The Mercedes GLE Coupe will fulfill your fantasies. But if you want a Mercedes that can shame the BMW X5, both on and off-road, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is your top choice. “The GLE exhibits iconic Mercedes-Benz design while remaining true to its character as an off-roader,” said Gorden Wagener, Ch...

From Sketch to Prototype: The Mercedes Benz EQ Silver Arrow Concept

Debuted at Pebble Beach just a day ago, the Mercedes Benz EQ Silver Arrow concept is quite a looker. It also bases itself on the design of the Mercedes Benz W125 Rekordwagen from 1938… a car that, 80 years ago, wrote history for traveling down a public road at a jaw-dropping speed of 269 mph; a record that remained unbroken for 79 years, until 2017.However, I digress. The EQ Silver Arrow bases itself on a car that set a 79-year-old speed record, so it’s no surprise that the Silver Arrow was buil...

Mercedes Vision EQ Silver Arrow Goes Official
