Mercedes reveals plans to challenge Tesla as the premier luxury electric car brand

Last week Mercedes outlined its plans to conquer the electric car market, saying it will make electric vehicles in six plants across three continents while creating a "global battery network" to produce batteries for the vehicles.

Mercedes plans to launch its electric EQ brand with the fully-electric EQC SUV, which is set for production in 2019.

Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain said, “Our electric vehicles will be built in six plants on three continents. We address every market segment: from the smart fortwo seater, to the large SUV. The battery is the key component of e-mobility. As batteries are the heart of our electric vehicles we put a great emphasis on building them in our own factories. With our global battery network we are in an excellent position: As we are close to our vehicle plants we can ensure the optimal supply of production. In case of a short-term high demand in another part of the world our battery factories are also well prepared for export. The electric initiative of Mercedes-Benz Cars is right on track. Our global production network is ready for e-mobility. We are electrifying the future”.
