The Vision EQS, a milestone on the way to the future of Mercedes-Benz. At the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Mercedes-Benz will address the challenges of the future with a focus on sustainability, in relation to it becoming a central component of the brand philosophy, and a major aspect of our corporate strategy. The show car is able to meet these aspirations today while providing a new outlook for future large, electric luxury sedans, and illustrating a vision of purpose-built electro-design. With the Vision EQS, Mercedes-Benz is making a clear statement for the continued future of high- quality vehicles and self-determined driving. Supreme craftsmanship, emotive design, luxurious materials and individual driving pleasure will continue to be sought after. Now and in the future, luxury above all stands for personal freedom.
With its innovative, stretched “one bow” proportion, the VISION EQS takes the Progressive Luxury design philosophy of the EQ models by Mercedes-Benz into a new dimension. The flowing yet powerful sculptured effect of the exterior design gives the show car its majestic appearance – luxurious generosity and aerodynamic elegance working together in harmony.
The prominent “lightbelt” structures the exterior in a new way. The resulting color division at shoulder level creates the impression of a “black panel” glass landscape floating on the silver vehicle body – resulting in a seamlessly connected vehicle surface from the striking EQ front grille to the rear.
In an innovative way, the VISION EQS appears both sensuously elegant and dramatically charged with this design.
Technologically, futuristic features include the DIGITAL LIGHT headlamps, each with two holographic lens modules, integrated into the continuous 360-degree exterior lightbelt. These not only lend the vehicle its serene gaze, but also allow an almost unlimited number of light variations that provide a preview for future light configurations by Mercedes-Benz.
The brand logo has also taken on new tasks: 229 illuminated, individual stars form the seamlessly integrated lightbelt at the rear, allowing the brand’s logo to shine in a new way.
Interaction between the vehicle and its environment is not limited to the lights on the VISION EQS. The world first digital front grille, contains a light matrix consisting of
188 individual LEDs that provides a new level in precise signaling. Once the black panel comes to life, the seemingly free-floating stars and pixels create a fascinating, three- dimensional effect.
