I hear you, definitely a valid take.

Merc is going to sell it as trickle down tech from Formula 1. Using the E-turbo, it is rather interesting tech to be honest. Here is a video describing how system works.

I can see the marketing already and the heavy use of the "EQ" name/branding when it comes to AMG - it's the basis for their EVs. Mercedes isn't wrong to do it but I would be extremely interested to see the reliability and durability for something that is based off of F1 tech.

You are right - sorry, my bad. The option code 711 is the way to go, feels fantastic and can't live without it.

The leaked pics of G87's front bumper suggest different headlight shapes for M cars could now be a thing (G20/G80 difference aside).
I want to know this also

I'm cool with 40 miles as it means most days I'd be on battery only and the weight from the battery pack isn't too much. I think a lot of people will be similar there.

As long as I have a V8 and a large fuel tank I'll be happy

Try an electric car as your daily with well over 200 miles of actual range

The money you will save will pay for the fuel to power your V8 and some

It's a win win

@ynguldyn

I have ordered my i4 M50 and cant wait for it to arrive! :-)

Thinking about changing out my X5 40e as well. Do you know if the iX M60 will have a bigger battery pack than the 112kwh in the i50? I read some roumour about a 120Kwh pack.

Thanks.

Any word on when the EU will get the 230i coupe and the M240i (rwd) will become available?
This is probably going to be fall 2022 at the earliest isn't

Congratulations.
In the next few weeks I will be attending an iX and i4 symposium and competition driving comparison. Looking forward to see how good the M50 is.
