The latest Mercedes-Benz CLA concept may not exactly be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s still a pretty cool little car. Aside from the sleek design and futuristic cabin, it also promises 466 miles of range, which should convert to a little less than 400 miles of range in EPA testing. The most controversial part of the design, though, is definitely the daytime running lights embedded into the grille surrounding an illuminated Mercedes badge, which unfortunately sounds like it will make it to production.
In fact, you can probably expect similar illuminated grilles to make their way into all future Mercedes electric vehicles. Speaking to Autocar, Gorden Wagener, Mercedes-Benz’s head of design, said the German automaker believes signature illuminated grilles will be the EV equivalent of a good exhaust.
