Mercedes EQC U.S. Launch Postponed

Not sure I'd call either of Jag's or Audi's SUVs a "flop", but Mercedes decision to delay U.S. introduction of its EQC is at least disappointing, if not curious.

Quite disappointing, and I feel by delaying the EQC it just turns more customers to Tesla (or possible Audi or Jaguar). Jaguar has never really been able to compete with Mercedes, BMW or even Audi. Jag has always been regarded as a posh luxury vehicle, and even when their reliability was in the top 10 or even top 5 with CR for a while....many still talked about their infamous Lucas Electric systems, leaking gobs of oil, etc...

Hopefully MBZ is right about this delay, but not having a Tesla alternative available, just makes customers shopping for an EV to go to Tesla!!!
