Mercedes-Benz Unveils Personal Power Storage Plants

The established automotive industry took its time warming up to Tesla's approach to electric cars. But one of the company's new innovations, personal power supplies, has a fast follower: Mercedes-Benz.
The German automaker unveiled its sleek, portable power unit on Tuesday.
Crafted with the same kind of luxury design the automaker applies to its cars, the energy storage units have an energy content of 2.5 kWh each, and are also equipped to buffer the energy needs of households already using solar energy.
