Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz and Smart will launch over 10 electric automobiles by 2025, and zero-emission automobiles will comprise between 15 percent and 25 percent of total Mercedes sales by then, President Dieter Zetsche stated.
Talking to journalists at the Paris Motor Show on Thursday, Zetsche stated the automaker was preparing a significant push in pure electrical automobiles due to advances in battery technology and greater customer acceptance of zero-emissions automobiles.
A new generation of electrical cars will be offered under the “EQ” brand, and based on a brand-new technical architecture cultivated specifically for battery-electric designs, the automaker stated.
In addition, Daimler has set up a digital innovations department called CASE to include connected cars, self-driving, car sharing and electrical cars.
Daimler stated it would introduce a peer-to-peer car sharing service, which would enable consumers to unlock and begin the vehicle using simply their mobile phone.
