It is presently fairly simple to determine an all-electric Mercedes-Benz mannequin from a gasoline-burning one. Not solely does the previous function aerodynamically optimized, albeit blob-like, bodywork, however it additionally bears a badge with the prefix EQ. By the top of subsequent yr, that can now not be the case for Mercedes’ new EVs, in response to a report in the present day by the German each day newspaper Handelsblatt.
The news, which has now been picked up by quite a few media retailers, is predicated on sources throughout the firm who declare the EQ branding will develop into redundant as soon as Mercedes switches to an electric-only lineup. It is sensible. For instance, there shall be no want for an electrical model of the S-class to be known as the EQS when there isn’t a gas-fed S-class.
After all, Mercedes’s full adoption of electrical fashions will nonetheless take a while, so we do not anticipate to see a full eradication of the EQ subbrand for some time. As a substitute, we imagine new electrical fashions will start adopting conventional nameplates throughout the subsequent couple of years or in order their current combustion-powered counterparts end out their present generations.
We reached out to a Mercedes-Benz spokesperson to substantiate the report in regards to the firm’s plans. We have now but to listen to again, however we’ll replace this story if we do.
