At the end of 2016, the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQ celebrated a spectacular première at the Paris Motor Show. And also at the CES electronics exhibition in January 2017 the near-production-level study attracted attention. EQ – which stands for "electric intelligence" and is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values "emotion and intelligence“. Two letters that show the way in electric mobility. The goal for the near future: attractive and high-performance electric battery-driven cars with the brand values of Mercedes-Benz. The Concept EQ makes a start. It takes the form of a sporty SUV coupe and combines this with a new, digital design language.
The innovative permanent all-wheel drive is driven by electric motors with up to 300 kW system output. Furthermore, the Concept EQ combines typical Mercedes-Benz strengths in terms of safety, comfort, functionality and connectivity with the brand values of emotion and intelligence. A concept that already gives an outlook on electric battery drives in various segments, which will in future be able to be used across models and will then be suitable for SUVs, saloons, coupes and further model series. In future, all purely electric battery-driven vehicles by Mercedes-Benz will have the designation "EQ".
