referring to Mercedes-Benz had already committed to launch 10 new electric vehicle models within the next decade, but now it’s looking to launch them by 2022, which is at least three years earlier than it had previously discussed.

The electrification efforts also help with long-term goals, including fielding reliable autonomous vehicles and fleets.
Mercedes sees the shift to electric as a more urgent one than it anticipated, and wants to lead, rather than follow as the industry makes this shift.

Last year, Mercedes-Benz unveiled its Generation EQ concept to preview the new electric vehicle that it plans bring to market by 2020.
The Volkswagen scandal is seemingly unrelenting , and Renault FCA , and even Mercedes are facing their own diesel probes.
“Among development teams, especially in diesel, there are signs there’s less to do as electrification is starting to have an impact,” says Daimler supervisory board member Roman Zitzelsberger.
Whether it’s a reaction to emissions concerns or a genuine desire to get cleaner, more technologically advanced cars in the hands of customers, Mercedes is on board, and those new offerings will be here sooner rather than later.
