Aiming to take the lead in electric drive, Mercedes-Benz is getting ready to go all electric by the end of the decade, where market conditions allow. Shifting from ‘electric-first’ to ‘electric-only’, the world’s pre-eminent luxury car company is accelerating towards an emissions-free and software-driven future.
Mercedes-Benz has announced four all-new electric vehicles based on its upcoming large-car Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA). The EQS luxury sedan, with an electric range of more than 700 km (WLTP), is the first representative of this new dedicated architecture. It will be followed by the EQE – presented in world première at the IAA beginning of September, the EQS SUV and the EQE-SUV. In addition the sub brands AMG, Maybach and G-Class will go electric.
From 2025, multiple further models will be added to the electric vehicles portfolio on the second all-new dedicated electric platform, the Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture (MMA) designed for compact and medium-sized cars. All newly launched vehicle architectures will be electric-only and customers will be able to choose an all-electric alternative for every model the company makes.
