Mercedes looking to become EV leader in the future

Mercedes looking to become EV leader in the future

As these new spy shots prove, Mercedes is going full throttle on their new electric vehicle architecture, called EVA, for its four upcoming electric car models of the new EQ range. EVA is based on Mercedes’ MRA (Modular Rear Architecture) platform, which debuted with the C-Class W205 model in 2014, regarding suspension, body and basic electrical components. 

It will be able to contain a battery pack of 400kg which will supply electrons to either a sole 300kW rear-mounted motor, or a 300kW rear motor and a 90 or 150kW front-mounted motor. Adaptive suspension, regenerative braking and e-torque vectoring will be available on all EQ models. Snapped in the never-ending lands of northern Sweden today was the EQ C, the first model to be released under the Mercedes EQ brand name. It’s a large GLS-type SUV – but smaller models and different types of bodies will follow. All will have an improved energy recovery system. Mercedes aims to sell 20,000 units per model with an average starting price of 95,000 Euros.

Currently Tesla remains the top-player in the EV market. Mercedes-Benz clearly is aiming to outperform Tesla and become the EV leader through its EVA platform. A big project of 2 billion Euros supports this objective. This “New Electric Vehicle” project involves building an additional China-only battery electric vehicle by 2020. The prototype snapped close to the Arctic Circle clearly shows the huge battery packs placed underneath the cabin.
