Mercedes Concept to Compete Against Tesla

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJuly 8th, 2016


Mercedes is planning an all new concept vehicle that will put it’s sights directly on the Tesla S. Competition for the Tesla is limited as not many automakers have ventured into the high end luxury EV space. Mercedes’ new concept is nearing it’s debut and it is rumored that the car will be similar size and stature to the Tesla as well as being an all wheel drive vehicle.

From a statement released by Jurgen Schenk, Mercedes-Benz E-Drive system integration director, “We will deliver something, which if you would scale it in the Mercedes rank of all the other vehicles, it will be in the top three for power. If you look into the first 100m it will be very, very fast.” He goes on to state that the new concept “could be dangerously fast, even the first version.”
