A luxury car manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz, is throwing their hat in the ring: they are releasing a new sub-brand which will include 2 EV SUV’s and 2 EV Sedans. While there are few details about the actual vehicles at this time, this may likely be a response to the push by similar luxury car manufacturers such as BMW releasing their own EV models.

However, one of the most interesting things about this push that they are planning to release an all-electric heavy duty truck in the coming decade. There are no currently existing alternatives to fossil-fuel based vehicles for transport trucks, so this might be the first major step to help industries switch over to EV’s.
