LOS ANGELES — Mercedes-Benz plans to roll out 10 electric vehicles by 2022, beginning with a battery-powered compact crossover to arrive in the U.S. early next year.
But developing the market for the technology in the U.S. will be a challenge initially, Mercedes' new U.S. boss, Nicholas Speeks, told Automotive News at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
"There is no huge natural demand for electric vehicles in the United States," said Speeks, who most recently ran Mercedes' business in China. "People are perhaps a little bit hesitant in going away from something that they have known for the last 130 years with the combustion engine. There's some anxiety about range — where am I going to charge it, and how does it work?"
