For the electric car, Mercedes-Benz has a fresh perspective and includes fragrance flasks and 3D LED light displays.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS is the company's idea of what a luxury electric sedan should look like, a fresh concept car presented on Tuesday at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt.
And although it is just a notion, implying that in its present shape it will never be accessible for buy, the business has moved quite far with the touches of luxury, sometimes to the level of silliness.
First, there are the technical information. The Vision EQS has an output capacity of over 350 kW (469 hp) and an all-wheel drive that is fully variable. It ranges from 0-100 km / h in less than 4.5 seconds, has a top speed of more than 200 km / h, and comes with a 100 kWh battery providing a whopping 700 km (435 miles) variety and 350 kW charging.
In brief, while it's not quicker than a Tesla Model S, it has a larger battery, more variety, and quicker costs— though these figures would be much more significant if we talked about a real manufacturing car.
And while the vehicle is driver-focused, the firm argues that it will have tier 3 driving independence — which again implies very little in the framework of a concept vehicle, but at the very least it does not sound unattainable considering the present rate of advancement in self-driving vehicles.
That's all nice, but when we look at the layout of the car, things get really exciting. For example, the grille of the car— which is not actually a grille — consists of a light matrix with 188 circuit boards and 940 individual LEDs arranged in a 3D space that gives an element of depth to the entire system.
The vehicle is intended to look like a luxury yacht on the inside. Since Mercedes-Benz wishes to create this vehicle truly sustainable, the inside plastic is reused and the leather is natural (it looks like nappa leather, claims the firm).
And then there are some really bonker details, like the speaker covers in purple silver, and, We mean, "the perfume flask embedded in a jewel-like ornamental case." we're not sure about you, but we never buy a vehicle again without a built-in fragrance flask.
Unfortunately, the most exciting aspect of the interior comes with few information ; according to Mercedes-Benz, "electronic content can be encountered immersively throughout the whole region." Looking at the company's pictures,we're not completely sure how that would function, but it certainly sounds awesome.
Mercedes-Benz did not disclose a timeline to launch the real EQS, the vehicle centered on this idea. In May, the vehicle manufacturer introduced its first electric crossover, the EQC, and it said it was planning to launch 10 all-electric cars by 2022.
