The unloved Mercedes-Benz R-Class has officially gotten the axe in the U.S., but production will continue on thanks to the demand in China, Mexico, and Canada.

The 2012 model year will be the last of the R-Class in America and it really is no surprise considering the German luxury automaker has moved a scant 300 vehicles through the month of March. For now though, the R-Class will continue to be produced out in Alabama through 2015, when it’s expected that Mercedes will replace the model with a sleeker vehicle related to the M-Class.
