In a new announcement today, Mercedes-Benz released its plans for several new electric vehicles along with teasing the upcoming new EQE and EQS SUV.
Following the launch of the EQC last year, the next in line to continue the electrification of the German company will be the launch of the EQA electric crossover. The EQA electric crossover is expected by the end of the year. The Mercedes-Benz EQS electric luxury sedan is expected to follow launching in 2021 and will feature a new all-electric architecture from the company.
Vice-President of Electric Vehicle Architecture at Mercedes-Benz, Christoph Starzynski, stated “The EQS has already piled up far more than two million test kilometres from the heat of South Africa to the cold of Northern Sweden. The EQS will be the S-Class of electric vehicles. That is why it is undergoing the same demanding development program as any other vehicle that has the privilege of proudly bearing the three-pointed star. In addition, there were quite a few tests specifically for electric cars that cover important development priorities such as range, charging and efficiency”.
Mercedes-Benz said about the new electric vehicles “The camouflaged prototypes undergoing testing are also foretelling key design features that are revolutionary for the luxury segment such as the cab forward design or the coupé-like ‘one-bow’ styling. However, further details of the progressive design of the models EQS SUV, EQE and EQE SUV crucial for the success of the electric initiative remain a secret to the public for the time being.”
