Did you know you can now buy a Mercedes pickup in Thailand

Recommended Posts

But how does it perform on a dirt-track with pot-holes the size of small cities ?

Just one more brand that drivers of any nationality can kill themselves ( and thousands of others) in.   Thais aren't the only people to have accidents.

Its that Thais just have a higher percentage kill rate proving that the lower the IQ the higher the accident rates. But this thread is not about how badly Thais drive it is about the M-B pick-up truck seen in Thailand.  It is a grey import as it is not officially on sale in Thailand.  At 4 million baht I think I would be looking at many other vehicles rather than an agricultural truck. Then of course you have the issue that M-B franchised dealers do not undertake M-B approved servicing on grey imported vehicles since 2012

"Its that Thais just have a higher percentage kill rate proving that the lower the IQ the higher the accident rates."

That's not proved at all!  Where are the IQ records that you seem to know about of those killed on the road here? 

 

"But this thread is not about how badly Thais drive..."

I didn't say it was, neither did I initiate that subject.

I think it is common knowledge that LOS has an abysmal road death rate. We all know LOS can do no wrong in your eyes but perhaps you really are going a bit over the top..

I'm not disputing the death statistics (can't anyone on this forum read?), I was asking about the IQ/death correlation remark.

Who on God's earth would pay over 100,000 GBP for a pick up truck?

 There was a company in Northern England that would take the innards out of MGB's and put them in Marina pickup bodies. Once upon a time I was going to get one and put a US style camper on the back.

The one to have, the V6 top of the range is 48,500 quid, the basic one with the Nissan engine is 38,000+ quid...

The list price in Australia is $85k (1.7M baht) and even with healthy discounts, Benz are struggling to sell them.  Don't like their chances in Thailand.

Even if that is true, and it has not been confirmed, Mercedes is well known for continuing to produce parts for models that have been out of production for many decades.

MG is the company to keep an eye on. Their all electric SUV should be available this month and their pickup next month....

No need to keep an eye on. They are so ugly one cannot miss seeing them when on the expressway.
