They did do that, but that's not what the CWW pictures is of. - The Official Mercedes-Benz Fan Blog

Yes, this tax is not cross border so it is applied against all products of the same type regardless of country origin (within EC). Government can still give incentives to companies within their own jurisdiction.

In Germany many companies still give middle management a company car which is becoming rare in the U.S.
