E320 Cdi Wagon?

Does anybody know,why MB does not offer the Wagon with the diesel engine,only a sedan,could not get a answer from the dealer,usually the Wagon follows 1-2 years later the sedan's introduction.

Probably pure economics. MB likes pushing the 4-Matic wagons and introducing a CDI wagon would cut into their market share. The engineering involved might return on the investment with the CDI wagon sales. Just my guess...

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Daimler-Chrylser is planning on offering a E320 CDI wagon in the US sometime in 2006. I'm not sure where I read the info. though.

I also heard they will have one in 2006, once the cleaner diesel is available I bet a whole lot more diesels will be arriving from MB as well as other companies like Honda/Toyota possibly etc.....since they will be able to sell them nationwide.

I talked to a Mercedes rep about this (not the dealer). Their answer was that with our current emissions laws, they can only sell a certain number of diesels a year and the sedan pretty much fills all the available slots up. As soon as the laws get changed (2006?) they will be introducing a diesel wagon, as well as a few other models. It's just a matter of time folks.
