Three new electric models will be launched in Ireland by Mercedes-Benz in the early part of next year, writes Brian Byrne.

The EQS luxury saloon is expected here in the first quarter of the year which will include a range of artificial intelligence features. The EQB will also arrive in the first quarter, slotting in above the entry-level electric car EQA. The EQE mid-sized car is slated for arrival in the second quarter of the year.

There will also be high-performance variants of the EQE coming later in the year.
