The most powerfull 4-cyl engine? Look at Mercedes-Benz

The most powerfull 4-cyl engine is the 415 HP 2 lt turbo from Mercedes-Benz in the new A45s and CLA45s... Both are compacts rockets that can go from 0 to 65 in less than 4 sec.

So slower, smaller, more expensive, and less efficient than a Model 3. They’re sure to sell loads of them.

Also infinitely more attractive, far better built, and much quicker/easier to refuel.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

...there is nothing attractive about the melted bar of soap look of an A-Class. And nothing is easier than my car being fully charged every morning I wake up. Better built? Maybe. But, it will depreciate faster, so the A has that going for it...

Very attractive in fact.
And much faster as they won't literally hit a brick wall at 130mph, capable of much more speed.

LOL, no kidding. A bar of soap is correct. And call me when any BEV can take me to Florida without the hassle of planned/delayed charging locations.
