The EQS marks the beginning of a brand new era of excessive efficiency electrical autos and can offer-a vary of greater than 700 km, primarily based on a excessive effectivity powertrain and advances in battery vitality density.
The Hedelfingen plant is accountable for the manufacturing of battery techniques for the EQS and upcoming EQE
Mercedes-Benz begins producing high-performance batteries for its all-electric luxurious EQS at its Stuttgart-Hedelfingen plant, forward of the sedan’s world premiere on April 15, 2021. The EQS marks the beginning of a brand new era of excessive efficiency electrical autos and can offer-a vary of greater than 700 km, primarily based on a excessive effectivity powertrain and advances in battery vitality density. Having built-in battery manufacturing seamlessly alongside current transmission manufacturing, the Hedelfingen plant has been reworked into an necessary a part of the corporate’s international battery manufacturing community.
The fast ramp-up of its international battery manufacturing capacities and focused enlargement of battery competencies by means of your complete worth chain are the important thing pillars of Mercedes-Benz electrical initiative – from fundamental analysis, cell manufacturing as much as batteries’ afterlife together with 2nd-life functions and recycling.
This in-house know-how and vertical integration is essential for taking part in a number one function in electrical autos. In addition to scaling up the EQS battery manufacturing, the Mercedes-Benz Drive Systems Campus Untertürkheim will particularly broaden its analysis and improvement actions within the area of e-mobility – by means of a campus for electrical and electrified drive systems- as introduced earlier this month.
Markus Schafer, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, mentioned, “The roll-out of our electric initiative is accelerating as we pursue CO2-neutrality. Our next all-electric model – the luxury sedan EQS – built on a dedicated electric platform is already in the starting blocks. The start of production of its high-performance battery systems in our plant in Stuttgart-Hedelfingen is therefore an important milestone.”
The Hedelfingen plant, as a part of the Mercedes-Benz Unterturkheim location (Germany) is accountable for the manufacturing of battery techniques for the Mercedes-Benz EQS, in addition to the upcoming EQE. The extremely advanced lithium-ion battery system is produced on an roughly 300 meter manufacturing line with greater than 70 manufacturing stations and with a excessive variety of automated in addition to guide steps. Quite a lot of parts together with as much as 12 cell modules and the so-called EE-compartment for the clever integration of energy electronics make up the EQS battery system.
