For the next few years, Mercedes is planning a big leap towards electromobility, promised significant changes with regard to new platforms and complete electrification of the car fleet before 2030. This means that the ambitious schedule is currently ahead of the competition from traditional manufacturers. On the way there, there will already be some new appetizers to discover at the IAA 2021. The story of electromobility at Mercedes Benz begins at the beginning of the 20th century.
Following the announcements by Volkswagen, Mercedes also wants to focus on the transformation process towards an electric car manufacturer in the coming years. According to the company, at least one battery-electric vehicle (BEV) will be offered in all segments as early as 2022. All new vehicle architectures will be electric as early as 2025, and an electric variant will then be in the portfolio for all models.
