  • Audi A1 e-tron Concept

    Can there ever be such a thing as too much honesty when it comes to frank discussions about your company policy? Normally we’d say no, but when you start to sow the seeds of doubt about the thing you’re trying to sell we’d say otherwise. Especially in the case of Christian Klingler, a board member responsible for sales at Volkswagen and Dieter Zetsche, Daimler CEO. In separate events last week both men warned that electric car market share expectations may be overly optimistic. Both complained about the duress they felt under to develop electric cars in order to satisfy...

    Touring Tesla: Electric Car Startup Struts Its Green Stuff

    It's debatable whether Tesla Motors should even be called a startup. It's five years old, it has almost 1,400 cars on the road, and it has 700 people working for it globally. Yesterday, in a bid to reinforce its credentials as a real automaker--the kind that can design, engineer, test, and build a...

    Latest Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive Licensee: Mercedes-Benz ???

    With BMW slowly revealing further details of their upcoming Megacity EV and teasing us with the 2009 MINI E, and Mercedes-Benz giving us the A-Class E-Cell, it was only a matter of time before rival Audi hit the roads with their own small EV.

  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz A-Class E-Cell battery electric vehicle (Europe only)

    Joining the electric-vehicle party, Mercedes-Benz has released final details of its first mass-produced all-electric car, which will start coming down the line in October at its plant in Rastatt, Germany. Its formal debut will be at the 2010 Paris Motor Show later this month. Don't get your hopes up, though: The company is only building 500 of them, and they're only available in a handful of European countries, including Germany, France, and the Netherlands. In fact, the A-Class isn't sold in North America at all, making it all but impossible that U.S. buyers might see Benz's battery-electric...
