This to me suggests that sales are not what MB has anticipated. Probably doesn't help that they've decided to keep it restricted to Europe for the time being. Two day tests drives are something I'd like to see adopted on a larger scale. Does it actually come with those lightning decals?
I agree that the details are a bit tacky, especially on what's supposed to be a premium luxury truck. Haven't been able to determine whether or not this is indeed on this variant or if it was just photoshopped for marketing purposes.
It's a first generation model, so there are probably people waiting on cheaper secondhand models. I also think the fact that the X Class has borrowed so much equipment from the Navara has actually worked against it.
