So, Daimler is following in Tesla's footsteps: Electric Autonomous Drive. But they aren't fully committed...New statement from Daimler... note the quote from their VP of Sales & Product Mgt @ Mercedes: 'Lührs said the success of EQ—and the effort ramping up to it—depends on three things: customer demand, infrastructure, and regulations.'
Here too, @MichelT3 , as is often the case I'm with you. When you are prepared to invest €10B ($11B) into something, you are placing a solid bet. Besides, IMHO, I would always believe Daimler before I believe VAG...So, Daimler is following in Tesla's footsteps: Electric Autonomous Drive. But they aren't fully committed...
I wonder, is this good or bad?
Let's be optimistic: they will really do it. In that case people can't deny anymore that this will be the way forward. Let's hope so.
Pffff! Rather stupid with all those blue lights and bling bling. But nothing about useful options, nor about its features.More on the Daimler EQ... for 'clearly upper class' aficionados (like my best friend from Germany, who only swears by the brand of the Silver Arrows...! )
Actually, it's obviously no T≡SLA, yet a decently looking mid-size SUV...
I'm in The Netherlands, right next to Germany.I learned recently that the blue accent thing in EVs is the European version of what we consider "green" in North America.
We see everything environmental as being "green", usually associated with nature and a lot of logos feature leaves.
In Germany they use blue to the same effect.
