Believed to preview the brand’s flagship EQS electric luxury sedan, the concept sports a very luxurious and futuristic cabin. It features four individual lounge-like seats mounted on a seemingly flat floor separated by a suspended center tunnel that flows from the dashboard to the rear screen.
The photos featured on Mercedes’ Facebook page are accompanied by a short description that reads “the EQ story continues. We’re pioneering the future of sustainable modern luxury. See the interior design vision of an all-electric four seater luxury sedan.”
The centerpiece of the dashboard is the massive display which rises from the center tunnel acting as the main interface between the driver and the vehicle. There are also four slightly smaller displays mounted on each door allowing passengers to control multimedia preferences and operate the windows.
We can also spot a butterfly-type steering wheel that likely retracts into the dash when autonomous mode is engaged. It’s not hard to imagine the front seats rotate towards the rear area to create a relaxing environment and allow passengers to engage in face-to-face conversation while the vehicle deals with the tedious task of driving.
As for the exterior, yesterday’s teaser images revealed a sleek four-door coupe silhouette with a rakish windscreen and a compact greenhouse. The production Mercedes-Benz EQS luxury EV is expected to ride on the new MEA platform and feature two electric motors with a combined output of more than 592 hp (441 kw / 600 PS) in the rumored AMG variant.
The EQS is likely to offer a driving range in excess of 310 miles (500 kilometers) when it debuts sometime in 2021.
