Well it took a long time for my insurance company to validate the VIN! They still don't have the model registered in Canada. Apparently the car doesn't exist yet. They insurance company had to list it as a different model.
Yesterday they finally validated the VIN - they said it couldn't be registered in Canada yet, but my ownership said otherwise.
Anyway, beware of any VIN issues. I assume they'll have this issue cleared up soon before too many other people take possession of these cars.
So far it's been pretty nice to drive - a far cry from my CLK55 that I just got rid of
People point and laugh at me a lot - a good exercise in humility
You can really get a lot more regeneration if you let off the throttle sooner coming to a stop instead of waiting and hitting the brakes at last minute.
On the ECO gage I've been trying to see how high of a number I can get. So far I've got up to 95%. My wife can't seem to exceed 35%, but then she gets about 175 fewer kms on a tank in our E320 also.
It certainly is a peppy car. Other drivers seem to feel the need to tailgate me and then try to pass me, but then I stomp on it and leave them in my eco-friendly dust
Highway range (120km/hr or 75mph) seems to be about 115kms/71miles. In the city (driving nicely at 90%+ on the ECO gage) I haven't drained it enough to make an accurate call yet, but earlier this evening I drove 16.1kms and used 11%, which calculated out equates to 146kms (91miles).
I hope this info is useful.
