According to the company's strategy that is updated a few months ago, Mercedes-Benz has plans to launch three new all-electric vehicle platforms in 2025. It also aims to set up eight battery factories with partners as well. Mercedes-Benz is betting that the luxury segment of the automotive industry will shift faster towards electric cars than mass-market vehicles due to customers’ greater purchasing power, mentioned in a report by Bloomberg. The brand also expects that plug-in hybrid and fully electric cars will account for more than half of global car sales by 2025.
