Future Mercedes-Benz vehicles will be fully electric and software-defined vehicles that are capable of receiving regular over-the-air- software updates just like a smartphone. By 2025, all new Mercedes-Benz vehicle architectures will be electrical.
In order for the automaker to reach its goals, Mercedes-Benz is investing billions in electrification, software development, autonomous driving, connected vehicle technology and digital services. An important step towards that goal will be the company’s innovative Electric Software Hub at the Mercedes Technology Center in Sindelfingen, Germany.
The location, which was first announced in June of last year, is now officially open. It will employ around 1,100 cross-functional teams, including software, hardware, system integration and testing functions will be located under one roof to help create the electric and digital future of Mercedes-Benz.
