The new year has been a roller-coaster for auto giant Mercedes-Benz. Despite being dealt heavy blows regarding sales, the automaker manages to keep its head up – churning out some of the best luxury automobiles on the planet. Top on the automaker’s agender is the rolling out of its electric compact Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) – the EQA and the S-Class before 2020 comes to an end.

The company also plans to increase its portfolio by creating an all-electric model of its van with the EQV. The line-up will showcase various categories of the 48-volt technology and drivetrains with hybrid pug-ins. The automaker aims to increase its plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle (EV) sales this year 2020. With that in place, it will proceed to increase its battery production. Plans are being made to ensure the manufacturing of their EV batteries in the company’s nine plants located in seven cities across three different continents.
The EQA will be launched by the end of 2020
In 2019, the German brand sold no fewer than 23,85,400 cars, higher than the 23,82,800 sold in 2018. In revenue records, Mercedes-Benz grew its numbers to 93.9 billion euros in 2019, against the 93.1 billion euros made in 2018. Despite the huge numbers, the automaker is not slowing down on producing new cars.
