Mercedes' expanded EV plans will include six new models
Mercedes has made it clear that its plans for electric cars will go well beyond first vehicles like the EQC. The German automaker has outlined its expanded EV plans for the near future and is promising six new models that will arrive in relatively quick succession. At the top end are the EQS (shown in the middle), a 2021 parallel to the S-Class with a range of up to 435 miles and an EQE business sedan (right). Both will have SUV equivalents for those who want more space, although at least the EQS SUV (left) won't be ready until 2022.
No, you don't have to pay such a high premium just to get rid of internal combustion engines. Mercedes will start production on the EQA, an EV counterpart to the GLA compact SUV, later in 2020. An EQB equivalent to the GLB SUV is planned for 2021.
The company still uses strong camouflage to disguise the new models, although this suggests that the Vision EQS concept provides "clues" to the design of the production EQS. All of the more upscale models will have a “Cab Forward” design with a coupe-like design.
This roster still leaves a few gaps. There aren't any lower-priced sedans that could directly compete against cars like the Tesla Model 3. However, there is little doubt that Mercedes is poised to make electric vehicles a permanent fixture in its lineup - they are not just niche options. Not that the brand has a wide range of choices. Many cities, states, and countries are hoping to ban sales of new internal combustion engines within the next 10 to 20 years. Mercedes will have to switch to an all-electric lineup soon, and the beginning of the transition should make sure it is really ready.
