    I found this easily affordable BEV made by Mercedes. Charge at home, features 2 speeds (2.5 mph and 5.0 mph), easy to park and is the blue I like. Watch out Tesla!

    But how long will it take to accelerate to 5mph? ;)

    What's important to note here is that the Merc BEV is in a *showroom*, not a dealership. Looks like Mercedes is coming around...

    I think the real issue here is the range and lack of supercharging option...

    Looks like it comes with the optional rear view telescope so you can see how far behind you left a Tesla from a stop.

    Forget Supercharging: Battery swap can be done in under a minute!

    Did they follow their corporate policy of deceptively publishing motor horsepower numbers?

    I think everyone's missing the real benefit of this Mercedes BEV ... you can get a Costco hotdog the same day you take delivery.

    It would be perfect if it had Gull-wing doors ...
