Yeah I got the promo for that too.
Seems every man and his dog builds one.

Samsung SDI
Soalr AUS
Altair Nano
LG
Panasonic
Saft
Toshiba
EV Works ;)

Basically anybody that deals in big battery quantities has or is releasing one.
So Battery manufacturers, EV builders, solar industry.

Still If I was managing Merc I would have fired the designer for making it look like a shiny Bunny king rubbish bin.
Bunny King BIN Image
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

Nissan

Yep so you can get them from the corner store now...

Think about how many spare batteries there will be for BESS when the first lot of production ev batteries get replaced.
They'll be everywhere.
People could do low range conversion really cheap too.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
