Mercedes-Benz goes Sharia

Mercedes-Benz has figured out a creative way to differentiate itself from the rest of the auto brands in the Gulf region by going “Sharia” compliant. Teaming up with the UAE based dealers, Gargash and Al-Fahim, Mercedes launched two companies named Mercedes-Benz Finance Middle East and Mercedes-Benz Leasing Middle East which will offer buyers in the UAE a chance at financing their cars without going against any Islamic Sharia rules.

Due to the economic crisis, automakers have to think outside the box to aid their struggling network of dealers around the world. Quite creative if you ask me. Mercedes -Benz plan on rolling this concept out through the rest of the region some time in the future.
