2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and 2015 GLA-Class

How Mercedes will top the successful CLA launch in 2014

The all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class has been an overwhelming success for the brand. Mercedes will top it with the new 2015 GLA-Class.

If you think the all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class was a one and done launch for the brand, there is more coming in 2014 that could even top the successful four-door coupe launch. Mercedes factories are running at full capacity try to keep up with demand for the CLA and Mercedes dealers have been told to expect supplies to be tight for the first six month’s of 2014. What will Mercedes do to top the CLA in 2014?

Mercedes has a global strategy and they are just getting started. Here is what Mercedes-Benz President and CEO USA Steve Cannon said in a Christmas message that reveals their key strategy over the next seven years. Cannon said, “And you are going to want to keep your eyes on us, because we are not taking our foot off the gas. Over a seven year period, we are bringing 30 new models to market."

Good launch in USA but crap in other markets as USA has taken all the supply compounded by Mercedes stuffing up production, running out of key components, bad management so good luck Mercedes with your plans, get the cla manufacturing right first
Love the GLA. Have CLA45 AMG on order for one year and expect delivery in ~2 months. If GLA45 AMG was available, it might have gone the other way - and still might if the Mrs. feels strongly enough about it!
