  • Mercedes-Benz says battery EVs still superior, not interested in e-fuels

    Despite the policy U-turn by the European Union to exempt carbon-neutral synthetic fuels (also known as e-fuels) from the trade bloc’s 2035 ban on combustion engines, Mercedes-Benz will maintain its course to phase out combustion engines in favour of battery EVs. When asked by German business publication Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung if Mercedes-Benz welcomes the EU’s exemption of combustion engines running on carbon neutral e-fuels from the 2035 ban, CEO Ola Kallenius said “I think technology

  • Review: Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 - The only electric luxury SUV worthy of your consideration?

    Tesla is the poster child when it comes to electric vehicles (EVs) to the point that some might overlook better alternatives out there. One of them is the Mercedes-Benz EQA 250 and I know some of you might be thinking, “It’s just an electric GLA”. But the EQA is more than just a GLA with an electric motor; it’s a no-brainer kind of electric SUV. It’s an EV that feels and drives like its internal combustion engine (ICE) sibling with a few more redeeming qualities. As such, you’re not too overwhel

  • Mercedes-Benz: Malaysia's EV incentives catching up with Thailand, but 5-year plan needed if we're serious

    Mercedes-Benz Malaysia reckons that although Thailand appears to be ahead of the region in terms of policies to boost EV adoption and localization, Malaysia is still more or less on par. “If you are talking about localizing efforts or sales, I think both countries have an equal opportunity at the end of the day to showcase electric vehicles. I would say right now they are more or less on par, in terms of bringing more electric vehicle models, in terms of sales adoption, so let’s wait and see how

  • Mercedes-Benz EQA is sold out in Malaysia for 2022, work to increase 2023 allocation underway

    The Mercedes-Benz EQA may not be built on a dedicated EV-only platform like the EVA platform Mercedes-Benz EQS, which also means that in the hierarchy of EVs, the EQA has less appeal than Hyundai’s Ioniq 5, at least that what EV fans say. But you can’t argue against the three-pointed star and what the EQA lacks in technological superiority, it makes up for it with brand image and credibility in the bank’s priority customer’s parking. For some, things like this matter more than how great the EV p

  • Inflation and higher material cost: EVs unrealistically cheap in Malaysia, price hikes inevitable

    In early 2020, before Covid-19 hit and Russia hadn’t attacked Ukraine, makers of electric vehicles (EVs) were optimistic that prices of batteries will come down and reach cost parity of with combustion engine cars by 2025. Today, no one believes in that message anymore. In the near-term, prices of EVs will go up, not down. Consulting firm AlixPartners say that between 2020 to 2022, the cost of raw materials to build an EV has gone up by 144 percent. Yes, inflationary pressure, higher energy cost

  • Hap Seng Star to display EQA and 2 more Mercedes-Benz models at the WapCar Auto Show

    The automotive world, as they say, is going electric as regulations around the world proceed to ban combustion engines. There are no talks of combustion engines being banned in Malaysia or the ASEAN region as of now, but there are incentives for electric vehicles (EV). From now until 31-December 2025, EVs are tax-free (though sales tax still applies to CBU EVs) which means value wise, they offer huge bang-for-the-buck. Also read: Tax-free EVs?

    Feels natural to drive Tough to achieve claimed range Loses to the XC40 EV on paper Have you ever met someone who you almost immediately took a liking to but as time passes, you realise a few disagreeable traits about that person and slowly, you become more distant?
