Mercedes Will Abandon New Jersey For Atlanta

It was a cold winter last year, so I don't particularly blame Mercedes for uprooting itself from chilly New Jersey towards balmier Atlanta, Georgia as we're reportedly going to find out is happening today. I'd just like to point out we called this way back in November.

Why would Mercedes leave New Jersey? I'm sure Atlanta and Georgia threw a ton of money at them to make the move. Plus, Atlanta is starting to become a hub of German automakers with Porsche also based there. It also puts Mercedes closer to its manufacturing base.

We'll apparently learn more later today.
