A Tesla Model 3 in Germany? Yes. And it just so happens to be driving around In the backyard of Mercedes-Benz.
Spotted on the roads of Sindelfingen (home to a Mercedes-Benz assembly plant), we can fairly safely assume this Model 3 was purchased by Mercedes in order to evaluate it and then do a full teardown.
Competitive vehicle analysis is not new. And it's not only Teslas that are being torn into. This is common with any new vehicle that hits the market.
A few months back, a white Tesla Model 3 was spotted in Germany, but that was near BMW's facility in Munich.
What we'd like to know is how much did it cost for Mercedes to acquire this electric car?
