two-tone mercedes-benz vision EQS sustainably crafted for green mobility

debuting at IAA 2019 in frankfurt, the mercedes-benz vision EQS is a futuristic union of innovations. it presents an elegant yet dynamic exterior design, highly crafted yet sustainable luxury inside, and an emotional yet rational mobility experience overall – all while using a renewable power source. as a vision show car, the design highlights what to expect for large luxury, electric saloons in the near future from the german brand.

with stretched proportions, the vision EQS sculpted exterior is defined by its prominent, continuous ‘lightbelt’ at shoulder level that then divides its two-tone color scheme of silver and dark blue. an impression of black panel glass flows seamlessly from the striking EQ front grille all the way to the rear. at the front, DIGITAL LIGHT headlamps – each with two holographic lens modules – offer an almost unlimited number of variations. at the back, 229 illuminated stars form the lightbelt.



likewise, the car’s interior also continues its aesthetic of progressive luxury in sculptural forms. taking influence from yacht design, the cabin features a flowing design where the entire dashboard blends with the body of the front trim. the floating architecture envelops the occupants in a comforting, personal space. the interior is then crafted from a mix of traditional and technologically advanced sustainable materials. made from recycled PET bottles, DINAMICA microfiber in crystal white is used alongside maple trim. as well, the roof liner is created ‘using a quantity of recycled ocean waste plastic’.




shown at IAA 2019, the mercedes-benz vision EQS’s interior becomes immersive with the use of sustainable materials enhanced with technology. for example, digital content can be experienced over the entire front’s dashboard surface. detailed highlights then include the air vents integrated into the trim element like inlays, sophisticated speaker covers bathed in rose gold, and a fragrance flask encased in a jewel-like holder.



building upon the innovations of the EQC – the brand’s first production EV, electric motors feature at the front and rear axles and battery integrated into the floor. it provides a 350 kW of output and 760 Nm of torque, which ensures the car accelerates from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in under 4.5 seconds. with a range of up to 466 miles (750 km), the car can recharge from 0-80% in less than 20 minutes with 350 kW charger. mercedes me charge app encourages and directs customers to charge with ‘green’ energy at specific stations.
