some time Ago I talked about that Mercedes I was thinking in create a subbrand to welcome their coming electric vehicles. It would serve to compete against the BMW i and we can get an idea as to how it may be called. The mark of the star has registered a series of names and it seems that their electric models will carry the last name ‘EQ’. These vehicles would be included in a sub-brand whose name would be ‘MEQ’.

time there is nothing confirmed officially and are only assumptions. Keep in mind that Mercedes has registered in the register of patents a significant number of names. The mark is in possession of the terms EQA, EQB, EQC and continuing alphabetically until EQX. It also has ‘EQ inside’, ‘EQ boost’ and ‘Generation MEQ’. The latter could be used to advertise the new models.

What is clear is that Mercedes has made a strong bet for pure electric vehicles. Your first model of this generation could be a saloon that would be the name of the EQS and that would be a direct rival to the Tesla Model S. We may see this model as of next year, although would not enter the market until 2019. It would acquiesce on a completely new that is called EVA (Electric Vehicle Architecture).

The platform will be modular and may be adapted to develop several vehicles. There is talk that in the future will come from a smaller model up to some SUV. They will have to face up to new models that prepare other brands. Jaguar is working on an SUV coupé, Porsche has to its Mission And and Audi of a possible Q6 e-tron, in addition to an electric version of the A8. It seems that electric vehicles will occupy an important place in the next few years.
