Mercedes teases electric car concept debuting in Paris

Mercedes-Benz has been offering electric cars for several years but these have all been niche products limited to a handful of markets.

The list includes the Electric Drive versions of the Smart ForTwo, B-Class and SLS AMG.

With Tesla [NSDQ:TSLA] demonstrating that there’s serious interest in mainstream electric cars, the major automakers are now racing to offer rivals.

And we’re scheduled to receive a look at Mercedes’ first Tesla rival at the 2016 Paris auto show, which gets underway Thursday, September 29. That look will come in the form of a concept, teased today in a new video.
