    This snippet-grade article:
    http://www.businessfinancenews.com/23877-tesla-motors-inc-tsla-mercedezbenz-working-on-model-s-rival/
    Is little more than a single sentence worth of information. 311 mile all electric range, released soon.

    Not even a drawing? Hasty pencil sketch on a napkin? Work-in-progress vehicle name? Price? The Chinese put a little more talk on the table when they claim they are building a Tesla rival.

    I loathe to post it, I wouldn't even call it sketchy (no sketch), but perhaps there's more info out there others can share. Of the luxury brands, Mercedes seems to have the most experience with all-electrics.

    That range prediction is European-style: 311 miles will be 200 miles in reality. And after that... nothing.
