According to Bloomberg, the Daimler Boss stated in a speech at an event in Mallorca, Spain on October 27, “You can reasonably say that nobody today is making a battery-powered vehicle that’s economically viable in its own right.” He added, “Manufacturers will not see a return within a reasonable time on the billions they’re investing now.” The statements were in reference to the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive and basically to every automaker diving… Continue Reading »

US shale boom not very beneficial for Mercedes-Benz owners

With shale gas booming in the United States, regular gas prices are being driven down to some $3.03 per gallon, which would be the lowest figure in the past four years according to a Bloomberg report. However, if you happen to be driving a Mercedes-Benz, you’re not likely to enjoy the benefits of this new energy development. The price gap between premium gas used to make high-end/luxury vehicles run and regular gas also happens to be at its widest in the last six years. That means the shale boom isn’t positively affecting the price of premium high-octane gas, so Mercedes drivers aren’t enjoying any new benefits out of shale. Shale gas can be… Continue Reading »
