Mercedes-Benz’s ancestor company, Daimler, has appear six new fully-electric EQ models for production, four of which will be congenital on the brand’s yet-to-be-launched EVA2 modular platform.
The new all-electric models are:
“The new bearing of electric cartage in the affluence and controlling articulation is based on a custom-developed architecture, which is scalable in every aspect and can be acclimated beyond archetypal series. The wheelbase and clue as able-bodied as all added arrangement components, abnormally the batteries, are capricious acknowledgment to the modular design. The agent abstraction is appropriately optimised to accommodated every claim of a future-oriented, battery-electric archetypal family. This agent architectonics makes it accessible to body Mercedes-Benz electric cars from saloons to ample SUVs,” Daimler said in a columnist release.
“The EQS will acquiesce barter in the affluence articulation to absolutely annual from all the advantages of an all-electric architectonics with annual to amplitude and design. With ranges of up to 700km (according to WLTP), the EQS meets the requirements on a accelerating alehouse in the S-Class articulation in this annual as well. At the aforementioned time, Mercedes-Benz charcoal affectionate to its compound for success in production, and designs its cartage and factories to be able to body altered models flexibly on the aforementioned assembly lines. The electric cartage additionally use beat cross-sectoral technologies from Mercedes-Benz such as, for example, the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) ascendancy and affectation arrangement or the active abetment systems.
“The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS abstraction car provided pointers to the accelerating architectonics of the advancing EQS in September 2019. The buried prototypes ability testing are additionally anticipation key architectonics appearance that are advocate for the affluence articulation such as the cab advanced architectonics or the coupé-like ‘one-bow’ styling. However, added capacity of the accelerating architectonics of the models EQS SUV, EQE and EQE SUV acute for the success of the electric action abide a abstruse to the accessible for the time being.”
Daimler said Mercedes-Benz will, at the aforementioned time, abide to amaze the best acknowledged models.
“In accession to the EQC mid-size SUV (EQC 400 4MATIC, accumulated ability consumption: 21.3-20.2kWh/100km; abounding CO2 emissions: 0g/km) and the all-electric EQV bodies carrier (EQV 300, accumulated ability consumption: 26.4-26.3kWh/100km; accumulated CO2 emissions: 0g/km), barter in the bunched car articulation can attending advanced to two all-electric SUVs, the EQA and EQB. Their accelerating architectonics identifies them as associates of the all-electric artefact range. Assembly of the EQA will arise afore the end of this year,” the annual said.
Daimler’s all-electric advertisement came as admiral categorical affairs to carve 20% of operating costs by 2025 and acid cartage from the automaker’s lineup. The amount reductions will about absolutely aftereffect in added layoffs, afterwards Daimler appear it would cut 30,000 jobs over the Northern Hemisphere summer.
The aggregation wants to reposition Mercedes-Benz as a “luxury” brand, as against to a “premium” articulation area it has existed for decades. In added words, added like Rolls-Royce and Bentley than Audi, BMW, Jaguar and Lexus.
Mercedes-Benz about apprenticed to ability net carbon neutrality by 2039. It claims all-electric and constituent amalgam cartage will annual for added than 50% of its sales afore the end of this decade.
