The future for Mercedes-Benz is transitioning into a fleet of electric vehicles.
With electric vehicles becoming the norm for the automotive industry, many brands are not only entering with a new EV model, but beginning the switch for its entire lineup. Mercedes-Benz is getting ready to go all electric by the end of the decade, where market conditions allow. Shifting from electric-first to electric-only, the world’s pre-eminent luxury car company is accelerating toward an emissions-free and software-driven future.
By 2022, Mercedes-Benz will have battery electric vehicles (BEV) in all segments the company serves. From 2025 onwards, all newly launched vehicle architectures will be electric-only and customers will be able to choose an all-electric alternative for every model the company makes. Mercedes-Benz intends to manage this accelerated transformation while sticking to its profitability targets. To facilitate this shift, Mercedes-Benz is unveiling a comprehensive plan which includes significantly accelerating R&D. In total, investments into battery electric vehicles between 2022 and 2030 will amount to over $47 billion. Accelerating and advancing the EV portfolio plan will bring forward the tipping point for EV adoption. Check back in for more news on Mercedes-Benz’s push to an all electric vehicle lineup.
