2 – Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS
The transformation to electric mobility is well and truly under way at many automotive companies, and one of the fascinating aspects of it all is the approach being taken by each. Mercedes-Benz has created a special division called EQ. Already we’d seen the EQC SUV get presented, and at Frankfurt the German automaker gave us a taste of what its future all-electric sedans will look like with the EQS design study. The letter S in the name refers to the S-Class, of course.
3 – Volkswagen ID.3
Over at Volkswagen, the electric division goes by the name of ID, and the first honest-to-gosh production model to come out of it was rolled out in Frankfurt. The ID.3 basically takes the form of the company’s Golf, but it will offer an electric range of 420 km according to European testing results. We can expect that to be a little lower on this side of the Atlantic – if the model ever makes it to our market, that is – but one thing’s for sure, the model will generate a lot of interest – and sales – on its launch in Europe.
