Thomas Weber who sits on Daimlers Board of Management has said that there could be room for up to 8 compact MFA based Mercedes models in the future.
Currently Mercedes only offers the A, B, CLA and GLA based on the MFA platform, but we could see big changes for the next generation. “If there is room for more in this segment in the future, why not?” Weber asked. “Not in this lifecycle, [maybe] in the next generation. Since we can demonstrate with our current platform with a huge variety of five completely different vehicles, and it’s clear from an engineering point of view that we could do more – seven, eight, why not?” he added.
So what could Mercedes have in mind? A true 2 door coupe could be useful to fight cars like BMW's 2 Series and Audi's TT, convertible as well.
