Mercedes will Start Fourfold the Share of EVs and PHEVs in its 2020 EU Deals

Europe had set some limits for vehicle emission, and Mercedes is facing some challenges to meet the 2020 and 2021 targets. Mercedes-Benz vehicles need to get below 95 g/km of CO2 (with 95% phase-in for 2020) to avoid paying steep fines.

The automaker sent an e-mail to the Electrek team, saying that they “plan to quadruple the share of plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles in total sales in 2020 (…)” and “The [quadrupled percentage of sales] is linked to a further increase in the company’s own battery production.

Batteries for electric vehicles will be manufactured in nine plants at seven locations on three continents.” “There will be another all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQ model, which will be produced in Bremen. By the end of 2022, we will have introduced more than ten all-electric vehicles.”

Mercedes will produce in its Bremen factory vehicles such as the EQS sedan, EQB subcompact crossover, EQE C-Class-sized car, EQV minivan, or even the Smart EQ. The range of its cars would “include numerous variants with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and 48-volt technology.”
