Mercedes-Benz Dials Back To ICE Cars After EVs Fail To Boost Profit

Going Back to the Basics Mercedes-Benz CEO Ola Källenius revealed during the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting that they are getting their sights back on internal combustion engine (ICE) cars instead of going all-in on electric vehicles (EV). This somehow supports the earlier statements of US dealership owners and insiders that the dwindling EV sales have forced the German automaker to change its stance on its electrification target. “They’re not going to force [EVs] on the market,” an unnamed Mercedes retailer said in an interview with Automotive News. “They are going to allow the market to dictate.” The move is in line with the brand’s “Economics of Desire” business slogan wherein… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz Downshifts To ICEs Amid Stagnating Demand For EVs

Previously, insiders within Mercedes-Benz revealed the brand’s prioritization of its ICE and hybrid models. The decision apparently came due to the dwindling interest of buyers in EVs, the shortage in semiconductor components, and the higher profit margins offered by its gasoline-fed units. Recently, this move was confirmed by several sources. The brand’s strategy goes in line with its “Economics of Desire” business strategy wherein it does not shove down products in consumers’ throats. Instead, it adjusts to what market trends dictate. In this case, it had something to do with the buyers’ rekindled preference toward ICE vehicles. “They’re not going to force [EVs] on the market,” a Mercedes retailer said… Continue Reading »


Mercedes-Benz Ditches Plans For Two-Cylinder Range Extender

Citing inside sources within Mercedes-Benz, Autocar claimed the luxury automaker’s initial plan was to install a specially-tailored two-cylinder version of the M254 four-cylinder engine with an exhaust system in front of its EVs.

The hardware does not provide a performance boost because it was only designed as a backup and it had no direct link to the wheels. One of the test mules used for the project was a rear-wheel drive EQS 450+ and the implementation of the system has reportedly led to the bump of its range… Continue Reading »
