Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that it will stop the worldwide production of home batteries under its own brand name. The Daimler company also created a company with which it wanted to enter the US market in 2016.
In 2016, Mercedes wanted to enter the American market with the company Mercedes Benz Energy and started a partnership at the time with the company Vivint Solar. It wanted to compete with Tesla, which supplies its Powerwalls for home use. Mercedes-Benz supplied modular batteries with an individual capacity of 2.5kWh, which users could combine to reach a maximum capacity of 20kWh.
The American company is now going to end and the employees will move to other business units, writes Greentech Media. The site says it has found no evidence that the company has bought many of its batteries in the US.
