the whole 'VW is aimed at M-B' thing is more PR positioning / marketing than
substance.  he wants to move the brand awareness of potential buyers upscale more
than real intending to build $50-100k luxury cars.  a perfectly valid PR move,
given that the historical perception of VW in the US has been
_cheap_transportation_ more than quality transportation.
