Mercedes Will Introduce A Brand New Concept In Frankfurt

The Frankfurt Motor Show is little more than a month away and Mercedes will use the event to introduce a brand new concept.

The company was tight-lipped on specifics, but said the vehicle “embodies the flexible, customer-oriented and sustainable vision of the Mercedes-Benz product and technology brand EQ.” That’s a lot of hyperbole, but it sounds like we can expect a new EQ concept.

Besides the mysterious concept, Mercedes will stage “numerous world premieres.” These will include new plug-in hybrids and the “all-electric high-capacity sedan EQV.” The latter statement is a bit strange as the EQV concept was an electric van based on the V-Class.

Furthermore, the GLB will make its auto show debut and be joined by a new AMG variant. It will presumably be the GLB 35 which is slated to have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 301 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. The engine should be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to a performance-oriented all-wheel drive system.

Besides the aforementioned models, Smart will showcase upgraded versions of their electric city cars. While they won’t come to North America, the ForTwo and ForFour will receive a facelift that includes new lighting units and a modestly revised front end. The cars could also receive an upgraded powertrain, but nothing is official as of yet.

Last but not least, Daimler chairman Ola Källenius will “give an outlook on the future of Mercedes-Benz.” His speech will apparently focus on the “sustainable future” and how this strategy meets universal human needs.
