Mercedes Vision EQS concept - luxurious all-electric concept previews halo EV model

The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS, a new concept vehicle unveiled on Tuesday at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, is the company's idea of what a luxury electric sedan should look like.

At the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Mercedes-Benz will show the challenges of the future: sustainability is becoming a central component of the brand philosophy, and a major aspect of our corporate strategy.

Although the EQS is a sedan, but the closest definition, the so-called "one bow" design and soft contouring seem to blur the lines visually, making it appear nearly as a tall-shouldered sport coupe up close.

The show vehicle already meets these aspirations today, and provides an outlook on future large, electric luxury saloons.

If you wanted to know what luxury cars will look like in the future, the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS is here to answer such questions with its simple yet progressive styling, not to mention a properly tech-laden interior. This will essentially form the basis of the design on the future EQ models and that's something to look forward to. Only time will tell whether most of the tech in the concept auto is carried forward to future models, but we can safely say that Mercedes-Benz is looking good for the future. It's enough so as to propel the concept from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 4.5 seconds and onto a top speed of more than 200 km/h (124 mph). It also comes with a 350kw charging capacity that can recharge the batteries to 80 per cent in just 20 minutes.

With the battery housed completely within the floorpan of the MEA platform, it is said to have an exceptionally low centre of gravity, as well as advanced air suspension, featuring active body control and anti-lean to boost the car's dynamic appeal. To inject it with some extra visual pizzazz, the new concept receives a two-tone paint scheme as well as an LED light band along the shoulder of each side. Each of those get a pair of holographic lens modules, while the fascia itself incorporates 229 individually-illuminated stars. Moving to the rear of the vehicle, the tail lights are made up of 229 tiny three-pointed stars, mirroring the livery of the F1 W10 EQ Power+ racer competing in this year's Formula 1 season. But the main talking point is the grille that consists of 188 individual LEDs at the black panel section, along with digital headlights that lends a 3D effect to the front area. All up, the new Mercedes-Benz concept has some 940 individual LEDs. Indeed, the marque has not sacrificed elegance to be eco-friendly: The upcycled interior was inspired by luxury yachts. The cabin also previews a version of the MBUX infotainment system that will find its way into future Mercedes. These include composite materials made from recycled PET bottles and plastic ocean waste, as well as a faux-leather material that is claimed to closely resemble the properties of nappa leather.

The interior gets a concept vehicle layout with tech-laden screens at the front.
