The world of plug in vehicle development with long range battery technology is heading into overdrive. Particularly with the premium brand manufacturers in Europe. Tesla’s success with the launch of the mass market Model 3 and of course the Model S which continues to grab a huge proportion of the premium car sales market volume from Benz, BMW, Audi, Porsche and others, has the traditional brands scrambling to catch up.

The new 2022 target date will still see Benz well behind the competition and not just Tesla. Jaguar, Volvo and numerous EV start-up’s are all in a race to excite the car buying public with the new generation of smart plug in transport models.
