My son, who currently drives a nice C Class with some AMG accoutrements said he’d go EV when they have a thousand mile range.
I know that is a "H...E..double hockey sticks" freezes over statement, but what ICE vehicle gets a thousand miles on a tank?
Speaking about choice...
My wife is thinking about trading in her Jaguar XE 35t next year, and she had her eyes on a Mercedes Benz GLC43 coupe, but I had recently read an article that Mercedes is dropping the GLC "43" variants in 2020...as a matter of fact, they're not even on the Mercedes production schedule for 2020. Rumor has it Mercedes MIGHT
use their new 416 hp 4 cylinder engine featured in the new A Class 45s, and then call the GLC a "53" in 2021...who knows. So it looks like your choices for the GLC in 2020 is a 300, or a 63/63s...no 43. My wife doesn't want a gas guzzling V8, so scratch the Mercedes off her list in 2020.
Then she started looking at a Jaguar F-Pace S, only to read an article that Jaguar was thinking about dropping the supercharged 380 hp 3.0L V6 engine in the XE and F-Pace next year when the new face lifts of those vehicles come out as 2021 models, and going with a 296 hp 4 banger...or the V8 in the SVR F-Pace. My wife just doesn't want to spend close to $90k on a gas guzzling V8, and she doesn't want a 4 banger.
So who knows...maybe she'll end up buying a BMW X4 M40i since she's not interested in an EV Macan (she likes my GTS though), an Audi SQ5 because they don't offer a "coupe" version, or anything else like an Alfa or a Maserati. The BMW may not be her first choice, but she feels its better than owning a 4 banger.
In any case, it looks like there will be interesting times ahead for the automobile industry in the very near future...especially for the European models.
