Recall that in the Mercedes-Benz is also working on a new platform that is likely to get a EVA name. This truck will be the basis of at least four completely new electric models of the brand Рtwo sedans and two coupe. It is reported that the development of the new platform Germans invest about 2 billion euros, and its construction will involve a number of components from the modular MRA chassis, which built a model of the family C-Class and S-Class. The first of four electric vehicles will be the future mid-size crossover, the concept of which the Germans promise to show at the Paris Motor Show 2016. The production version of the electric car will become a direct competitor to the Tesla Model X. It is expected that when fully charged, the model will be able to pass up to 500 km. Mercedes-Benz will establish mass production of electric cars at the plant in Bremen, where also will be available a new version of crossover the GLC F-Cell, which has received a power plant on hydrogen fuel cells.
