Default Mercedes-Benz outlines its Electric Car roadmap

Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will go all-electric by the end of the decade.

The company stated that by 2022, it will introduce battery electric vehicles (BEV) across all segments. Further to this, from 2025 onwards, all newly launched vehicles architectures will be electric-only and customers will have the option to choose an all-electric alternative to every model the company makes.

To help facilitate the shift to becoming an EV-only brand, Mercedes-Benz will be investing a total of € 40 billion between 2022 and 2030. This is expected to help the brand significantly accelerate its R&D and advance its EV portfolio plan.

In 2025, Mercedes-Benz plans to introduce three new electric-only architectures - MB.EA, AMG.EA and VAN.EA. The first platform will be used on all medium to large-sized passenger cars, while the AMG.EA will be a dedicated performance EV platform for its AMG customers. The VAN.EA will be developed specifically for electric vans and light commercial vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz also announced that the company plans to set up 8 Gigafactories for producing cells, together with its partners around the world. This is said to be in addition to the 9 manufacturing plants dedicated to building battery systems.

The German carmaker will also set up "Plug & Charge", which will allow customers to plug-in, charge and unplug their EVs, without hassle. The new Plug & Charge network will go live alongside the market launch of the EQS, which is slated for later this year.

Mercedes-Benz is also developing an all-new electric car - the Vision EQXX, which is claimed to offer a real-world range of over 1,000 km. Its world premiere is scheduled for 2022.

Just for reference, the Daimler Group reported about 150 'Billion' Euro revenue in 2019-20 year.

It's incredibly hard to build an ICE car within euro 7 emission standards, we will be seeing similar statements from all major European manufacturers. I guess 2030 will be the last for ICE cars in Europe.

'Gigafactory' - the constant use of this word just goes to show how much of a benchmark Tesla is and its CEO is in terms of all things EV.

If I was MB, I would have not used that term in the press release - even if its commonly understood to mean something. On the other hand, for me and checked with a few friends yesterday, Gigafactory alludes to the factories Musk is setting up everywhere.
