    Any reason why the electric range is so minuscule? Guess it's not what the average AMG owner (enthusiast?) cares about, but at the same time, not sure they're big 4cyl guys either.

    It has a tiny 6kWhr battery or some nonsense.

    It has electric only to check a box, not for serious use.

    LOL @ 4654 lbs this thing weighs more than most SUV's. This car is an answer to a question nobody asked.

    I might be the only person that asked. Ironically, I don’t want a sedan right now.

    I refuse to participate in that inside joke because, frankly, it is not inside enough. It's got fetch-itis. As far as its level of funny inside joke, it suffers from its own self-description.

    Shitposting is an art, and the moment it appears you are trying too hard, it falls flat.
    Call it a hunch but I can’t see you participating in any Ridgeline humour either.
    I like neat cars.

    but 0-60 in 3.3 still dang fast
    Until you get into arguments with Tesla model S guys bragging about their 2.2s or whatever. They’ll tell you 3.3 is slow.

    the discussion of performance is largely pointless nowadays.

    I think you owe it to Mercedes to follow through on this seeing they built it just for you. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has seen over and over on car forums where people claim that they will buy it if the automaker makes it only for nobody to follow through when they finally make it.

    It wasn't long ago anything clocking in under 4 seconds 0-60 was considered extremely fast. Now there are SUV's with sub-4 second times. 3.3 seconds isn't slow by any means but seems a little slow for that horsepower rating even with it weighing as much as a full size pickup truck. The M3 xDrive is clocking in under 3 seconds 0-60 with just over 500 hp and it's not exactly a lightweight.

    Seems like a great car for someone who really wants a Tesla but doesn’t want a Tesla.

    It’s no more hideous than the rest of the 4 series so that’s a plus?

    Not sure why everyone is shocked at the curb weight. All the german bois are getting ready to have big electric offerings.. need to start testing their suspension configurations out in earnest

    I haven't seen it put any better than this. If I ever looked at owning one that would be the exact reason.. I'd never own a tesla

    This phrase has always irked me. Since when did manufacturers not sell every car they make?

    It’s not like they build 20,000 AMG’s and crush 5,000.

    Accurate.

    Was price mentioned? Will this be a 140k C?

    Just speculation I think. I imagine OTD 140 will be possible with some configs for day one deliveries.
