Mercedes-Benz AG has outlined its plans for producing its next generation of electric vehicles. Also, the carmaker has plans to phase out some of its cars in an attempt to focus on high-end more luxurious models. Under this revised production strategy for new generation EVs, Mercedes-Benz has decided that its Sindelfingen, Stuttgart factory will produce vehicles based on the electric architecture being developed for its high-performance AMG division. This factory already produces the EQS, the electric version of its flagship S-Class model.

Joerg Burzer, Mercedes board member responsible for production, said that the company is ready for the rapid scaling of electric vehicle volumes. “With the new production set up we are further increasing our flexibility and efficiency and securing the future of our locations," he further added.

The revised production strategy comes as European Union countries endorsed a push to eliminate carbon emissions from new cars by 2035, effectively spelling the end of the internal combustion engine. All Mercedes-Benz factories are set to produce electric vehicles into the early 2030s.
