Luxury EV comparison: Six SUV challengers square off

The electric car revolution is finally becoming a reality, and not just at the fringes of the car industry. Tesla obviously got the jump on making EVs cool, and deserves some plaudits for it.

2019 BMW X5 v 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE

The quicker-than-usual development cycle for the fourth-generation BMW X5, and somewhat tardy arrival of the new Mercedes-Benz GLE, have combined to make their respective arrivals almost coalesce. Of course, we wouldn't dare determine which of these US-made luxury SUVs is superior without a proper comparison test, which we'll do as soon as both arrive on local shores: November this year for the BMW, and April/May next year for the Benz...

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE teased

Mercedes-Benz has turned attention to its next big SUV unveiling just a few days after the EQC reveal, teasing the new GLE. Numerous leaks and sets of spy pictures mean we already have a pretty good idea of how the GLE will look when it arrives.

This week's unveiling of the new Mercedes-Benz EQC has given the world its first look at the German giant's new family of electric vehicles, which will include even more SUVs and a number of other passenger cars. But, for Ola Kallenius – board of management member, and global head of research for Daimler AG and the development of all Mercedes-Benz models – it was probably no surprise that one of the first questions from the world's media was about AMG...

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE spied almost camouflage-free

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLE has been spied again, and what little disguise has been fitted leaves very little to the imagination. Up front the company has put some camouflage on the headlights, as well as false panels masking the sides of the grille. The section below the headlights is carefully concealed, suggesting we'll get a new lighting signature compared to the current range of Mercedes-Benz SUVs...

2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE, GLS recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for certain GLE and GLS SUVs sold during 2018 over concerns the rear axle's brakes could be compromised. The company reports hydrogen may become embedded in the material of the pistons "of a certain batch of brake calipers", which could then enter the hydraulic components of the rear axle and "cause compressibility there"...
