The new Daimler Benz Maybach shows some credible EV ambition
Daimler Benz has talked the talk when it comes to its plans for EVs but has yet to walk the walk. A few heavily compromised hybrids don’t really cut it.
This new Maybach, beautiful as it is, doesn’t do anything to suggest that Mercedes’ model range is going electric any day soon but it does hint at the pain that they are feeling at the luxury end, especially in the US where the Tesla S has decimated Benz S Class sales.
The Telegraph story has a slide show of pictures of the car being previewed in the US this weekend. It is a truly wonderful thing and would give some credibility to Daimler-Benz’s stated EV ambitions.
