Mercedes-Benz stands strongly with the future of electric mobility. Generation EQ concept vehicle comes across as a sporty SUV coupe.

Power comes from the two electric motors so output can be increased to 300 kW owing to scalable battery components. The permanent all-wheel drive system offers a range of 500 kilometres in its quest of sustainable mobility. Showcased at the ongoing Paris Motor Show, EQ stands for ‘Electric Intelligence’.

Dr Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars says future mobility at Mercedes-Benz stands on four pillars: Connected, Autonomous, Shared und Electric. EQ combines a comprehensive electric ecosystem of services, technologies and innovations.


New-gen Mercedes Benz electric vehicles are based on architecture developed for battery-electric models, and are variable owing to modular building-block system. This makes the architecture suitable for SUVs, saloons, coupes, cabriolets and more. Building structures are an intelligent multi-material mix of steel, aluminium and carbon fibre and optimise lightweight design, strength and cost considerations.

The fluidic design front is an unified attempt at seamless integration with hardly noticeable body panel joints, concealed windscreen wipers, cameras in place of exterior mirrors and no door handles in sight. The dynamics helps with air resistance reduction.

The driver-oriented cockpit maximises use of touch-based controls. An asymmetrical instrument panel design brings forth a floating wide-screen display. Electric seat adjustment remains. Two of three steering wheel spokes house touch controls integrated into OLED displays (OLED = organic light emitting diode) to indicate icons and symbols.
