RE: M-B production plants
I remember seeing that plant building ML's for the European market a few years ago. The same plant was also building Jeep Grand Cherokee's for the European market. I remember seeing a picture with one model going down one line and the other models going down another line. I think the picture and accompanying article was in the Wall Street Journal.
The article talked about how there had been real opposition from the Mercedes side of the house on even allowing the contract plant to produce the two vehicles in the same plant. It is a "flexible" production plant.
