Mercedes-Benz To Unveil First Production EQ Electric In Geneva
https://insideevs.com/mercedes-benz-...ric-in-geneva/


Just around two weeks left to the Geneva Motor Show, where, as always, we will see a lot of new plug-in electric cars and bold premiers.

Mercedes-Benz just announced that it will show the first series-production model from the electric EQ brand – it’s not said directly, but the German maker is certainly referring to the EQC all-electric SUV.

The EQC will enter the market in 2019 with at least 500 km (310 miles) of NEDC range.

Re: 2018 Genève International Motor Show

There are those appealing BEVs we were waiting for. VW/Audi are about to unveil their BEV Crossovers as well. Chevy is suppose to have a bunch of new Bolt-based crossovers arriving, we should see one pretty soon (Possibly New York). I think this is where BEVs really can take off, not in roadsters and sedans but in Crossovers which is an area Tesla has chosen to focus on last.

Volvos bores me... a lot... are bored and very expensive. Never in my wish list

That electric Mercedes-Benz will test how consumers will respond to electric cars.

Re: 2018 Genève International Motor Show

What happens to Tesla?
Short term sales rise a good deal as the Model 3 ramps up
But...
Increased competition reduces sales and/or profit per vehicle.
Raw material prices rise due to demand.
Loans have to be repaid. No more deposits to borrow from.
ROI gets pressured, delaying updates.


My guess is the vehicle manufacturing part of Tesla gets sold off to some conglomorate from China or India as Musk turns his attention elsewhere. I'll say somewhere around early 2021.

^Don't let the camo fool ya.

I might be fooled but that photo seems to show RWD proportions. A BEV might give designers the freedom to make vehicles look like they're supposed to; with wheels pushed to the corners & minimum overhang, especially up front.

Re: 2018 Genève International Motor Show

Audi's E-Tron also arriving shortly.

This might be what is motivating Ford to tease a MACH 1 SUV, we will see most carmakers producing something along these lines. Ford is very influenced by what VW/Audi do in particular. But I wonder if Mach 1 is just an NG Explorer with the 3.0T Hybrid power plant we know Aviator is getting (and so is Mustang and F-150 presumably). Ford's commitment to BEV products just started with Team Edison and all of those products are very distant at this point. I suspect Ford will be among the last carmakers to have a significant BEV presence with a clear focus on Gas Electrics.

Re: 2018 Genève International Motor Show

Ford has said they will have 16 BEV's by 2022, also using dedicated platforms. Which means that they will start rolling out much sooner. And Ford was committed long before they announced a name, with development officially starting well over 2 years ago. This perpetual misinformation and fabricated negativity is getting a bit pathetic. I get that we are all impatient, but all right already.

So early 2020 appears to be when Ford introduces new BEV's. But I bet their new PHEV's will be equally newsworthy.
