Daimler head of development Thomas Weber seems to have recognized the signs of time and to want to put an end to the manufacturer’s inactivity in terms of electrification (you cannot currently buy the Smart ED and the B-series ED won’t sell), saying that Daimler is working on a “dedicated vehicle architecture for purely battery-electric vehicles.”
“The advantage that we see with hydrogen is the ability to cover our entire model line without offering any significant vehicle compromise that can be measured.”
