Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS previews the requirements of future in the car industry. The luxury electric sedan is a declaration of luxury, comfort and autonomous driving.

The concept opens a new dimension in luxury. Mercedes accounts it with a flowing sculptural stance and with a majestic appearance.

The continuous lightbelt structures and the black panel glass on the silver body makes the vehicle look as if its is floating above the ground. At the front, the EQ grille impresses from the start.

The concept comes with DIGITAL LIGHT headlamps, each with two holographic lens modules, integrated into the continuous 360-degree exterior lightbelt, allowing an almost unlimited number of light variations that provide an outlook on future light configurations by Mercedes-Benz.

The logo of the brand features 229 illuminated, individual stars form the seamlessly integrated lightbelt at the rear.

The car is continuously interacting with the environment, as the digital front grille, making up a light matrix consisting of 188 individual LEDs as a world first, provides a new level in precise signalling. When the black panel is engaged, the stars and pixels creat a 3D effect.

Inspired from the luxury yachts, the interior of the Vision EQS comes with the entire dashboard blended with the body of the front trim section and setting out an interior sculpture. The dashboard, center console and armrests seem to be floating above the interior, thus previewing the brand’s future models.

Marching towards sustainability, Mercedes-Benz makes use of both traditional and technologically advanced materials. High-quality DINAMICA microfiber in crystal white, made from recycled PET bottles, covers the figured maple trim. Meanwhile, the material on the roof liner comes from a special project: a high-quality textile was created by adding a quantity of recycled “ocean waste” plastic.

The screen is slightly inclined, similar to what we expect to see in the next-generation S-Class luxury sedan.

Two electric motors at the front and rear axles provide the car with more than 350 kW of output and 760 Nm of torque, making the concept run from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4.5 seconds. With a charging performance of 350 kW, the show car will get 80% of its approximately 100 kWh-capacity battery charged in less than 20 minutes. It can cover up to 700 kilometers, according to the WLTP cycle, between charges.
