Mercedes-Benz is one of the world’s iconic luxury car brands.

But now Mercedes risks coming into conflict with Joe Biden.

That’s because Mercedes-Benz made Joe Biden’s life a living hell with this game-changing decision.

Mercedes-Benz is the last car manufacturer to pull back on electric vehicles

Joe Biden wants to ban gas-powered cars in the name of combating climate change.

Forcing Americans to drive less by mandating they buy expensive and inefficient Bidenmobiles is a foundational principle of the Green New Deal.

But like every other socialist pipedream, this scheme ran up against the reality that the laws of economics are ironclad.

Supply and demand still rule the day.

And liberals are finding out no one wants to but these junk electric vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz Chief Executive Officer Ola Källenius was the latest auto executive to admit his company’s electric vehicle initiative was a disaster.

“The transformation might take longer than expected,” Källenius told shareholders.

Källenius added that he expects the company will produce gas-powered cars “well into the 2030s.”

Mercedes-Benz will keep making gas-powered cars for the same reason John Dillinger said he robbed banks – that’s where the money is.

“For car manufacturers, larger vehicles with combustion engines under the hood still command the biggest profits, with sportscar makers Ferrari NV and Porsche AG among those boasting the highest returns,” Bloomberg reports.

A massive shift for Mercedes-Benz

Källenius was singing a different tune three years ago.

Back then Källenius and the company were all-in on electric vehicles.

“The EV shift is picking up speed — especially in the luxury segment, where Mercedes-Benz belongs,” Källenius declared in a July 2021 press release.

Källenius claimed gas-powered cars would go the way of the dodo by 2029.

“The tipping point is getting closer and we will be ready as markets switch to electric-only by the end of this decade. This step marks a profound reallocation of capital,” Källenius added.

“By managing this faster transformation while safeguarding our profitability targets, we will ensure the enduring success of Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to our highly qualified and motivated workforce, I am convinced that we will be successful in this exciting new era,” Källenius continued.

Chevy, Ford, and even Hertz rental company all joined Mercedes in realizing the prospect of all electric cars was a pipe dream.

No matter how many of these inefficient Bidenmobiles the manufacturers produced, it most definitely wasn’t a case of “if you build it, they will come.”

Bidenmoblies cost on average around $53,000.

That’s about $5,000 more expensive than the average gas-powered car.

The higher price combined with the fact that drivers have to make sure there are multiple charging stations along the route they plan to travel make these clunkers unattractive to car buyers.
