Daimler’s R&D chief Thomas Weber told Germany’s Wirtschaftswoche a big secret: Daimler will show an electric car at the Beijing auto show that opens in the last week of April. Of course, TTAC readers already knew the secret. But it is always nice to have independent verification.

Weber confirms that the car will be based on the old B-Class, that it will be built in joint venture with BYD, that it is targeted at the Chinese market, and that it will be sold under a new brand name.

You already know more. Namely that the new brand name will be ‘Denza’ for western tongues. That it will be either Tengshi or Dingcheng in Chinese, and that all logos currently under consideration look pretty awful.
