Mercedes unveils the interior of the EQS, a large and luxurious 100% electric sedan which will notably inaugurate a digital dashboard … 141 cm wide!
The veil continues to rise on the Mercedes EQS . A few days after having released “camouflaged” photos of its large and luxurious 100% electric sedan, the German manufacturer today unveils its interior.
A 141 cm wide XXL screen
And as expected, the model, a sort of electric S-Class, dazzles its eyes by notably inaugurating, as an option, a new XXL-sized digital instrument panel called Hyperscreen MBUX , or literally “hyper-screen”. This giant concave screen with haptic feedback measures 141 cm and covers the entire width of the dashboard , from the driver to the front passenger.
EQS heals the senses
Among the other novelties, Mercedes also announces two sound universes , “Silver Waves” and “Vivid Flux”, which can be selected on the central screen but also deactivated. The driver and passengers can thus be greeted acoustically as soon as they approach the vehicle and board it. A corresponding surround sound also accompanies EQS exiting and locking.
Still on the auditory side, the brand also offers new “Energizing Comfort” programs which offer soothing sounds called “forest glade”, “whisper of the ocean” and “summer rain”.
The olfactory perception has not been forgotten either with the presence of a large HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter which is able to remove not only fine dust and pollen from the outside air, but also dioxide sulfur and nitrogen oxides.
Confused, Mercedes also promises that the EQS will be equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and a large head-up display corresponding to a 77-inch screen . Finally, the firm claims for its sedan an aerodynamic efficiency coefficient (Cx) of 0.20 .
480 hp and 700 km of range for the EQS?
The technical sheet, it still remains a mystery. The EQS should, however, develop a power of around 480 hp and 760 Nm of torque , which could allow it to swallow the 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds. It should also have a 100 kWh battery that will guarantee it a range of 700 kilometers .
Presentation in April, launch in August
The first model to be based on the modular Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA) for luxury electric vehicles, the Mercedes EQS will be produced at the “Factory 56” site of the Sindelfingen plant in Germany. It will be presented in April and launched in Europe in August .
