700km on a single charge: Mercedes says it's in it for the long run

100kWh?

Ok, I'll buy that. That's about what - 10 litres of diesel? 2.19 gallons?

700km? That's around 437.5 miles

200 miles per gallon equivalent.

OK even with a power train at 90% instead of 30% efficient that's still pushing 66mpg equivalent.

Especially lugging that much battery around

But how long wail a fast charged battery last?

50 charges?

Before it's lost half its capacity?

I really don't see it.
