Video: Mercedes-Benz Closes The Development Of The Internal Combustion Engine
The Daimler concern, which includes the Mercedes-Benz brand, will cease development of internal combustion engines and devote all resources to the creation of electric power plants. Markus Schaefer, head of development at Daimler, told Auto Motor und Sport about this.
- Daimler intends to concentrate as much as possible on electric power plants and their components, including batteries, as well as on units operating on alternative energy sources.
- The latest developments of the Daimler concern are in-line six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. They are installed on all major Mercedes-Benz models (from the E-class to the GLS), and in the top 435-horsepower versions with the AMG 53 index, they are used together with an electric supercharger and a 48-volt starter-generator.
By 2022, there will be at least seven electric models in the Mercedes-Benz lineup: the EQA sedan and hatchback, the EQB and EQC crossovers, the EQS flagship sedan, the EQV minivan, Vito and Sprinter vans.
