GM Climate Change Study Report to the EPA which GM has been working on this since 1994.

GM's latest update and a rewrite of their carbon neutral goals has them achieving this in the 2020's time frame compared to 20 years later for MB. Seems MB is not the Best or Nothing, more nothing.

While Ford has not set Carbon Neutral goals, they did set reductions of 30% and achieved it 8 years early.

The S-class is the most successful full size luxury car the past 40 years.  Why would they change it?  The 7-series and A8 aren't EV only.  All S-classes will be mild hybrids at least, and that is more than a lot of other luxo barges can claim.

 

EQ S also has nothing to do with an S-class.  Different platforms.

“Most successful” but routinely outsold by said Tesla S over the last year or two.

GM’s report shows plenty of CO2 output in 2025.  When will GM have a 100% EV lineup, with 100% of factories that are powered by wind and Solar power?  And if they can pull that off before Daimler then great, that is less pollution.

What about the extraction process for all of these batteries? Isn't that the worst part of the process? 

In short... no.

The extraction process for lithium happens in some of the deadest places on earth. Salt flats.
