Interesting numbers apparently recently published by the New York Times and reported in our weekend paper.

"U.S. car buyers are pulling the plug"

75% people who traded in a hybrid or electric car in 2016 and replaced it with an all-gas car.
18 percentage point increase in that figure from 2015.
1M President Barack Obama's 2015 target number for electric cars: the actual number now is 442,000.
2.4% electric and hybrid car sales as a portion of new car purchases.
16.2% U.S. greenhouse gas emissions that come from SUVs and pickups.

"Falling gas prices are prompting Americans to rekindle their love for bigger cars, pickup trucks and SUVs. It's bad news for makers of small cars, hybrids and electric vehicles - and for the environment."

We here know the advantages of our little guys and hopefully MB won't give up on us. With the Cabby now out and next month being the unveiling of the new 453 ED, it's good times - for now.:)

Now that's a good question!
We ordered our ED back in October and,
have been told ours will be the very first
2017 ED available in the Greater Vancouver area.
Just exactly when that is has yet to be determined...
