Mercedes-Benz plans to launch more than ten electric cars by 2022 throughout all the segments- from smart to large SUVs. The company hopes electric models will represent a share of somewhere between 15 per cent and 25 per cent of total Mercedes-Benz sales by 2025. From 2020, the brand smart will only offer electric vehicles and thereby, it will be the first automotive brand of the world, which completely changes from combustion engines to electric drives.
