The BlueEFFICIENCY badge has been showing up on many of our 2012 models and it has generated a lot of interest. In general, BlueEFFICIENCY is anything that Mercedes-Benz does to be more fuel efficient or environmentlly friendly. The diesel vehicles have been badged this way for a few years and many of the 2012 models earned the badge as a result of the new direct injected engines.
In short – Blue is the new Green!
There are so many safety features in our vehicles that it is hard to go over them all at one time! This new video from Mercedes-Benz.tv gives a short overview of some of the newer systems that you might have heard mentioned in our commercials.
Our Toys for Tots donation was picked up yesterday. It was another successful year of filling our E-Class cabriolet “sled” to the brim with gifts!

Just in time for holiday travel…(this kind of thing actually happens at my house!)
For 2011 Mercedes-Benz USA held a “Beyond the Walkaround” Competition for salespeople to test our product knowledge, presentation skills and customer interactions. I competed at the Market Level and Regional Level to advance to the National Finals held in November in New York City at Mercedes-Benz of Manhattan. The four finalists, one each from the Northeast, Southern, Central and Western Regions presented the ML-Class to the Exectutive Management Team of Mercedes-Benz USA as well as our Learning & Performance training team. I placed second at the National Level this year and was presented with this unique trophy by President & CEO Herbert Werner and VP of Sales Mike Slagter. It was an honor to represent Atlanta Classic Cars and the Southern Region at the National Level. It was a great experience and I will certainly put the product knowledge and sales skills to use! Thank you to everyone who organized this great competition.
Mercedes-Benz is offering current owners the chance to win a 2 year C250 lease and a trip to Germany! All you have to do is visit the Official Sweepstakes site, submit your VIN and you are entered to win! The winner will be announced in January. Good Luck!
