Mercedes will reveal 8 new models including the electric E-Class later this year

At the IIA Mobility 2021 - September 7-12

Mercedes-Benz will essentially build an entire (parallel) line-up of electric vehicles to provide an alternative for their ICE equivalents. Apart from the EQC, which was the brand's first attempt at an EV, you can now get the EQA, an electric alternative to the A-Class/GLA, and the EQS, which is basically the electric S-Class, and - a few months from now - the EQE and the EQB.

The EQE, as the name suggests, is a battery-powered alternative to the E-Class and it is going to debut at the 2021 Munich Auto Show, officially known as IIA Mobility, scheduled to take place from September 7-12.

Mercedes says it will reveal eight new models, including five EVs, using the various sub-brands under the manufacturer's umbrella: Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-EQ, Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach and Smart.

Apart from the EQE (above), the German auto maker will introduce the EQB and three more EVs - all of which are going to be marketed as Mercedes-EQ models - a new MPV and a "high-performance hybrid", which will almost certainly wear the new 'E Performance' badge (part of AMG), and we know there's going to be new Smart, a new S-Class Guard and a new C-Class All-Terrain.

  • As an enthusiast, I seem to be losing interest for new cars and teetering towards classics with almost every new announcement. EVs are taking centre stage for many of the wrong reasons, increasingly heavy, ugly and large cars to accommodate new and often unnecessary driving asssists and data stealing infotainment systems. Contrary toopular opinion, this isn't really a great time to be interested in cars from my perspective.

  • On one hand from a manufacturing perspective, it’s smart to have one dash for almost all models. But from a design perspective won’t it make it feel like they are all the same inside? We will see. Maybe their EVs will just be a configuration you order online like building a laptop. I guess that’s the way we are heading since Tesla.

    • when you look back at the S-Class, E-Class and C-Class from 10-15 years ago, it's easy to see how they were drastically different, weren't they? Now, they look exactly the same and you need more than a minute to understand which is which, and...
