Mercedes-Benz Launching 6 EQ Models By 2022

Mercedes-EQ luxury sedans, crossovers coming

  • Four EQs to arrive early 2021

  • Will give Mercedes eight electric models

Mercedes-Benz says once again that it’s going big on EVs, but this time we have a little bit more detail. Six new Mercedes-EQ launches by 2022 the brand says, with a host of factories all around the world getting ready to build batteries, motors, and fully electric vehicles.

This announcement also marks one of the first times we’ve seen Benz uses the Mercedes-EQ monicker, much like how it uses Mercedes-AMG for performance cars and Mercedes-Maybach for those special models. Previously, announcements had called vehicles using a more traditional format like Mercedes-Benz EQS.

First up on the list is the Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan, the full-size luxury flagship is set to launch in the first half of next year, and it will be built at Factory 56 in Sindelfingen, Germany. The new S-Class electric will be built on the same production line as the gas version and the Maybach, but the facility has been optimised for 25 percent better efficiency.

Two new compact crossovers will launch as well, with the EQA set for January 20th, the first electric variant of the A-Class. It will be built in Rastatt and production has started on the compact already. An EQB, based on the B-Class, will launch in 2021 at a Hungarian plant for global market sales and with the automaker’s joint venture BBAC in Beijing for sale in China. This will be the first electric production vehicle from Hungary.

A Mercedes-Benz EQE will be built at a Mercedes plant in Bremen, as well as Beijing, starting in the second half of 2021. The midsize sedan will go along with the all-electric portfolios of both plants. Following that model will be the EQE SUV and EQS SUV, both built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and will arrive in 2022 built on the same line as their conventional and PHEV counterparts. That will make for a total of eight EVs for Merc in 2022, built in seven locations on three continents. Expect more to follow.
