AutoComplete: Mercedes rolls out its electric eTruck in GermanyPlus: Maven brings the Bolt EV to LA, and Lotus builds an homage to James Bond.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. Mercedes is ready to deliver shipments onto electric avenue. The company is rolling out a small number of its Urban eTrucks in Germany ahead of a full rollout in 2020. They use three lithium ion battery modules that produce about 124 miles of range on a single charge. And can carry up to 28,000 pounds. Standard box trucks will be available, plus refrigerated and platform variants. Maven is set to electrify this city of angels. GM's car sharing outfit will bring 100 Bolt EVs to its Los Angeles fleet, with San Diego and San Francisco to follow. Maven users will be able to rent out the electric hatchbacks at an hourly rate, just like any other Maven vehicle. And for a limited time, charging will be free at any EVgo Freedom station. So don't be the jerk that drops the car off without any juice in the battery. Evora, Lotus Evora. In honor of the submersible Lotus Esprit in the Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, Lotus built this Evora Sport 410. It sports similar aesthetics, including a black stripe around the middle, and an old school Lotus badge on the B pillar. Inside, there's tartan plaid everywhere. The only thing Lotus forgot to do, was to make it amphibious. Maybe next time. Find more on these stories over at theroadshow.com, and we'll talk to you next week. [MUSIC]
