The Mercedes-Benz R-Class ranks up there with Communism on the list of things no one else likes but the Chinese. And for that reason the unloved R model will live on.

According to Mercedes boss Dieter Zetsche, the R-Class, redesigned in 2011, will soldier on until at least 2015. “We need it for the Chinese market,” confirmed a company insider to the UK’s Autocar.

No decision has been made beyond that point as to whether a second-generation R-Class will be offered. Until then, Chinese Benz lovers with big families lots of comrades can rest assures the R-Class is sticking around.
