Marcedes Benz announced to accelerate of full electrification for its upcoming vehicles. The company says German manufacturing intends to gradually phase out fossil fuels and promote electric fuels. By the middle of this decade, all upcoming vehicles from Mercedes Benz will be fully electric.
Currently, Mercedes-Benz’s line-up includes only medium and large-sized vehicles with an electric option, which will enable even smaller vehicles to go fully electric in the coming times. for example-
- eVito panel van and eVite Tourer
- eCitan and EQT
In the second half of 2023, the company will introduce its next-generation eSprinter which will be fully electric based on Mercedes-Benz’s EVP platform. Which will be produced at three sites –
- Düsseldorf, Germany (panel van version only)
- Ludwigsfelde, Germany (chassis model only)
- Ladson/North Charleston, South Carolina
By 2025, Mercedes-Benz intends to launch a completely new all-electric modular and architecture called the VAN.EA for its medium-sized and large-sized vehicles.
Under a new venture agreement, the new facility plans to produce two models – the first will be based on the VAN.EA and the second will be based on the Revision Light Van platform.
The Düsseldorf plant, which is the largest Mercedes-Benz van production plant, is also set to produce a larger electric van based on the VAN.EA: open body style (platform for bodybuilders or flatbeds). The company intends to invest a total of €400 million ($402 million) to handle the new EV.
