    This post has a link to an article in German. Google translate works pretty well for us English speakers.

    EU Market Situation and Outlook - Page 185

    Several German suppliers are listed. I thought it was interesting that Thyssan-Krupp is supplying the steering column, instead of Mercedes as with the S. This gave Daimler a clear view of Model S sales, including future forecasts.

    However, maybe Thyssan-Krupp makes the Mercedes column?

    I have found that Japanese and German supply chains have very little secrets through informal communication networks. I'm sure someone at TK will whisper sales info to Mercedes.
