As the latest teaser video reveals, the interior of the fully electric German SUV has retained some of the physical buttons on the dashboard, but most importantly adopts a new dual-screen layout.
Baptized the MBUX, which stands for Mercedes-Benz User Experience, the system in the EQC appears to combine the infotainment and digital instrument cluster into a wide display, thus giving the vehicle a modern and cleaner look throughout the cabin.
The Mercedes MBUX already debuted in the new A-Class, where it’s offered in three different sizes, with two 7-inch screens, one 7-inch and one 10.25-inch screen, or two 10.25-inch displays. It has an Nvidia GPU, 8 GB of RAM, it’s Linux-based and replaces the old COMAND infotainment. It will eventually become Mercedes-Benz’s signature on all models
The rest of the EQC’s cabin gets piano trim, ambient lighting, conventional air vents, electrically adjustable front seats with memory function and other gear.
With the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X and Audi E-Tron in its sight, the Mercedes-Benz EQC uses an electric powertrain that has yet to be detailed. It’s expected to be powered by a high-capacity battery pack that should allow it to travel for up to 500 km (310 mi) in between charges.
Mercedes-Benz will unveil the EQ C next Tuesday, on September 4, in Stockholm, Sweden, and the first deliveries will probably commence before the end of the year or in early 2019.
