Favorite model of Mercedes-Benz
I am an avid believer of Electric Cars. For the past 7 years, I have been driving our entry Mercedes electric car: B250
However on Christmas Eve I had the good fortune of taking delivery of the most amazing electric car our new Mercedes 2022 EQS. I respect and applaud Elon Musk and Tesla who innovated and proved the benefits of the electrical car. But now we have the Mercedes of electric cars. And there are many more coming soon.
