Mercedes-Benz has announced several new electric vehicles and teased the upcoming new EQE and EQS SUV.
The German automaker has had a slow start in electrification with the launch of the EQC electric SUV last year, but things are about to ramp up over the next 12 months.
Now Mercedes-Benz announces several 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.”
The German automaker has released a new video of the testing of the new camouflaged prototypes:
The EQS will feature a brand new all-electric architecture from the German automaker.
Christoph Starzynski, Vice-President Electric Vehicle Architecture at Mercedes-Benz and responsible for the EQ vehicles, commented:
“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”.
