Mercedes-Benz has announced a series of new electric vehicles based on a scalable architecture that will allow the company to adapt its production to different types and forms of vehicles. In the next few years, the automaker intends to begin production of six new electric vehicles.
Mercedes-Benz is expected to officially unveil its scalable platform next year, which will form the basis for all of the company’s electric vehicles in the coming years. In terms of specific models, production of the EQS luxury sedan is set to begin next year, which will become part of the automaker’s S-Class. In 2022, the first crossovers and SUVs of the same EQS series will roll off the assembly line.
The EQE sedan will be the new E-Class. At the end of this year, it is planned to launch mass production of the EQA compact SUV, and in 2021 – the EQB crossover. Thus, within the next two years, Mercedes-Benz will begin production of six new models of electric vehicles. It’s worth noting that the automaker is still hiding details regarding electric cars. We only know that the EQS model will be able to cover up to 700 km without recharging.
The announcement of the new electric vehicles came as part of the presentation of the future strategy of Daimler, the automotive group parent company for Mercedes-Benz. Among other things, it announced the intention to reduce operating costs by 20% by 2025, as well as reduce the range of cars produced. Lower costs will almost certainly result in further layoffs. More than 30,000 employees have left Daimler in the past few months alone.
