Beside MB USA trying to keep image of the brand as luxury cars, there is some politics involved.
I run into Canadian who is snowbirding in California and would be happy to sell me his 60 mpg Smart car with diesel engine.
The cars are US approved and lot of them on the roads, but US doesn't want 60 mpg diesels here, so I would not be able to cut the red tape.
