USA premiere new Mercedes-Benz EQC

At CES 2019 in Las Vegas the first Mercedes-Benz vehicle from the EQ brand is celebrating its US premiere. The EQC (combined power consumption: 22.2 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km, provisional details) symbolises the beginning of a new mobility era at Daimler. With its seamless, clear design and colour highlights typical of the brand, it is a pioneer for an avant-garde electric look while representing the design idiom of Progressive Luxury. With respect to quality, safety and comfort the EQC is the Mercedes-Benz among electric vehicles, and highly convincing in the sum of its attributes. These elements are accompanied by dynamic performance, thanks to two electric motors at the front and rear axles with a combined output of 300 kW. Thanks to an ingenious operation strategy, the EQC has a preliminary range of 450[1] kilometres (279 miles) according to the European cycle NEDC. EQ also offers comprehensive services with Mercedes me, and makes electromobility convenient and suitable for day-to-day motoring.

As the first Mercedes-Benz model under the new product and technology brand EQ, the Mercedes-Benz EQC has many trailblazing design details and colour highlights typical of the brand. Both inside and out, the EQC embodies the design idiom of Progressive Luxury. This arises from the combination of a previously unknown beauty, the conscious clash of digital and analogue elements as well as the seamless merging of intuitive and physical design.

By virtue of its muscular proportions, the EQC is classed as a crossover SUV. The extended roofline and window layout with a low waistline and the coupé-like roof recess at the rear visually position it between an SUV and an SUV coupé.

Mercedes-Benz maintains number 1 position in premium segment

Mercedes-Benz continues to be the leading premium automobile brand in terms of unit sales. In a challenging year, the company with the three-pointed star increased its global car sales to 2,310,185 units in 2018, its eighth consecutive record year (+0.9%), making Mercedes-Benz the best-selling premium brand in the automotive industry for the third time in succession. The new sales record in the car division of Daimler AG was driven in particular by the success of Mercedes-Benz in the Asia-Pacific region and its core Chinese market there. Worldwide, models including the SUVs and the E-Class Saloon and Estate were able to generate significant sales impetus in 2018.

Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars said that “In 2018, Mercedes-Benz was at the top of the premium segment in the automotive industry for the third year in a row. In a highly competitive environment, we also remained at the top from month to month, thanks in particular to double-digit growth in China and many new models that have delighted both existing and new customers worldwide. We will continue rejuvenating our portfolio systematically in 2019. We see the major successes in our core business primarily as paving the way for shaping the individual mobility of tomorrow.”

Mercedes-Benz completed its strongest-selling year also with the best quarter in the company’s history (595,098 units, +4.0%). In addition, a new December record was set last month with sales of 206,532 units (+6.7%). In 2018, Mercedes-Benz maintained its position as the premium brand with the most new registrations in many markets, and secured market leadership in markets including Germany, France, Russia, Switzerland, Poland, Portugal, Turkey, Denmark, Hungary, Romania, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Thailand, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, USA, Canada, Brazil and Argentina.

Mr Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing and Sales said that “With more than 2.4 million vehicles delivered by Mercedes-Benz Cars in 2018, we once again surpassed our own sales record – for the eighth time in succession. In addition, despite a challenging year, we maintained our position at the top of the premium segment. The excitement for our models and the loyalty of our customers spurs us on to continue giving the best in the new year. In recent months, the strong growth of the new A-Class has shown the impetus high-calibre innovations such as MBUX can have in the market. In 2019, more than 10 Mercedes-Benz models will inspire our customers with the intuitive operating concept of MBUX and its artificial intelligence not only in the compact car segment, but also in SUV segment.”

Geely says it has not sold Daimler shares - Report

Reuters reported that China's Geely Group said it has not sold any shares in Daimler AG, denying a Bloomberg report that the Chinese firm had slashed its 9.7 percent stake in the German carmaker by more than half. A Hangzhou-based spokesman for Geely told Reuters that "As a long-term investor, Zhejiang Geely Holding has not sold any shares. The Daimler shareholding remains unchanged.”

Bloomberg reported that Chinese billionaire Li Shufu's Geely had sold a 5.4 percent stake, citing people familiar with the matter, but that the new owners of the shares were not known.

The report comes as Morgan Stanley disclosed in a filing on Thursday that it had increased its Daimler stake to 5.39 percent from 0.34 percent on Jan. 4. According to Bloomberg, Morgan Stanley is holding the shares on behalf of others.

Li had picked up the 9.7 percent stake in Daimler in 2018, asking the maker of Mercedes-Benz cars to strike up an alliance to better counter the threat from upstart mobility companies.

His move rekindled German fears about high-tech know-how falling into Chinese hands and Daimler had initially balked at the prospect of an alliance, partly on fears it might alienate Mercedes' existing Chinese partner BAIC.

But the companies have remained in talks about areas of potential cooperation and in October announced they would set up a ride-hailing joint venture in China.

Mercedes wil nieuwe fabriek in Egypte bouwen

Gepubliceerd op 18 jan 2019 om 20:16 | Views: 176

STUTTGART (AFN/DPA/BLOOMBERG) - Het Duitse automerk Mercedes-Benz is van plan een nieuwe fabriek te bouwen in Egypte. Volgens moederconcern Daimler zal de fabriek met een lokale zakenpartner gebouwd gaan worden en zijn er succesvolle gesprekken geweest met de Egyptische regering over het voornemen.

Daimler ziet Egypte als een aantrekkelijke markt voor productie en ondersteunende dienstverlening en denkt dat de vestiging zal helpen het marktaandeel van Mercedes-Benz te vergroten. Het autoconcern gaat ook advies verlenen aan Egypte over onder meer elektrisch en autonoom rijden om zo het land te helpen bij mobiliteit en het verbeteren van infrastructuur.

In mei 2015 sloten Daimler en een lokale partner nog een montagefabriek in Egypte. De Egyptische president Abdel Fatah al-Sisi liet dan ook weten de nieuwe fabriek te verwelkomen.
Mercedes-Benz Cars considers car assembly in Egypt

Mercedes-Benz Cars has plans to start a new assembly plant in Egypt. Mr Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain said that “Egypt is an attractive and competitive location for production and supporting logistics. With the planned local assembly we are confident to be able to expand our market position. Furthermore, with our broad-based product portfolio, our electric initiative as well as our expertise in respect of modern mobility concepts, we are ready to support the Egyptian authorities in related projects.”

In order to optimally respond to market and sales potential, the framework conditions in all markets and regions are constantly monitored and the market strategy is aligned accordingly.

The passenger car assembly would be built by a local business partner. The planned localization effort is being developed in close collaboration with the Egyptian government and was further concretized in recent successful discussions between Markus Schäfer and the President of Arab Republic of Egypt H.E. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi in Cairo and with the Prime Minister, Mostafa Kemal Madbouly, in Berlin.

President of the Arab Republic of Egypt H.E. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said that “We welcome the decision of Mercedes-Benz to resume manufacturing and assembly of cars in Egypt, a step that reflects the improvement of the investment environment and the performance of business in Egypt, in the light of the implementation of the comprehensive economic reform program as well as the openness of Egypt to cooperate with the German company within the framework of its policies to develop the automotive industry in its various categories.”

There have been talks on important state infrastructure projects with the Egyptian government. With regard to the new capital in Egypt and the planned new “smart cities”, Daimler has offered its expertise in modern mobility concepts, electro-mobility and electric cars as well as autonomous driving. Detailed agreements have not yet been concluded.

Het Zuid-Duitse autoconcern Daimler gaat in Polen autobatterijen assembleren. De fabriek komt op het terrein waar Daimler op dit moment de laatste hand legt aan een motorenfabriek. De assemblage van accu's zal werk bieden aan ongeveer driehonderd mensen.

Dat heeft Daimler dinsdagochtend bekendgemaakt. Volgens een woordvoerder in Stuttgart steekt het concern 'meer dan €200 mln' in de batterijfabricage in Polen.

Plannen voor meer batterijfabrieken
De nieuwe productievestiging ligt in Jawor, nabij Krakau. Daimler produceert als sinds 2012 in Kamenz in de Duitse deelstaat Saksen batterijen en heeft plannen voor zeven nieuwe batterijfabrieken in Duitsland, China, Thailand en de Verenigde Staten. Voor het gehele programma heeft het concern meer dan €1 mrd gereserveerd.

Daimler is niet van plan ook de accucellen, waaruit de batterijen zijn samengesteld, zelf te maken. Die koopt het concern voor meer dan €20 mrd op de wereldmarkt.

Markus Schäfer, de topman van Mercedes-Benz Cars, zei dinsdag 'het gehele aanbod tot 2022 te zullen elektrificeren'. Er moeten volgens Schäfer zeker tien personenautomodellen van Mercedes komen die geheel elektrisch zijn.
Mercedes will boost battery production in Poland

Automotive News reported that Mercedes-Benz will open a battery plant in Poland, as the automaker looks to ramp up its investments in electric vehicles in the coming decade. Mercedes' parent Daimler is investing more than EUR 1 billion in a global battery production network that will include factories in Europe, the US, China and Thailand. The Polish battery plant will be located next to an engine factory in Jawor, 100 km from the German border. The engine factory will start production this year of four cylinder engines for hybrid and conventionally driven vehicles.

Daimler will buy battery cells worth more than 20 billion euros (USD 23 billion) by 2030 as it readies mass production of hybrid and electric vehicles.

Daimler plans to launch at least 10 full-electric cars including Mercedes and Smart models by 2022, beginning with the Mercedes EQC full-electric SUV, which goes into production later this year.

Met deze auto krijg je nooit een ongeval

Mercedes heeft een concept car ontwikkeld die is voorzien van zelflerende kunstmatige intelligentie. De auto, ESF geheten, kan hierdoor volgens het Duitse merk geen ongelukken meer veroorzaken. Dat zei de R&D-baas van Mercedes, Ola Kalennius, tegen

Erik Kouwenhoven 28-01-19, 20:00 Laatste update: 20:49

,,Zaken als autonoom rijden en geavanceerde hulpmiddelen helpen om verkeersongevallen te verminderen, omdat vrijwel alle verkeersongevallen menselijke fouten zijn”, aldus Kalennius. Hij liet doorschemeren dat kunstmatige intelligentie deel zou uitmaken van het nieuwe veiligheidsconcept. Volgens hem is een deel van de technologie in de nieuwe ESF bijna klaar voor productie en kan deze in toekomstige voertuigen worden geïmplementeerd.

Het idee is dat de auto wordt bestuurd door constant lerende kunstmatige intelligentie en een enorme hoeveelheid cloud computing-rekenkracht. Deze kan te allen tijde alles zien, waardoor niemand meer hoeft door een auto-ongeluk hoeft te sterven. ,,We zullen halverwege dit jaar tonen hoe de toekomst van verkeersveiligheid eruit zal zien,” aldus Kalennius. Die timing wijst op een mogelijke onthulling op de Frankfurt Motor Show in september.
Mercedes-Benz to roll out 15 new models in China in 2019

Gasgoo reported that in 2018, Mercedes-Benz sold a total of 674,125 vehicles (including Smart) in China with a year-on-year growth of 10.3%. The German premium car brand plans to roll out 15 new models in this country, including the new E-Class, the mid-cycle refresh GLC L, the all-new GLE and the all-new EQC, the automaker told local media on January 29.

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class will replace the 3.0T engine with the M264 turbocharged inline-four engine, still hooked up to 9-speed automatic manual transmission.

Its exterior will retain the design of the existing model. The grille featuring two or three horizontally-placed slats is flanked by eye-catching headlights. The bumper stretches across the lower part of the front face. As to the side profile, waistlines stretch from the front wing to the taillight cluster. The new model offers the tires in two sizes of 18 inches and 19 inches and packs an exhaust layout with dual stacks of pipes on each side.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz EQC is likely to be produced by Beijing Benz in early 2019 and go on sale in the second half of the year.

Daimler ziet winst teruglopen

Daimler AG
51,15 -1,76 -3,33 % Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse (Xetra)
Daimler AG
51,45 -1,31 -2,48 % Gruppo Borsa Italiana
Daimler AG -OTCPK-
$ 58,31 -1,96 -3,25 % OTC USA

(ABM FN) Daimler heeft in het vierde kwartaal van 2018 de winst zien teruglopen, ondanks dat de omzet steeg en er meer auto's werden verkocht. Dit bleek woensdagochtend uit de kwartaalcijfers van de fabrikant van onder meer Mercedes.

De nettowinst liep terug van 3,2 miljard euro in het vierde kwartaal van 2017 tot 1,6 miljard euro afgelopen kwartaal. De winsten voor rente en belastingen daalde met 22 procent van 3,4 miljard naar 2,7 miljard euro. De omzet steeg evenwel met zeven procent tot 46,6 miljard euro.

"Voor Daimler was 2018 een jaar met sterke tegenwind. Dit is ook te zien in onze resultaten en de koersontwikkeling van het aandeel Daimler", aldus topman Dieter Zetsche.

De autofabrikant wil een dividend uitkeren van 3,25 euro per aandeel en dat is minder dan de 3,65 euro per aandeel over 2017.

De autobouwer verwacht voor 2019 een lichte groei van de verkopen, omzet en EBIT.

Mercedes-Benz delivers more than 180,000 vehicles worldwide in January

Mercedes-Benz delivered 180,539 vehicles to its customers all over the world in January (-6.7%). The second-best start to a year for sales was influenced by important model changes in the high-volume SUV and compact-car segments. In particular, the model change of the B-Class, CLA and GLE, each with a double-digit sales decrease, had a negative impact on total unit sales worldwide despite the ongoing high demand for the cars with the star. From today’s perspective, the company expects the model changes to affect deliveries in the first quarter. With a high degree of probability, the full year will be affected also by exogenous challenges and geopolitical risks.

At the same time, Mercedes-Benz Cars assumes that the model offensive will lead to sales growth in the second half of the year. The company with the three-pointed star therefore expects to slightly increase its worldwide unit sales overall, and to achieve another record in 2019. Last month, Mercedes-Benz defended its market leadership in the premium segment in markets including Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic, South Korea, the United States, Canada and Brazil.

Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing and Sales said that “With more than 180,000 vehicles delivered, Mercedes-Benz has started the year 2019 with the second-best January ever. Last month was below the strong figure for the previous year; this was in line with our expectations, however, due to important model changes. With the B-Class, the CLA and the GLE, we look forward in the coming months to the new generations of models very popular with our customers and expect the model offensive in our high-volume segments to provide significant sales impetus. 2019 will be a challenging year for the entire industry. But we expect to inspire our customers with new models – especially in the second half of the year – and therefore aim to achieve a slight increase in unit sales and a new record in the full year.”

After being presented to the world for the first time during the IAA for commercial vehicles in autumn, series production of the vehicle has since started and the first buses have been brought into operation on regular-service bus routes. The victory in Spain is already somewhat a tradition for Mercedes?Benz: last year, the Tourismo won the accolade of Touring Coach of the Year.

Daimler India Commercial Vehicles to double distribution network

Economic Times reported that doubling of its distribution network, getting ready for launch of BS VI emission norms compliant trucks, digitisation of customer interface are some of the plans of truck maker Daimler India Commercial Vehicles. A top company official aid during 2018, the company clocked 35 per cent growth in truck sales of 22,532 units in the domestic market and achieved break-even.

Mr Satyakam Arya, Managing Director and CEO, told reporters that "We will also nearly double our distribution network to 350 outlets from the current 182 in two to three years' time. We will digitise our entire customer interface and it will be a dynamic one.”

According to him, the company will also launch new models.

Queried about the market prospects for the Indian truck industry in 2019,Mr Arya said this is an election year and buyers would wait to make their purchases; as a result, the first half of 2019 may witness a slowdown.

Further, 2019 is also the year before truck makers transition to roll out BS VI emission norm compliant vehicles and this may result in increased demand, he added.

He added that on the whole, in 2019 the sales will be mostly flat or there will be little growth for the industry.

BMW en Daimler steken miljard in mobiliteit

Gepubliceerd op 22 feb 2019 om 12:09 | Views: 1.635

STUTTGART (ANP) - De Duitse autoconcerns Daimler en BMW steken gezamenlijk 1 miljard euro in de uitbreiding van hun mobiliteitsdiensten. Het geld wordt gestoken in een vijftal divisies gericht op onder meer elektrisch rijden, laadinfrastructuur, parkeren en autodeeldiensten.

De bedrijven zelf spreken van een ,,game changer" op de markt voor stedelijke mobiliteit. De bedrijven rekenen voor dat wereldwijd 60 miljoen klanten gebruik maken van hun diensten. Wereldwijd worden maximaal duizend nieuwe banen voorzien.

De automakers zeggen in de toekomst verdere investeringen niet uit te sluiten. Ook wordt gekeken naar nieuwe samenwerkingsverbanden met andere aanbieders evenals overnames van bijvoorbeeld start-ups of gevestigde bedrijven. Doel is uiteindelijk om alle onderdelen te laten samensmelten tot een duurzame mobiliteitsdienstverlener.

De twee bedrijven zijn in Nederland onder meer actief met parkeerbetalingsdienst Parkmobile en autodeeldienst Car2Go.
