Mercedes-Benz Gears Up to Launch Electric C-Class Next Year

Mercedes-Benz is gearing up to introduce an all-electric version of its C-Class sedan. The new EV model is currently being tested in the snowy landscapes of Sweden and is expected to hit the market next year, in 2025.

Design and Features of the Electric C-Class

The upcoming electric C-Class is designed to stand out with its modern and distinctive elements. It will feature unique LED lighting, a sculpted grille, and a sleek overall silhouette that differentiates it from traditional combustion-engine models. Inside, the car will boast the latest Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, which includes a large touchscreen, voice control and comprehensive smartphone integration. Additionally, it will offer advanced driver-assistance systems potentially including autonomous driving capabilities.

Performance and Practicality

Equipped with a sophisticated battery system, the electric C-Class aims to offer a significant driving range on a single charge, making it practical for daily use and longer journeys. This aligns with Mercedes-Benz's commitment to combining performance with eco-friendly technology.

Dedicated EV Platforms and Pricing

Mercedes-Benz is preparing for a major electrification shift by developing three dedicated EV platforms:

  • MB.EA: This modular platform will support medium to large-sized passenger cars.
  • AMG.EA: Focused on high-performance AMG models.
  • VAN.EA: Aimed at electric vans and light commercial vehicles.

These platforms expected to debut by 2025 are designed to optimize electric vehicle architecture rather than adapting existing combustion engine frameworks. The electric C-Class, likely competitively priced, is part of Mercedes-Benz’s broader strategy to offer an electric version for every model in its lineup within the next few years, catering to an increasingly eco-conscious consumer base.
