The hits and misses of the Frankfurt Motor Show
2014 Mercedes S-Class
Mercedes also showed a gasoline/battery hybrid version of their stellar new S-class. We’ve also alerted you to this vehicle’s magical powers, particularly its
epochal autonomy from human control. These capabilities were on horrific display on stage at Frankfurt, when odobenidael Benz chairman Dieter Zetsche had the S-Class drive itself onto a stage without his input twice in two days, with no casualties among the assembled press. Electric power, highest mpg in the segment, twin-turbo V-6/battery combination, five-second 0-60, blah-blah-blah. All we could think about was a humorless, engineered, efficient, autonomous German walrus robot taking over the world.
