Mercedes opts for more screens and fewer buttons in the 2021 S-Class

Teaser images and leaked photos of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class suggested the automaker was moving towards a more digital-centric interior. That might have been an understatement. Mercedes-Benz revealed Monday its second-generation MBUX infotainment system and it is loaded with new technology, including touchscreens, augmented reality head-up display as well as improved voice and facial recognition. Gone are many of the physical switches found in the older version of the S-Class. Mercedes said...

Best-laid Plans, and All That: Daimler Cuts Likely to Continue

Daimler plans to turn up the volume on cost-cutting measures due to operating losses in the second quarter that haven’t officially manifested. CEO Ola Källenius believes the damage caused by the pandemic response will be too severe to proceed with business as usual for the rest of 2020. At the company’s annual meeting, held Wednesday, the CEO […] The post Best-laid Plans, and All That: Daimler Cuts Likely to Continue appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

3D TVs Didn't Die, They Just Ended Up in Cars

After dominating trade shows for years as the next big thing in home entertainment, 3D TVs seemingly completely disappeared overnight, replaced by technologies like OLED that are a genuine improvement on the television experience. Where all those gimmicky screens actually went was a mystery, though—until today, when …Read more...

2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Review – For the Fun CEO

There are certain flagship luxury cars that suggest the driver has “made it” – assuming “making it” means climbing the corporate ladder to the point that owning and driving a large, imported luxury sedan with a six-figure price tag is no sweat, financially speaking. The Lexus LS, BMW 7 Series and 8 Series, and Mercedes-Benz […] The post 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Review – For the Fun CEO appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mercedes-Benz 2021 S-Class jumps on the giant touchscreen bandwagon

Mercedes-Benz sent out a teaser image and video Monday of its upcoming 2021 S-Class that hints at a sleeker interior that forgoes the bevy of physical knobs and toggles found in previous models in favor of a digital-centric design. The teasers illustrate a movement in the automotive industry popularized by Tesla to incorporate large touchscreens in new models. Little is known about Mercedes’ next-generation MBUX infotainment system, which will debut in the 2021 S-Class. It appears, based on Merc...

Daimler-backed Momenta says its robotaxis will be fully driverless and profitable in 2024

In China and the U.S., there’s much debate about when and how humans will achieve fully autonomous robotaxis at scale — cars that chauffeur passengers under complex road conditions without safety drivers behind the wheel. Many pieces are needed to make this happen: mammoth amounts of test data, advanced algorithms, strong operational teams, big checks from investors, local policy support, to name a handful. Until that day arrives, the bold claims from players in the field seem mostly out of reac...

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA: Quick but Detailed Walk Around This Sleek SUV

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA is certainly a stylish little guy. He’s the latest in what has been a busy year for Mercedes-Benz when it comes to their SUV and crossover lineup. We saw the new GLB roll into town, a compact city cruiser with a third row (it even has an AMG variant because why not). From there, Mercedes-Benz released the new midsize GLC, followed by the three-row GLE (we like the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe). After that, the larger GLS entered the fold with a whopping 500-plus lb-ft...

BMW Looks to Shed About 6,000 Positions, Ends AV Partnership With Mercedes

Bavaria-based BMW says it aims to cut roughly 6,000 positions from its lineup on account of coronavirus complications. Times are tough and the manufacturer needs to tighten its belt, just like many of its peers. The alley-oop that precedes the slam dunking of these jobs into the wastebasket will be tempting retirement packages for those […] The post BMW Looks to Shed About 6,000 Positions, Ends AV Partnership With Mercedes appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

At Home Forever: Automakers Consider New Ways of Working

BMW, Mercedes Benz end ‘long term’ automated driving alliance, for now

BMW Group and Mercedes-Benz AG have punted on what was meant to be a long term collaboration to develop next-generation automated driving technology together, less than a year after announcing the agreement. The German automakers called the break up “mutual and amicable” and have each agreed to concentrate on their existing development paths. Those new paths may include working with new or current partners. The two companies also emphasized that cooperation may be resumed at a later date. The pa...

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe: Have Your Cake & Eat It Too!

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe features a new EQ Boost system.Horsepower is up slightly, but torque is up significantly versus the prior model. Zero to 60 mph is estimated by Mercedes-AMG at 4.8 seconds; top speed is TBD. The Germans are just going to keep calling these swoopy sedans coupes. I guess we should just give in to the new convention and go along with it. In this case, we’re talking about the 2021 Mercedes AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe. And sure, it tries to have it both ways, bu...

Mercedes-Benz Gives Up Trying to Hide the New S-Class

With the next S-Class leaking more than a screen door on a submarine, Mercedes-Benz seems to have given up trying to obfuscate its design. With its freshly un-camouflaged sedan having been shared less than a month ago, the German automaker dropped a teaser image that effectively confirms the leak was the real deal.  There’s not much […] The post Mercedes-Benz Gives Up Trying to Hide the New S-Class appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Bolder, or Blander? Upcoming Mercedes-Benz S-Class Apparently Spied

A Spanish Instagram account seemingly leaked photos of an uncovered next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class late Tuesday, showing off the flagship’s new face and caboose and revealing something far more noteworthy: a screen-heavy cockpit that throws tradition to the wind. Not that the previous S-Class’ cabin was overly festooned with traditional buttons or dials. Still, the new […] The post Bolder, or Blander?

EV Offensive Looking More and More Like a Decoy Attack

Mercedes-Benz is nixing its all-electric EQ hatchback, according to R&D boss Markus Schäfer. Instead, it’s going to play a GLA-sized EQA crossover as its next hand. Speaking with Autocar, Schäfer basically said it was a question of market demand. The EQC has already been delayed until at least 2021 for U.S. customers, though we’ve heard talk that […] The post EV Offensive Looking More and More Like a Decoy Attack appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

At this point, only Ford has yet to deliver a firm restart date for its U.S. assembly plants, with Detroit rivals Fiat Chrysler and General Motors pegging May 18th for a cautious ramp-up of manufacturing activities.
