Mercedes-Benz making new EV to rival BMW i3 and Model III
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that it will be building new mass-market electric vehicle. That vehicle will compete with the likes of the BMW i3 and the future Tesla Model III.
This new EV is going to be designed from the ground up. Mercedes-Benz hasn't committed to electrifying an internal-combustion platform. The concept is being studied more before a final decision has been made.
We don't have a time-frame for this new EV model, but you would expect it to come out sometime in the next 2-3 years so that it can compete with the i3 and the Model III.
