Cernescu Andrei / 5 years ago
It looks like Tesla might receive some serious competition soon, as Mercedes-Benz is about to release its own electric car that’s aimed to go against the impressive Tesla Model S. The research director over at Mercedes-Benz, Thomas Weber, has stated that the new car will be available “soon”, but we’ll probably find out more about the vehicle’s availability at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Speaking of this particular event, this is where Audi plans to unveil its E-Tron Quattro concept car, which will be a completely electric SUV aimed to compete against the Tesla Model X. BMW might not be far behind in the electric car segment, as some reports suggest that its experts are working on electric cars based on the i5 model.
As government emissions standards are becoming more and more demanding, Daimler-Benz is investing heavily in the development of low-emission technologies, electric vehicle batteries and lithium-ion batteries. This is good news for those of you who were planning to switch over to an electric vehicle in the following years, as competition between the German automakers and Tesla is bound to result in lower prices and more innovative features.
Would you buy an electric Mercedes-Benz car or do you believe that conventional engines are still the way to go?
