    Mercedes-Benz is more than just one of the coolest automotive brands, they practically invented the first modern car and now they are giving us the Vision Mercedes Simplex, a step for the brand into the world of electric vehicles! Mercedes has been dominating race tracks and sales over the past few years, but it seems that Mercedes has finally made a critical error. With the likes of Tesla and all their models including the recent Cybertruck and other companies like Ford with their Mach-E, just exactly how is Mercedes going to respond?

    WheelHouse answers all the questions about the automotive and motorcycle world you never thought to ask. Nolan Sykes looks at the history, sociology and psychology behind the cars and bikes you love, and the features you might overlook.

      @Martin-Rasmus Kass true, but one thing is drive a car you got to load waiting, and you need a garage or some Designed place to load it, and the other is basically a car, using a fuel you can refill anywhere, just like always, can be more expensive in the price x distance, but also can be cheaper to buy and maintain

          I think you are taking the concept car too seriously. Most car buyers don't care about concepts... they care about products. That's where Mercedes has to win. And is where I think they can win.

              They're shoving this electric shit down our throats when it's nowhere near ready to replace internal combustion engines. There are better solutions and EVs isn't it.

                    I like the Simplex, it looks like a T-Bucket. If it had a proper grille to allow the motor and batteries to have proper cooling, proper headlights etc, I'd drive it.

Cost (and I mean cost TO BUY, not cost to maintain), range, recharge time (must be as fast as filling a gas tank) recharge locations (must be as many of them in as many different locations as gas stations, and be able to charge ALL battery powered vehicles) must be as reliable and not cost more to repair than ICE powered vehicles, which means all service and repair information AND parts MUST be available to everyone. This MAY happen by the beginning of the 22nd century, but I doubt it. I see no future in battery powered vehicles. So far they have been a complete and utter failure. I think the future will be elsewhere, maybe hydrogen powered vehicles.
