8 Mercedes 100% electric by 2022

With no less than four launches next year and two more in 2022, Mercedes is firmly entering the race for electrification.

It is a real electric offensive that the brand is preparing for the star.  If it started tentatively with the EQC SUV in 2019, it is now working hard and plans to release models in spades, to reduce CO2 emissions within its range.  In addition to the EQC and the recently available EQV van, Mercedes' battery-powered offering will be enriched with four new models in 2021, then two more in 2022.

 From compact SUV to luxury sedan

 It is the small EQA which will open the ball at the beginning of the year, with an official presentation scheduled for January 20 and marketing in stride.  This electric cousin of the GLA will be produced on the same production lines in Germany, which also accommodate Class A and Class B, then exported to the majority of foreign markets where the brand is present, with the exception of China which will receive  models built directly on site at the Beijing plant.

 The first half of the year will also see the arrival of the luxury sedan EQS, which will complete Mercedes' premium offering.  It will be the first vehicle to use the new MEA platform dedicated to the brand's most imposing purely electric vehicles.  The EQE sedan also scheduled for next year will therefore certainly be based on it, but the EQB, also presented in 2021, should for its part take over the technical basis of the GLB, the manufacturer's 7-seater SUV.

 Two more SUVs in 2022

 Mercedes will not stop there, since two other models will complete the electric offer.  These will be the SUV versions of the EQE and EQS, which will be produced in the United States.  Not surprisingly, since North America will most likely be the market of choice for such large models, so it is not known, as of yet, if they will ever cross the ocean to come to  we.

 Mercedes will therefore benefit from 8 electric models in its range, all presented in the space of 4 years, proof that the brand hopes to lower its overall CO2 average in Europe, to stick with the directive which now requires manufacturers not to  exceed emissions of 95 g / km on average.  With 122.6 g / km according to the organization Jato Dyamics, the Daimler group is not at all in a good position, even taking into account the super-credit system which drops the figure to just under 110 g /  km.
