I don't know if many of you kept up with the happenings at Pebble Beach, but MB used the event to showcase a new electric concept car. Dubbed the Silver Arrow, this EV has an impressive powertrain, making around 738hp. It features an 90kWh battery that also enables it to drive approximately 250miles on a charge. While its unlikely that we will ever see this go past the concept stage, it is indicative of the kind of power and range we're likely to see on higher end EQ models.

Any EQ with a large platform should accomplish a mission to have a range of 300 miles if they want to be competitive in the EV market. Also Electrify America needs to get going on there charging stations. At the moment there is no rhyme or reason for what their schedule is.

Here we will be seeing the most integrated line of vehicles and as a result quite possibly the strongest push for higher range EV's.

Mercedes has money, scale, and resources... with those they are poised to become range leaders.

I'm loving all these single seat high performance concepts we are seeing lately. Infiniti's Concept 10 and Ferrari's Monza SP1 are looking equally impressive. I'm all for new speedsters on the market.

Just don't expect production versions to have one seat because being practical for every day use like what some P1 owners are up to is just as important. McLaren even tuned the P1 to behave how any car should in regular city/highway commutes.

Vehicles like this aren't bought for practicality, but Ferrari has already said the SP1 will be offered in both a single and dual seat configuration. These concepts don't even have trunks.
