EQS - Is this the way of the EV future in On Selling Options?

Post by Kimbo »

Mercedes is releasing the EQS in Europe with basic options and will provide options with "over the air" upgrades and annual subscriptions.

It is not clear if Mercedes will follow this model when they release in Australia; however, taking into account there is virtually no post sales on going business for EV manufacturers, is this the future sales model for EVs?

I'm keen how many Tesla owners purchased their EVs without the upgrade features and how many purchased these after the sale?

I note that Mercedes is also sneaking in other elements of the EQS to assure that post sale revenue such as not allowing the bonnet to be opened by the owner - I anticipate consumers are going to be conditioned into this model of selling EVs....
