The Mercedes-Benz EQS has range ratings. Tesla is moving to Texas and working on an electric ATV for the Cybertruck. And what has a million miles all-electric taught Daimler Trucks? This and more, here at Green Car Reports.
The carmaker has provided range ratings for the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS. According to Mercedes, the large flagship luxury fastback has a 350-mile EPA rating in its single-motor EQS 450+ version and 340 miles in its faster, dual-motor EQS 580 form. That’s competitive with some Tesla Model S variants, but it’s a long way from the Lucid Air’s new high.
Daimler Trucks revealed that their fleet of entirely electric Freightliner trucks has already traveled a million miles in the United States, and they provided a first look at what they’ve learnt by switching electric.
And Tesla CEO Elon Musk gave a number of product updates on Thursday as part of the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting, which was hosted at the company’s Giga Texas plant in Austin. Among them: the electric ATV known as the Cyberquad, which combines with the Cybertruck, is still on the way, and Musk has stated that it will be the “least-dangerous ATV.” There will be enough 4680 cells from the company’s pilot battery factory in California to use in the ramp-up of Model Y production at the Austin plant. And he made it official: the company’s headquarters will be relocated to Texas.
