Many electric vehicles planned by the automaker for 2024 or 2025 are already in the final stages of development, reports Manager Magazin.
Mercedes-Benz, which is part of the Daimler concern, has already produced a number of electric vehicles such as the EQS. However, Daimler intends to accelerate its mid-decade electric vehicle rollout while phasing out fossil fuel versions as it revises its electrification strategy, Manager Magazin reported Thursday.
Many electric vehicles planned by the German automaker for 2024 or 2025 will be carried forward a year, and their fossil fuel equivalents will be removed from the lineup, the magazine reports, citing sources close to the issue. According to media reports, Daimler CEO Ola Kallenius would like to announce changes in strategy ahead of summer break this year.
A Daimler spokesman declined to comment on the post.
As a reminder, the Mercedes-Benz press service announced in March that the company will accelerate the transition to electric vehicles, but did not provide details on how quickly the lineup will switch to electric vehicles.
Note that several automakers have announced firm plans to switch to all-electric cars. Volvo, for example, says all of its cars will be electric by 2030.
The European Transport and Environment (T&E) group said this week that some automakers, including Daimler, lack ambitious targets to phase out fossil fuel vehicles.
