Daimler AG plans to collaborate with Robert Bosch GmbH (Bosch Group) to create a revolutionary electric motor for Mercedes-Benz EV. According to the plan, the production will begin in 2012, and the electric motor will be used in Mercedes-Benz and Smart electric cars of 2012. This cooperation is also to precede the BMW which is about to produce electric vehicle in 2013.
Indeed there have been no further details about this project. However, we expect a car that will use the electric motor is a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell or A-Class E-Cell. This cooperation is the commitment of both parties to maintain the relationships that had long been intertwined. In addition, this cooperation is expected to expand electric vehicle invasion in Europe.
Hopes soar with this partnership; the development of electric vehicle can run faster. Joint activity is planned to be done in two places, Stuttgart and Hildesheim.
Daimler AG and Bosch Group are two companies that are well known in the automotive business. Bosch Group is famous as a supplier of technology and services for automotive manufacturers. While Daimler AG has had more than 20 years experience in developing electric vehicle. We all would not wait for Mercedes-Benz EV sliding on the streets of our cities and become our favorite rides.
