LUCID Air - High End BEV

Greetings, We stopped at Shake Shack recently, its adjacent to a Shopping Mall that has gone "Up Scale" during the COVID shutdown, and boasts a lot of fancy expensive stores (and the biggest Apple Store I've seen), anyway... There's a LUCID car showroom in the mall, complete with a LUCID Air vehicle...

Re: Bye-Bye To My Beloved MB B250e

Peter, did you look at the Tesla Model Y? I test drove one and it was pretty awesome, and I presume cheaper than a new Audi. Not sure about pricing for used Audi's. I loaned Elon Musk one thousand dollars, like a lot of people, when the Model 3 was on back order. Then I sat in one at the Tesla show...

Re: Bye-Bye To My Beloved MB B250e

Till we meet again Peter! Indeed! I think those of us with the BEV bug will find one another down the road. Good choice that as an experience EV driver, you know your needs better than someone coming over from an ICE car. Too bad about the XC40 for you. I wish Volvo all the best, they just don't ha...

Bye-Bye To My Beloved MB B250e

Greetings, To move forward on our electric vehicle journey we have traded my beloved B250e. In its place we have a gentle used Audi e-tron MY2019. A tough decision, but Mercedes Benz of America has let us down by not producing a successor to the B Klass electric. I doubt I'll buy another ICE vehicle...

Audi e-tron Test Drive

Took an Audi e-tron (MY2019) out on the public roads today. Comparing it to my much-loved MB 250e. Pros 1. Range (204 vs 85) 2. L3 (CCS or “DC”) Charging (Can charge to 80% in about 30minutes on a 150kw EVSE) 3. Interior volume is much bigger than the B250, comparable to our Acura MDX SUV (yes, we h...

MB EV Battery (Supplier) Problem

Greetings,

This is of zero impact to us (B250e owners) but it doesn't look good for MB's EV program going forward.

Volvo XC40 Recharge Test Drive

Took a Volvo XC40 Recharge out on the public roads today. Comparing it to my much-loved MB 250e. Pros 1. Range (208 vs 85) 2. L3 (CCS or “DC”) Charging 3. Interior volume is about the same as the B250, nowhere near as claustrophobic as the Tesla Model 3. 4. Android Automotive (Google Assist) - No ce...

Re: Pedestrian warning, blind spot and adaptive cruise

1: I have tried as tried to hear the pedestrian warning sound but cannot hear it. Is this something that can be turned on with an ObD reader? My B250e emits a humming sound when driving below about 30kph. It's not too loud, I can hear it from the driver's seat with the windows closed. 2: when using...

Re: Guess oh meter going down quickly

Thanks for the replies, I do tend to drive with a heavy foot but the GOM goes down to a quarter when I just pop to the shops for 3-5miles driving gently. Do you think I need to book it in with Mercedes or if you can recommend a better place locally (Tamworth, Staffordshire) Chris, Would you mind ta...
