Citing an "inside source" and offering up an "exclusive spy photo" (not pictured above), Autospies is reporting that the SUV in question is actually a Mercedes Benz ML-350. Wait, what? Who? Does that mean Daimler has been stepping out on a certain Californian electric vehicle company in which it has not only invested, but also contracted with for battery and controls tech? It would certainly seem a bit strange given that Tesla had to take the initiative, buy an A-Class and convert it themselves to show reps from the German giant what a great idea it was.
Perhaps that incident convinced some white collared higher-ups that the company needed to be a bit more proactive and this is the odd fruit born of that episode. To put an end to the speculation and satisfy our curiosities we called AMP and asked whether they could confirm or deny this rumor. They could do neither. And so, we leave it to you to weigh in with your considered opinions in the comments section below.
