Mercedes-Benz (MB) targeted the question ‘what does climate change mean for the automotive industry?’ and unveiled their newest vehicle that marks the beginning of a new MB future.
“Our job now is to redefine the Modern Luxury of Mercedes. And there can be no doubt that desirable, contemporary luxury has to be sustainable – but also sustainably fascinating,” said Ola Källenius, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars who took the stage the conference. Ola went on to illustrate the plan for MB sustainability in the coming years, which included:
- A completely CO2-neutral fleet of new cars by 2039.
- More than 50% of new cars sold equipped with electric drivetrains by 2030.
- A CO2-neutral energy supply for almost all locations in Germany and CO2-neutral vehicle production in Europe by 2022.
- Electromobility will become the core business of Mercedes-Benz.
If the details were not enough for the press already, MB unveiled the Vision EQS which will be the catalyst for the next generation of vehicle innovation for the brand. The EQS takes digital technology intelligence to the next level while also being sustainable with its supply change being carbon neutral.
