Recently unveiled, the new generation of Mercedes C-Class promises a 100% electric version for 2024.
Following in the footsteps of the other models in the range, the most popular Mercedes is changing generation. In-depth review even if it is not immediately visible from the outside, the sedan inaugurates a plug-in hybrid version. An intermediate variation, since the 100% electric version is already announced.
Asked by Autocar, Markus Schäfer, Mercedes chief operating officer, said that the new dedicated MMA platform will create the 100% electric version of the Mercedes C-Class. The one that could not adopt the name EQC, will also differentiate itself from the wagon with its own style, to better mark its affiliation with the brand’s EQ range.
Smaller than the MEA platform on which the next Mercedes EQS is based, the MMA unit would limit space to house a huge battery. But it should have sufficient capacity and generous autonomy to try to rub shoulders with the references of the segment.
However, it will be necessary to be patient before seeing the arrival of the Mercedes C-Class on the roads: the platform should not be operational until 2024.
