There's a huge market distortion in China.

They sell a disproportionate numbers of S-Class compared with other models.

Per capita income is still low overall - combine that with an imbalanced wealth distribution - and the absolute numbers (a small % of a billion people is a lot of people) - and you get some interesting headlines (as well as actual facts I guess).

This is why the market is so deceptive in terms of the media headlines. It's not all it seems.
