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

My phone already charges intelligently..

If you plug it in during the day, it knows you want full charge asap and goes to 90% in about an hour (then does the last 10% more slowly). For night charge it learns from (presumably) your alarm settings and your activity, and charges much more slowly, targeting 100% for when you get up (I guess this is to help battery longevity/cut heat build up etc). Shouldn't be hard to make an EV do the same based on learning your normal commute/usage patterns.
