Default Mercedes PHEV Move Only Prolongs an Inevitable Problem

Mercedes Benz's PHEV move is disappointing, but why do carmakers insist on PHEVs? There are three reasons for it.

Mercedes Benz recently announced it is pulling the plug on its entire present PHEV lineup to replace it with longer range PHEVs. I actually find this disappointing. Here is why.

What Mercedes Benz and other car makers need to do is pull the plug on their entire PHEV lineups period, and replace them with a full line of battery electric vehicles called BEVs. But like most car makers they’re hesitant to do this for a variety of reasons which adds not abates the problem. Unfortunately you will soon see the end result of this decision in just a few years when you’re waiting at a charging station with your BEV while someone with a PHEV who doesn’t need to recharge as urgently as you do, is in front of you. Let me explain what I mean.
