So let’s pit the new Mercedes electric SUV against its American rival in terms of exterior, interior, and performance. Exterior The Model X has a futuristic and yet simple design.

EQ sales and marketing chief Jorg Heinemann told Autocar that for now, Mercedes is simply concerned with establishing a “starting point” for the… Continue Reading »
