Julia Louis-Drefus: Isn’t it amazing how much of our world is powered by something so small [showing AA size battery that goes in TV remotes]. There are million uses for these little wonders. Well, make that a million and one.[Cut to video commercial clip of Mercedes car]
Introducing the Mercedes AA class. The first fully electric luxury sedan powered entirely by AA batteries.[Julia opens the boot of the car and it’s filled with AA size batteries.]
No more plugs. No more charging stations. Just 9,648 AA batteries. Zero emissions. Lifetime drivetrain warranty. And a top speed of 52 mph. Everything you’ve come to expect from Mercedes. On board satellite navigation. Bose stereo system. And ample trunk space to store extra batteries.[Julia opens the trunk. The trunk is also filled with batteries.]
And it is the only luxury sedan to receive the prestigious AA+ grade, from Batteries magazine. The Mercedes AA also ranks best in class in safety. Thanks to standard curtain airbags.[Cut slow motion video clip of car crashing to test airbags. As the car crashes, the AA size batteries are flying everywhere inside the car.]
A touch screen in the center console keeps you constantly informed of each battery’s power level. You’ll know battery is dying before it’s dead.
Console: In three miles replace batter. Replace- replace- replace– [showing many batteries that needs replacing]
Speaker Julia: You can replace them individually or all at once. With the ribbon release auto dump feature.[Julia pulls the ribbon and the batteries start falling out of the car]
The Mercedes AA class luxury sedan… [Julia opens the door to get out but the door is stuck because of the batteries that just came out of the car] [Julia gets out hardly]
