Mercedes-Benz has already launched an impressive range of electric vehicles (EVs) and has just announced it plans to launch a new electric sports utility vehicle, the EQE SUV. To celebrate this the German automaker has released some teaser pictures of the interior of the upcoming electric SUV due to be officially launched on 16 October.
The EQE SUV, which will join the EQA, EQB, EQC, EQE, EQS and record-breaking VISION EQXX, is based on the large electric platform from Mercedes‑EQ. On top of this, it boasts an interior that has been completely digitalised.
The optionally available MBUX Hyperscreen implements this to impressive effect. The entire instrument panel is ultimately one widescreen. The high-resolution screens merge seemingly seamlessly under a single glass cover.
The dominant outer vents have a turbine design. They deliberately play on the theme of hyperanalogue through the contrast between high-tech precision mechanics and digital, glass display world.
The front section of the centre console joins the instrument panel and is free-standing in space. The vent band from the cockpit is visually continued in the front doors. A floating control cluster with integrated door opener and seat controls takes over the functional interpretation of formerly purely decorative elements.
Avantgarde, as well as traditional materials and colours, give the interior a special atmosphere. Five coordinated colour combinations underscore the generous sense of spaciousness. The EQE SUV is immersed in a progressive and luxurious world of colour comprising warm and cool tones.
A hybrid trim element brings together the warmth of wood with the technical coolness of real aluminium. The trim in an anthracite 3D relief-look finish, on the other hand, features fine metal pigments. The laser-cut trim element backlit with the Mercedes‑Benz pattern also creates a special ambience.
All-in-all the new five-seater electric SUV from Mercedes-Benz looks futuristic in a cool and clear modern package. We will bring you more when it’s officially released in October.
