    Mercedes-Benz is perhaps the biggest name in luxury cars globally, and for countless buyers around the world, it is a car brand to aspire to own. The German automaker has a reputation for superb build quality, excellent engineering, and the bragging rights that its founder Carl Benz invented the first production automobile. Today, Mercedes-Benz faces a new class of challenges as Tesla has become the aspirational brand for younger consumers. There is a slew of other EV hopefuls vying for the next generation’s aspirational vehicle’s mantle. Automakers have had to sink billions into new technologies and contend with a new crop of competitors in the critical Chinese market and around the world.

    Somewhat true.
    But Mercedes-Benz, more precisely Daimler, is a much more diversified auto manufacturer compared to Tesla. Cars, Vans, Trucks, Coaches etc. And Daimler is making a significant investment in R&D moving more towards a Software centric approach.
    But being a traditional German auto manufacturer, making big changes is hard and takes time.
