The Frankfurt Motor Show 2019 is inching closer and Mercedes-Benz is making exhibition plans on sustainable solutions for the future of mobility. The EQV family will take center stage in Germany.
The new Chairman of the premium car maker, Ola Källenius, will explain what this strategy looks like and what it has to do with universal human needs at the Mercedes-Benz press conference, scheduled for the first day of the international motor show, on September 10th. It will be his first public appearance as the new head of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
Five workshops and the “Meet Mercedes” program will be available to guests all throughout the event in Frankfurt. Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management, Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales, will give the company’s take on the sales of the future and the newly developed booth concept, while Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management, Group Research & Mercedes-Benz Cars Development, will discuss the goals of the R&D division in a transforming industry.
A session led by Sajjad Khan, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars, CASE, who will explain the future of mobility and alignment with the CASE strategy is also scheduled. Renata Jungo Brüngger, Member of the Board of Management, Integrity and Legal Affairs, is next in line, to present the principles regarding the use of artificial intelligence at Daimler to the public for the first time. Jörg Burzer, member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain, will reveal the plans of Mercedes-Benz Cars and Vans.
The EQ family will take center stage at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019, as the EQV series production model is scheduled for its public debut. This is the list of the premieres that will arrive in Frankfurt next month:
Exhibited this past spring as a prototype at the Geneva Motor Show, the new electric model will be revealed in series production variant. It is the world’s first electric MPV and, similar to the conventional model, it can be configured with 6, 7 or 8 seats, in order to meet the demands of families, VIP transportation or cargo shipment.
Mercedes-AMG ONE is the name of the future hypercar of the company. The designation hints to the fact that the car will take over the technology of the Formula 1 racing cars. Only 275 such units will be built and sold for a sky-high price of 2.275 million Euros.
The all-new Mercedes-AMG A 45 and CLA 45 get the world’s most powerful 4-cylinder engine ever built for series production. The top variants of the two come with 421 horsepower, a figure reserved for the S models.
As expected, the GLE Coupe gets the design of the standard variant, but gets a descending roofline. The cab of the SUV coupe will also mimick that of the SUV revealed this year and also the engine range. The high-ride coupe will also receive the 48-Volt active suspension system.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLB is the company’s first compact SUV, capable of transporting up to seven people, thanks to its generous wheelbase of 2,829 mm. The access to the rear seats will be easily made as the second seats row comes with Easy Entry function.
