Mercedes-Benz seems to be making every kind of GLC you can think of in the near future. From hybrids, to fuel cells, and now the addition of a fully electric model that will be called the ELC to debut in 2018. Was this the plan all along, or is this possibly Mercedes-Benz's reaction to the diesel scandal that has especially affected the German auto industry?
The report comes from Auto Bild and it states that a ELC and an ELA (based off of the GLA) will debut in 2018. The ELC-Class should cost about €50,000, while the ELA-Class should cost about €40,000.
No prototypes have been spotted or anything like that, so this is still in the realm of rumor, but it certainly fits with many of the announcements that we have recently heard from the company.
