Please don’t throw away your rechargeable AA batteries; there is a new use for them. The newly introduced luxury sedan – Mercedes-Benz AA-Class, is powered by 9648 AA batteries. This zero-emission Mercedes-Benz only gets up to 52 mph. It can give Tesla Model S a run for its money, at least in City driving.
What’s more surprising is that Mercedes-Benz uses the C-Class W204 chassis for their new electric car. This Mercedes-Benz seems to have a lifetime drivetrain warranty which you don’t get with any other Mercedes-Benz. That said, you don’t get a warranty on the AA batteries.
This new use of AA batteries is changing the electric car world. It looks like Mercedes-Benz AA-Class is going to be Tesla’s main competitor.
Thankfully, the AA-Class only exists on Saturday Night Live sketch by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, pretending to be the spokeswoman for the new Mercedes AA Class.
Watch the hilarious clip to see what an AA Class would look like.
