Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS Showcases Electric Luxury

203

The Vision EQS shows what the S-Class of the future might look like and we like it...

Mercedes-Benz is lighting it up at the Frankfurt Motor Show with its latest concept car, the Vision EQS, which points to a luxury electric sedan of the future. 

From the outside, the lighting looks mightily impressive. Note the “lightbelt” that runs the length of the bodywork as well as Digital Light headlights with 2 holographic lens modules which connect to the above-mentioned lightbelt. The grille incorporates 188 circuit boards with a total of 940 individual LEDs creating a 3D effect while 229 individual stars at the rear create a unique light band. The multispoke wheels measure 24-inches in size...


That's probably the biggest touchscreen we've seen in a car...

The interior draws inspiration from the world of yachts with a sculpted dashboard and centre console that houses an advanced version of Merc’s MBUX system on a large digital screen. It all looks very far-fetched… Nonetheless, it’s good to see the inclusion of sustainable materials such as Dinamica microfibre in crystal white and maple trim made from recycled PET bottles. Artificial leather is also used while the headliner is made from a textile derived from ocean plastic waste. 

Electric power 

The Vision EQS is an all-electric, all-wheel-drive concept with an electric motor over each of the 2 axles and with the battery integrated into the vehicle floor. Output is pegged at 350 kW with 760 Nm of torque available instantaneously. The sprint from zero to 100 kph is claimed at 4.5 seconds. The Vision EQS is also said to have a range of 700 km according to WLTP and can be 80% charged in only 20 minutes. More so, the vehicle supports the driver with Level 3 autonomy but can be extended to be fully autonomous in the future.
