MERCEDES-BENZ THE FUTURE ELECTRIC RANGE IS UNVEILED – Autojournal.fr

As we detail here, Mercedes-Benz is entering a new turn in its history, based on a strategy for the future with six major pillars, the objective of which is the complete electrification of its models, including sub-brands.

The Stuttgart manufacturer announces the colors with the EQS. Presented with a range of up to 700 km (according to the WLTP *), it will be the first car in the S range to benefit from the EVA ('Electric Vehicle Architecture') platform.

This will serve as a working basis for other 100% electric vehicles, from sedans to large SUVs. One way for Mercedes-Benz to stay true to its recipe for success, based on a certain flexibility in the production of its various models.

Electric vehicles also use pioneering cross-industry technologies from Mercedes such as, for example, the MBUX ('Mercedes-Benz User Experience') control and display system or driver assistance systems.

The camouflaged prototypes under test (see photo) also herald revolutionary design features for the luxury segment, such as the front cabin or coupe-like "monocoque" styling. However, the details of the progressive design of the EQS SUV, EQE and EQE SUV remain under wraps for now.

2 million kms

Mercedes has not skimped on the means and the kilometers to perfect the reliability and efficiency of its system. Thus, tests of the EQS were carried out on all possible terrains, from Scandinavia to the Nardo ring, passing through South Africa, China and the USA, not to mention the Test and Technology Center. from Daimler to Immendingen.

"The EQS has already racked up more than two million kilometers of testing, from the heat of South Africa to the cold of northern Sweden," said Christoph Starzynski, vice president of electric vehicle architecture at Mercedes-Benz and responsible for EQ vehicles.

“The EQS will be the S-Class of electric vehicles. That is why it is subject to the same demanding development program as any other vehicle that has the privilege of proudly wearing the three-pointed star. In addition, there is has had a number of tests specific to electric cars that cover important development priorities such as range, charging and efficiency. "

Next year will therefore mark a turning point in the German manufacturer's long-term strategy with the introduction of its all-electric architecture. At the same time, the company will continue to electrify the most efficient platforms. In addition to the mid-size SUV EQC and the all-electric EQV minivan, two fully electric SUVs will make their debut: the EQA and the EQB.
