It’s no secret that sedan and coupe sales are having a hard time in the United States, which has prompted several automakers to kill off several of their car models. Well it looks like we can soon add Mercedes-Benz to that list.

2019 Mercedes-AMG C43

Automotive News is reporting that Mercedes-Benz is going to reduce its car lineup in the U.S. soon, which will likely see the death of its coupe and convertible lineup, which includes the C-Class coupe and convertible, plus the E-Class and S-Class coupes and convertibles. The CLS coupe may also be on the chopping block and even one of the GT models.

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t confirmed the report, but Automotive News also says that in June Mercedes-Benz USA CEO Nicholas Speeks told dealers that seven car models are going to be axed.

Stay tuned.
