"Ready for Change?" That is what Mercedes-Benz asks in a new video before the Paris Motor Show. Will Maley reports for TorqueNews.com in this original story about the New Mercedes video, called REady for Change.
The video teases what we believe is an electric SUV concept. What leads us to this conclusion is a brief shot of the wheels that reveals a higher ride height than if it was a sedan. Other details the brief video shows is a large grille with a blue outline, panoramic glass panels on the roof, and a set of capacitive controls for the infotainment system.
This concept is our first look into a possible electric sub-brand Mercedes is planning to launch within the next few years. All of the models in this sub-brand will utilize a new architecture specifically built for electric vehicles. An SUV is expected to come out first to take on the Tesla Model X.
Mercedes-Benz was planning to introduce a diesel engine for the U.S.-market C-Class earlier this year. But nothing has appeared. What is going on? This story is originally published by Will Maley at TorqueNews.com.
Automotive News (Subscription Required) decided to get to the bottom of this story and found out that the Mercedes-Benz is making plans to launch the C-Class diesel sometime next year.
“The latest plan is sometime in 2017 (mid-2017 is a reasonable estimate, not firm), but this is certainly subject to change,” said Rob Moran, a spokesman for Mercedes-Benz.
Why the long wait? It comes down to the EPA putting more scrutiny into emission tests for diesel vehicles after it was found out that Volkswagen was using illegal software to cheat. Mercedes-Benz isn't the only the automaker dealing with this. A few weeks ago, it was reported that BMW isn't able to sell their diesel vehicles as they are still undergoing EPA tests.
It is expected that Mercedes will also launch diesel versions of the GLC and GLS SUVs sometime in 2017.
