This week-end, during Mercedes-Benz TechDays, the manufacturer will showcase its complete line-up for the first time.
Mercedes-Benz doesn’t hide its ambition to lead in the segment of electric cars with three vehicles already produced under series-production conditions:
Vito E-CELL van.
In addition to this serie the Smart Fortwo ED is produced since November 2009
The line-up is based on the E-Drive modular system, which allows identical parts to be used in a wide range of different vehicles and therefore the release of standard-production electric cars to market quickly while achieving optimum cost efficiency.
The company has delivered further exciting prospects for environmentally-compatible electric mobility – on four or two wheels – in the form of the Concept BlueZERO, the super-sporty technology platform SLS AMG E-CELL, and the innovative smart escooter and ebike concepts.
Dr Thomas Weber, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG with responsibility for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development said. "The success of e-mobility stands and falls on customer acceptance, which essentially depends on three factors: everyday practicality combined with driving enjoyment, economic efficiency, and a charging and refuelling infrastructure for power and hydrogen. This is why we adopt a comprehensive approach to this topic, the aim being to offer a convincing, complete solution."
