Ernst Lieb, CEO & President, Mercedes-Benz USA at 2011 NAIAS on Driving the Nation

Ernst Lieb, CEO & President of Mercedes-Benz USA,  talked to me at 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI.

It may look like a design sculpture but look at the grille, says Lieb, you’ll see the future of Mercedes-Benz.

What is Mercedes-Benz bringing out in electric, hybrids, diesel, diesel-hybrids, fuel-cell in the next couple years?

Do Mercedes buyers care about what’s under the hood, or is the push from regulations?
