It looks like Mercedes-Benz really really wants to launch their own urban mobility EV brand that surprisingly isn't the smart brand.

Now, the smart arm does appear to be still profitable despite falling sales YoY in the EU. China appears to be saving the day picking up the slack from the falling European sales. They adore smart out there. Is relying on China a good long term strategy? I'm not sure. Either way it does seem like Mercedes-Benz is prepping to shake up how they do things.

Mercedes keeps going smaller displacement, but on the higher end keeps increasing output. At some point it's CAFE rating needs the ED. Or is Trump dissolving CAFE requirements?

I wouldn't be surprised if an updated ED came out in the near future with longer range, kind of like the Leaf. They definitely have the funds to sort it out....
