Mercedes-Benz's new, more luxury-focused MMA entry-level platform will launch with an all-electric model in 2024, the company said.
The "electric first" platform, which can also accept internal-combustion engines, will debut a new generation of technology and set the standard for future Mercedes architectures to come, CEO Ola Kallenius said.
Mercedes briefly showed a silhouette of a compact coupe-styled sedan that will be built on the platform at the event. Analysts were also given a preview of a physical car, but no official images were released.
"This new MMA architecture ushers in a new generation of technology, both on the drivetrain side in terms of battery chemistry, efficiency. and the drivetrain itself," CEO Ola Kallenius told analysts at the group's capital markets day in Monaco. It will also use the new MBOS infotainment system.
