A Clearer Photo of a Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Caught on Cam

The Mercedes-Benz GLE coupe is baring more skin as days go by, which means its launching might be sooner than expected. However, several sources claimed that the mid-size sport utility vehicle will not be launched until the latter part of 2015, so we will just have to wait for further details from Mercedes and see about that. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLE coupe’s almost undisguised spy photos that we posted earlier, the one above has nearly stripped down its camouflage in the front bumper. This one is not much different than the latest photos we had, but it gives us a better look of what the three-pointed star brand has in store for… Continue Reading »

Daimler Promises to Keep the Steering Wheel in Autonomous Cars

With the coming wave of autonomous cars and even trucks, several questions were raised by critics and auto enthusiasts. Among them is, “what happens to the steering wheel?” According to Bloomberg, Daimler CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche promised that they will still retain the features that have defined automobiles since its invention like the steering wheel, and the basic pedals. The introduction of autonomous cars is currently perceived by many as an event that might put a lot of traditional car components inconsequential. That is the reason why Google killed off all the manual features in its prototype driverless car. However, Dr. Zetsche stated in his speech at Oxford yesterday, “We specifically do not want to… Continue Reading »

New Mercedes Model Names Revealed

A couple of months ago, we reported about the planned renaming of some of Mercedes-Benz’s popular ranges. Recently, we have confirmed the new Mercedes model names through Daimler’s press section.   As can be seen in the information provided by Daimler above, anything beyond the core series (namely the A, B, C, E, and S), the iconic names (G-Class and SL), and the newer models (CLA and GLA) will be affected by the renaming strategy of Mercedes-Benz. The changes will take full effect in 2015, said the report. The individual powertrain designations of its vehicles will also be updated and indicated in a small letter following the model name.

Official Teaser Photos of the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Released

Mercedes-Benz tweeted something that got everyone too excited just a while ago. That’s because its social media post contained two teaser images of the upcoming Mercedes-Maybach S600. So far, only the lettering in the rear indicating the model name, and the elegant cabin design of the car were revealed by the Twitter post of the German automaker. However, it is great to see the Maybach name resurrected in a new car under the three-pointed star marque. It should be noted that the Maybach brand was scrapped in 2012. Since then, it opened up a void in the ultra-luxury segment of Daimler. After quite some time though, it was announced that the name will be revived… Continue Reading »

Daimler Boss Says No One Will Make Money on Electric Cars Yet

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is now on sale, which received good reviews from critics. However, if money matters were to be considered, Daimler CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche does not seem to be so confident about electric cars as of the moment. 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 »
