Mercedes-Benz Announces Electric Platforms Only From 2025

All segments will offer EV by next year

  • Benz ready to go all EV once markets allow

  • No new ICE platforms after 2025


Mercedes-Benz has once again expanded on its plans for turning the brand electric. Today’s announcement said that in 2025 the brand will launch three new electric-only architectures, and will launch no more internal combustion platforms after that year. The automaker says it will be ready to go all-electric at the end of the decade, with one important caveat.

“Where market conditions allow,” Mercedes says, framing the announcement. It’s an important one in a sea of upcoming electrification announcements because it acknowledges that petrol and diesel will still be necessary for some segments and in some countries and regions. Still, this is an important move for Benz.

By next year, the automaker says it will have battery electrics in every segment it serves, and from 2025 will have an EV alternative for every model in the company line.

“The EV shift is picking up speed – especially in the luxury segment, where Mercedes-Benz belongs,” said CEO Ola Källenius. “The tipping point is getting closer and we will be ready as markets switch to electric-only by the end of this
decade.”

The three new architectures will be called MB.EA, covering medium and large passenger cars, AMG.EA for performance AMG models, and VAN.EA for vans and other commercial vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz is planning eight factories to produce more than 200 GW of battery cells annually, on top of nine already planned plants. The company’s next-gen battery packs will be more standardized and suitable for nearly all of the company cars and vans.
