The products plan to establish a new joint venture, whose headquarters and factory will be located in Europe. According to the announcement, the companies are interested in creating a completely new production line for electric vehicles, and for this purpose they will invest in the existing Mercedes-Benz factory located in Central and Eastern Europe.
Investment in ecological transport
According to the information provided by Mercedes-Benz, the companies want to create two large delivery vehicles based on the VAN.EA (Mercedes-Benz) and RLV (Rivian) electric platforms. The company’s plans also include development research aimed at improving production methods and increasing collaboration.
The joint venture will aim to produce environmentally friendly electric vehicles that will be affordable for commercial customers. The brands emphasize that such collaboration aims to demonstrate that an environmentally friendly vehicle for commercial transport can be created while maintaining a profitable price. Currently, we do not know when the first project of the company will be presented, but we will certainly expect news about the impact of the collaboration between the two brands.
