“As electrification increases, we see customer demand migrating to electromobility components, batteries and electric propulsion systems,” he said. As a result, Mercedes-Benz will “gradually stop offering manual gearboxes”.

The transition to automatic transmissions would take place in 2023, but the German carmaker did not specify the exact date, due to competition.
