USA: Mercedes to suspend sales of almost all V8 cars in 2022

Sales of as many as 17 models powered by the brand's 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine will be suspended.

Mercedes-Benz USA is said to be suspending the sales of almost every V8-powered model in its line-up for 2022.

According to a media report, sales of as many as 17 models powered by the brand's 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine will be suspended. These include 13 AMG 63 models, 3 regular Benz 550 and 580 trims and one Maybach trim as well.

Reports suggest that the reason for the suspension in sales is said to be because of a number of factors, including but not limited to supply chain issues in the US market.

It further mentions that customers who have already ordered the MY2022 versions of the affected models will also most likely face cancellation of their vehicle booking.

Mercedes-Benz dealers in the USA are said to have confirmed the update, although the carmaker is yet to make an official announcement regarding the same.
