Mercedes-Benz has shared its plans for the future of its range

Mercedes-Benz has shared its plans for the future of its range, including a host of advanced new platforms designed with battery power in mind. With a renewed focus on luxury and exclusivity, ‘Entry Luxury’ will be the starting point for the line-up, consisting of four model variants positioned higher than current entry level models. Next year’s brand new E-Class will lead the way for the ‘Core Luxury’ segment alongside the C-Class, new electric models using the EQE’s ‘EVA2’ platform and then ‘MB.EA’ architecture also joining the segment.


The plan

However, it’s the ‘Top-End Luxury’ segment where the manufacturer expects the most growth: a 60 per cent increase in sales by 2026, in fact. This covers all AMG and Maybach vehicles, the higher tier EQ cars such as the EQS saloon and SUV, plus S-Class, SL-Class, G-Class and GLS models, and also limited edition and ‘exclusive collaboration vehicles’.

During the reveal of this range reshaping, Mercedes also confirmed a new programme of ultra-exclusive Maybach cars under a ‘Mythos Series’ banner.
