Mercedes is gradually converting its portfolio to fully electric vehicles. From 2025, there will only be new electric platforms from Stuttgart, in the same year they want directly three new architectures introduce:
● AMG.EA is reserved for the sports brand and is designed for particularly high performance.
● VAN.EA is the substructure for the next generation of electric vans and commercial vehicles.
No fixed date for the combustion engine farewell
These three models will become important in the coming years:
The development of electromobility is not bypassing a veteran either. With a study at the IAA 2021 in Munich, Mercedes showed how the electric G-Class is imagined in Stuttgart. The design is based closely on the icon, which has hardly changed so far. Also the Terrain skills are what you want to save into the new era, Locks, gear reduction and the like are retained – all-wheel drive is of course set! The good news: The The combustion version remains in the portfolio for the time being and should be offered in parallel.
As a 2 + 2-seater and with a classic soft top, the new SL is to be significantly sportier than its predecessor. So that it really works, AMG takes over the development directly. The AMG GT serves as a platform dispenser. Another novelty: the Roadster is being offered for the first time with the fully variable 4Matic + all-wheel drive. It is not yet certain whether the top model will get a four-liter V8 again. If so, it could be an electrified SL 73 e up to 800 hp bring.
The Tiguan competitor will enter the second round in 2022, and it will remain true to its looks. The design will be adapted, but big leaps are not to be expected. In the interior, the center console could, as in the S-Class, of one big screen be taken. Under the hood we expect the C-Class engines, so exclusively electrified four-cylinder. Accordingly, the manual transmission should also be abolished in the SUV, instead the 9G-Tronic automatic transmission is standard.
