    "...and 53mph, everything you've come to expect from Mercedes." Yep, the preinstitutional rejoyce. LMFAO, very good, so magyarishly unsubtle.

    Extra funny since Julia Louis-Dreyfus drives a Model S!

    Saw it yesterday. I absolutely loved it! To me, it speaks to how early we are in this tech and how just far the other car makers have to go to catch up to Tesla. The best was when they showed how to change them out!

    One day, in the not-so-distant future, these batteries will be light, thin fabric mesh that will hold 5X the energy. And Tesla will be the ones to figure it out!

    Just wait.

    And let's give JL-D due props for a spot-on delivery. The look on her face as she pushes the
    door open through the mountain of batteries is priceless.

    The folks at Mercedes must be embarrassed to laugh so hard at this (as I assume they must).

    Good thing Benz owners will be used to returning to the dealer every 100 miles ;)
