  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Daimler’s Tesla Fighter Is Taking Shape

Recommended Posts

Mercedes EV architecture

-

At the Paris auto show this September, Mercedes-Bnez will officially introduce the electric-vehicle platform designed to underpin an upcoming crossover SUV that’s tasked with taking on Tesla—and, subsequently, will lead to an entire family of battery-electric vehicles.

-

-

Details are scarce, but our sources hint at a crossover SUV sized about the size of the GLC-class but with an entirely different, more futuristic design. It will be fitted with electric motors both up front and in the rear, thus offering all-wheel drive. Combined power should be comfortably above 300 horsepower—perhaps well above, as people with knowledge of the project rave about its acceleration.

-

Fitted with a lithium-ion battery pack, the new model is designed to travel up to 310 miles on a charge, making the vehicle suitable for more than just commuting. Fast-charging capability is part of the package.

-

Components from the modular electric-vehicle architecture that underpins the new crossover SUV will be used by Daimler’s future plug-in hybrid and hydrogen-electric models as well. All except the Smart EV—it’s too compact to allow components-sharing with the Mercedes EV.

Daimler’s crossover EV will compete with the somewhat bigger Tesla Model X, as well as Audi’s upcoming e-tron quattro crossover SUV. Look for it to come to market in early 2018.
