Daimler is expected to announce its upcoming lineup of electric vehicles under Mercedes’ new EV brand at the Paris Motor Show in the next few days. Ahead of the event, Mercedes released a teaser of a vehicle to be unveiled at the show.
It certainly looks interesting…
Last year, Mercedes greenlighted 4 new all-electric cars for production, 2 sedans and 2 SUVs.
Recent reports suggested that one of the SUV would be the first vehicle to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. And more importantly, the reports suggested that the vehicle could hit the market as soon as next year and the rest of the vehicles would be in production by 2020.
This timeline was encouraging, but the vehicle that Mercedes is now teasing looks nothing like a production car.
We are talking something looking as much as a concept as it possibly could:
Especially when you consider that it doesn’t even have side mirrors, though some markets have started to accept systems with cameras instead of mirrors. Anyway, it’s a feature that can be easily left out in the production version.
But several other design features also scream “concept”:
We will give Mercedes the benefit of the doubt until the official unveiling. Ready to Change? Yes, we are. Bring it Mercedes.
