5 electric in 2022, a full range from 2025

A shower of new models, 40 billion invested, 8 new factories… Mercedes is working hard to get electric!

As many manufacturers have already done this year, Mercedes has just presented its electrification strategy for the next decade. And like many, the goal is clear: to be 100% electric in 2030.

To achieve this, Mercedes will accelerate its current strategy. The EQ range will therefore be extended toset of models. Today, the German manufacturer has five of these 100% electric models: the EQA, a compact SUV, theEQB and theEQC, two larger SUVs, the van EQV, and the luxury sedan EQS.

From 2022, we expect a berline EQE, an SUV equivalent to the GLE which should also be called EQE, and an electric counterpart to the luxury SUV GLS which will logically be called EQS. At the same time, the sedan of the same name is expected to receive, like the S-Class on which it is based, AMG and Maybach versions.

So there will still be some normal models for which there is a lack of electric versions: Class A and Class C for example. Mercedes does not specify whether derivatives of the latter (CLA and CLS among others) will also receive electric versions, but that would make sense. One way to extend a electric range

at a lower cost, once the platform is developed.

Four new platforms, 8 factories, and 40 billion euros

Regarding platforms therefore, Mercedes announced the development of 4 new technical bases 100% electric. The MMA EV which should equip small electrics will arrive in 2024. We then wait for the MB.EA, for medium-sized electrics (Class C and E equivalent), AMG.EA which will target the sports segment, and from.EA for utilities.

In return, Mercedes will not develop more new platform which will not be dedicated to 100% electric. The future – and rare – future thermal models will therefore be based on already existing platforms.

To follow this ambitious electric growth, Mercedes will invest more than 40 billion euros, and create 8 « gigafactories » manufacturing batteries, including 4 in Europe. Announcements on the location and technical partners of these future factories should follow shortly.
