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.

Gone are many of the physical switches found in the older version of the S-Class. Mercedes said...

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...

Car companies will sacrifice autonomous vehicles before they cut spending on EVs as the auto industry faces its biggest threat since the 2008 financial crisis, an expert says

While the coronavirus has created an enormous challenge for the auto industry, it isn't likely to derail plans to roll out new electric vehicles in the coming years, industry experts and automakers told Business Insider. Emissions and production regulations, particularly in Europe and China, will give auto companies little choice but to sell more EVs, said Maryann Keller, the principal of Maryann Keller and Associates.  Volkswagen, Toyota, and four other automakers told Business Insider the co...

COVID-19 rocked the auto industry, but the pandemic hasn't derailed the shift toward electric and self-driving cars. It's forging ahead.

The novel coronavirus has had a major impact on travel habits in recent months, but it won't have a profound impact on the future of electric and autonomous vehicles, industry experts told Business Insider. Autonomous-vehicle companies may add more limited-occupancy models to their lineups and increase their focus on deliveries, said Reilly Brennan, a partner at Trucks Venture Capital. And automakers may seek more partnerships related to electric-vehicle technology, but electric-vehicle adopti...

Mercedes-Benz, Nvidia partner to bring ‘software defined’ vehicles to market in 2024

Dig into the guts of a 2020 Mercedes-Benz — or just about any modern luxury vehicle — and dozens of electronic control units will appear.

Bavaria-based BMW says it aims to cut roughly 6,000 positions from its lineup on account of coronavirus complications.
