Mercedes-Benz just confirmed its electric vehicle (EV) roadmap for the next calendar year. This ambitious plan includes six new models, including the flagship EQS that complements the newly-redesigned W223 S-Class Sedan, the crossover (SUV) variant of the EQS that complements the X167 GLS-Class that came on the market last year, and four other crossover and sedan models.

New EV Architecture

The new EQS will debut Mercedes' new custom modular EV platform, to be shared across the company's future luxury and executive EV models. It is designed to be scalable in every aspect, including variable wheelbase, track width, and battery size.
Beyond the first model to be released on this new platform, the EQS full-size luxury sedan, Mercedes also plans three further models: The EQE executive sedan corresponds with the W213 E-Class, which has just received a facelift this year. The EQS crossover SUV corresponds with the X167 GLS-Class, and the EQE crossover that corresponds with the W167 GLE-Class, which was redesigned in the 2019 model year.

EQC's Little Sisters

Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz will also introduce two further EVs in the compact / mid-size segment that expands the legacy of N293 EQC to the mainstream.
The EQA and EQB electric crossovers will be based on Mercedes' MFA2 platform, which is shared with the W177 A-Class, the C118 CLA-Class, H247 GLA-Class, the W247 B-Class, and the X247 GLB-Class.
