Mercedes-Benz is offering the Sneak Peak electric van, one of the models that will expand its battery-powered range next year.

The world’s best-selling luxury car maker plans to buy Tesla next year to build eight fully electric vehicles on three continents to keep existing rivals, including BMW AG, away. .. The EQT competes with vehicles such as the electric descendants of Volkswagen AG’s hippie-era minibuses, which will appear in the showroom in 2023.

Mercedes’ van business needs to prepare for increased investor surveillance after Daimler completes a planned spin-off of its heavy-duty truck business later this year. This division will continue to be part of Mercedes’ major automotive business, which has been trending significantly in recent years and focused on luxury cars that generate strong returns.

The van division’s efforts to share development costs through a joint vehicle project with Renault SA and Nissan have failed significantly. Mercedes culled a Nissan Navara-based X-Class pickup due to sluggish sales, and customers ridiculed the mediocre quality of a small sitan van that shared components with Renault.

Nissan joined Renault last week and sold a small stake in Daimler. Daimler was acquired about 10 years ago to enhance collaboration.
