EXIT - the global automobile manufacturer's electric car offensive

The planned innovations in the Euro 7 standard from 2025 is a challenge for all global manufacturers. In the first half of 2021, most manufacturers have already set their exit scenarios from the internal combustion engine with a specific date following the announcements made in recent years. As a discontinued model, the combustion engine will only be of interest to car markets without clear specifications for the manufacturer.

All new vehicle architectures will be electric as early as 2025, and an electric variant will then be in the portfolio for all models.

Mercedes-Benz EQC - tradition meets digitization

When it was launched in September 2018, the push button for electrifying the car fleet was pressed at Mercedes-Benz. After the very cautious developments in the B-Class, a competitive SUV for the medium-haul range was the focus of the electric future. With the Mercedes-Benz EQC, the developers modified the GLC platform by installing two electric motors on the front and rear axles and a battery in the underbody. The design is more modern, but takes on the typical presence character of the GL models.
