Synopsis

Johann Jungwirth, CEO, Mercedes-Benz R & D, North America, Csaba Csere, Valvefloat Group, Mike Austin, Popular Mechanics. Topic: Mercedes R&D.

These days when it comes to automobiles, technology is everywhere. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a $12,000 Nissan Versa or a $190,000 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG…though auto experts might expect to find a little bit more in the Mercedes. But how does it get there and who decides what car gets what? Those are questions that this week’s Autoline guest deals with on a daily basis. Joining John McElroy for the entire show is Johann Jungwirth, the President & CEO of Mercedes-Benz Research and Development in North America along with our panelists the former head of Car & Driver Csaba Csere and Mike Austin of Popular Mechanics.
