Smart Cars to be sold on Sina Weibo
Mercedes Benz is selling a limited edition of 666 'Snake' Smart cars in Sina Weibo this Friday, to mark the Year of the Snake.
The cars will sell for approximately $20,000, and it's the first time cars have been sold on the platform. However Mercedes have experimented with sales like this before, for example in 2010 they sold 205 of them on Taobao. I expect these will be sold even more quickly.
