Grover Cleveland

In 1893, President Grover Cleveland, facing an imminent vote on repeal of the Silver Purchase Act, disappeared for five straight days. When a trusted investigative reporter exposed the secret, he was fired and, with the help of Cleveland and his confidants, disgraced. Cleveland, whose campaign motto was “Tell the Truth,” went to his grave denying the incredible series of events that transpired during his absence. The truth wasn’t fully revealed until decades later. This story serves as a reminder that even the most honest men can be liars and hypocrites when the stakes are high. We are all flawed, and none more so than politicians who seek to gain power.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
