the quarter. We love the fact that in the Reuters article, the teensy-car marque's referred to as the company's "loss-making Smart brand" because, you know, making a loss is always better than just hemorhagging cash.
