Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen to produce the first series model of the new generation of electric carsGermany – Mercedes-Benz says the first production model of the new EQ product brand will be produced in Bremen by the end of this decade. The production model will be based on the EQ show car – an electric vehicle in the look of a sporty SUV Coupé, which was presented at the Mondial de l’Automobile this year.

The company aims to have over ten all-electric vehicles in its portfolio by 2025, with the new electric vehicles being built within the existing global production network. The battery for the new electric vehicle will be developed by the Daimler subsidiary ACCUMOTIVE and produced in Kamenz (Saxony).

Bremen currently builds ten different models and is the lead plant for the C-Class, directing the worldwide production of the highest-volume model series in the plants at Tuscaloosa/USA, Beijing/China and East London/South Africa.
