Mercedes-Benz at CES 2017: Concept EQ

Jan 5, 2017
Stuttgart/Las Vegas

With "Concept EQ", Mercedes-Benz demonstrates that attractive and high-performing electric cars will soon dominate the streetscape.

  • "Concept EQ" gives a tangible preview of a completely new vehicle generation with battery-electric drive system.
  • The new generation of electric vehicles will be based on an architecture developed specifically for battery-electric models, which is scalable in every respect and usable across all models: the wheelbase and track width as well as all other system components, especially the batteries, are variable thanks to the modular building-block system. The vehicle concept is thus optimised to meet every requirement of a future-oriented, battery-electric model family. The basic architecture is suitable for SUVs, saloons, coupés and other model series.
  • In future, every all-electric vehicle will belong to the new brand for electric mobility, "EQ".
  • The Concept EQ close-to-production show car presented in Paris in 2016 is the herald of this new e-mobility brand.
  • The market launch of the first model, based on an SUV, is planned within the next three years.
The navigation system on board the Concept EQ is based on the HERE map platform and offers a unique 3D view. The system employs the GPU technology from NVIDIA to this end.
