The electrification of the Daimler product range is an important component of our future strategy. This will result in ideal synergies in the future, especially for our Mobility Services.
There are many indications that the electric drive will replace the combustion engine in the future and become the standard drive. Daimler's electrification strategy clearly points the way and states that all Mercedes-Benz model series will be electrified.
Since 2017, smart has been the only car manufacturer in the world to offer its entire model range both with a combustion engine and fully battery-powered. In addition, from 2020 smart is planning to send its cars onto the road only with electric motors.
Mercedes-Benz is also working on its own vehicle architecture for battery-powered automobiles for all other model series. The absolute highlight in 2019: the Mercedes-Benz EQC*. The electric SUV is the first Mercedes-Benz model of the new EQ product and technology brand, under which the entire all-electric Mercedes-Benz fleet is to operate in the future.
*(EQC 400 4MATIC: Combined power consumption: 22.2 kWh/100 km; CO₂ emissions combined: 0 g/km, preliminary figures)
