Mercedes-Benz unveils several new electric car prototypes

As it unveils many new electric car pre-production concepts, Mercedes-Benz reminds everybody that it is serious about electric cars today. In the next two years alone the automaker is planning to bring six electric vehicles into market.

With just the EQC electric SUV, which has itself had a slow introduction and staggered launch in North America, the German automaker has had a slow start in electrification to date.

But now Mercedes-Benz is getting ready in a major way to speed the rollout of electric vehicles. The automaker released a more comprehensive look at its intention to introduce six new EQ electric vehicles to market in 2021 and 2022 in a press release today:

  • Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant (Germany): Launch of electric luxury sedan EQS in Factory 56 in first half of 2021
  • Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant (Germany): Production of first all-electric compact SUV EQA started — also at Beijing plant (China) in 2021
  • Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét (Hungary): Decision to locate second all-electric compact SUV EQB. Production launch in 2021 — also at Beijing plant (China)
  • Mercedes-Benz Bremen plant: Production launch of electric EQE business sedan in 2021 — at Beijing plant soon thereafter (China)
  • Mercedes-Benz Tuscaloosa plant (USA): SUV variants EQS und EQE begin in 2022
