Nice, but with a range of just 90 miles its a grave disappointment!
So BMW, VW and now Mercedes - short range, high prices and low, low availability!
We still own a Mercedes, but it feels such a dinosaur - but we will not be trading it, for a B-Class!
as an industry car makers only seem to iterate rather than really evolve, its going to take a lot of generations of evs from the established car makers before we get cars that we really consider the equal of their ICE cars.
On the way they will have to work out a business model to re-coup the money they lose in spares and servicing otherwise that money has to go up front on the sticker price.
Only companies without an antiquated business model can push this industry in a direction it does not want to go, Tesla are doing it but it really needs another 2 or 3 companies pushing the boundaries to get some momentum going.
If the b class would have come with a 48kw battery I would have bought one in a heart beat and we would be a 2 ev family but for now I need to hang onto the diesel , cant get my 3 dogs in the leaf and sure as hell wont be putting them in the model S when it comes
