Mercedes-Benz will continue upping its EV game as much as possible in order to meet its goal of being all-electric by 2030.
The German manufacturer recently revealed intentions to build its own high-powered EV charging network by the end of this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Mercedes-Benz is advancing this aspect of its all-electric plan in North America by assuring easy and quick charging for existing and future EV owners. The goal is to build more than 10,000 high-power charging stations across the world, including in North America, Europe, China, and other major markets.
Mercedes-Benz, according to a press release, is now enabling pre-booking options for charging stations directly from their vehicles. Mercedes-Benz is also working to expand its charging network so that all automakers may use its quick charging stations for electric vehicles.
The emphasis is on renewable energy, and the initiative will begin this year with the construction of charging stations across the United States and Canada. Other parts of the world will follow suit. Mercedes-goal Benz’s is to develop a charging network in key markets before transitioning to all-electric vehicles in a decade. The firm stated at CES that it will join with MN*, one of the major solar energy and battery storage owners and operators in the US, and ChargePoint, a prominent EV charging network technology company, to begin the charging rollout across North America. By 2027, the plan is to have over 400 charging stations across North America with over 2,500 high-power chargers.
