Electric Mercedes-Benz C-Class not due until after 2024 – report

Electrification was a cornerstone of the all-new 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but while mild-hybrids and plug-in hybrids are set to play a key role, a full electric vehicle (EV) is still some way off. Speaking to the UK’s Autocar, Mercedes-Benz chief operating officer Markus Schafer revealed that the brand has in place enough steps to cover electric vehicle demand right now, pushing an electric equivalent of the C-Class back to at least 2024.

Mandy Turner and Mike Costello record the podcast inside a white 2020 Lexus RX350 F Sport. Mike covers November's new car sales figures, which saw the Mazda 3 and Ford Mustang perform poorly, and the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger 4x4 battle for top spot. We speak to Dr. Miklos Kiss, head of pre-development for automated driving at Audi AG, and Curt Dupriez compares the 2020 Kia Seltos GT-Line and Nissan Qashqai Ti.

Mercedes-Benz launches direct-to-buyer EQC sales model

Mercedes-Benz is going to sell the EQC electric car in Australia in a new way — one that reduces the role of conventional dealerships but claims to address buyer concerns. It's also the latest brand to offer online sales for specialist models, something the likes of Toyota, Subaru and Genesis have previously tried, and in some cases continue to offer.

Mercedes-Benz EQC here in October, first batch spoken for

Mercedes-Benz Australia is reporting high levels of buyer interest in its first fully-electric car, the EQC crossover, even though it’s still seven months away from going on sale. The company has taken hundreds of ‘buyer registrations’, more expressions of interest than money-down deposits, since December, and already considers the entire 2019 production supply destined for our market to be effectively spoken for.
