According to a recent report, Mercedes is planning to create a unique architecture for electric vehicles.

Details are limited but Autobild is reporting the company will soon approve a €2 ($2.4 / £1.5) billion project to develop a bespoke platform which has been dubbed "Ecoluxe."

Little is known about the rumored architecture but the magazine says it will be offered in two different sizes and will underpin at least four different models.

The first Ecoluxe-based model is slated to arrive in late 2019 or early 2020 and it could be a crossover coupe that measures approximately five meters long. Nothing is official but the magazine says the S variant will produce 544 PS (400 kW), while a GT version will develop 612 PS (450 kW). Furthermore, we can expect a range of at least 450 km (280 miles).
