Mercedes opens the German assault on Tesla

Mercedes-Benz EQC prototype testing in Black Forest

Available this fall, the 2019 Jaguar i-Pace small AWD crossover has a 90 kWh battery making 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque, good for a 240-mile range and 0-60 miles per hour time of 4.5 seconds.

All EQC's are equipped with a water-cooled onboard charger (OBC) with a capacity of 7.4 kW, making it suitable for fast AC charging at home or at public charging stations.

Range anxiety: The EQC is set to be able to travel more than 450km on a single charge. Aside from the usual crash tests and regular developments and so on, the EQC has received further safety attention surrounding the battery and components that carry electricity.

Tropical Storm Gordon Hits Gulf Coast, Killing a Child in Florida
The Escambia County Sheriff's office posted on its Facebook page that responding deputies discovered the child had been killed. The center of Gordon is expected to track northwest today and eventually the weather will quiet down in Alabama.

Mercedes and other luxury brands are pushing aggressively into electric cars to challenge Tesla after its success in wooing wealthy buyers with the Model S. Including the Smart brand, which will abandon combustion engines in coming years, Daimler plans to offer 10 fully electric cars by 2022.

"(However), as we get into volume and further develop the technology - especially on the battery side - we go from thousands, tens of thousands, to hundreds of thousands of vehicles per year, we see a very good chance for that cost curve to become much more attractive.

"With the EQC - the first fully electric SUV from Mercedes-Benz - we are flipping the switch", said Dieter Zetsche, chief executive of Mercedes-Benz Cars, at the EQC's reveal in Stockholm last night. The lines are that of your traditional SUV, but with a little more emphasis on EQ branding and electric power through fibre optics and a tech-inspired design. When asked how to watch the lifestream of the EQC EV's unveling live, Mercedes replied that "there will be a live stream tomorrow on this page".

Burt Reynolds Dead At 82
He revered Spencer Tracy as an early mentor and came to know Johnny Carson, Clint Eastwood, Frank Sinatra and many others. Burt Reynolds died Thursday morning of a heart attack at a hospital in Florida , according to the Hollywood Reporter .

Wajih Hossenally, an automotive powertrain analyst with IHS Markit, said that Tesla has a strong hold on the EV market at present.

Underneath it all is a pair of asynchronous motors providing all-wheel drive, fed by an 80kWh lithium-ion battery.

With the EQC reportedly due to hit Australian shores in late 2019, that would mean the German carmaker could possibly give Tesla a run for their money here also - considering that in Norway, Mercedes have apparently already received 2,000 reservation orders before having even released pricing. And if you're going to look at its concept model, then it probably would have dual motors that churn out 402 HP in a distance of 250 to 300 miles.

Pressley's win shows rise of minority candidates among Democrats
Both he and Ms Pressley are seen as progressives - but she advocated for a more "activist" style of leadership. Pressley argued in her campaign that Capuano represents an old guard of politics, and it's time for a change.

Competition Mercedes EQC will be Jaguar I-Pace, which will soon appear on the Russian market, and BMW iX3, while existing only in concept form.
