The AMG.EA will serve as a dedicated performance electric vehicle platform for the high-performance AMG products in the company's portfolio. Last but not the least, the VAN.EA platform will be specifically for electric vans and Light Commercial Vehicles. Mercedes-Benz is currently developing the Vision EQXX, an electric car with a real world range of more than 1,000 kilometres which will be unveiled in 2022.
