There’s much more to this
This is such a clean electric sedan that you can mistake it for a one-piece body same as the concept. To this date, it can be considered one of the most aerodynamically efficient cars as it comes with a drag coefficient of 0.20cD. There is a two-tone color scheme that is quite similar to the concept. In the front is a nice touch-up with a black-colored panel. This is further flanked by tiny three-pointed stars, which glow in the dark. Coming to its outside part, there are the trendy connected rear taillights along with alloy wheels that range from 19 to 22 inches.
Inside of the Mercedes-Benz EQS
The model greets you with its carmaker’s MBUX Hyperscreen that consists of three digital screens. The screens are a whopping 555.5 inches! Talking of the first two 12.3 inches screens, they make up for the digital driver’s display as well as the touchscreen infotainment for passengers. The third screen, however, is a 17.7 inches central touchscreen infotainment system. There are three touchscreen displays for the rear occupants. This consists of 11.6 inches screens on the headrests of the front seats. It also consists of an optional tablet to control select functions.
The MBUX infotainment system, the Adaptive Interior Assistant feature, more
The MBUX infotainment system can be controlled with a voice from any seat in the complete sedan. Another one, the Adaptive Interior Assistant features is one that uses the cameras and the sensors for monitoring the behaviour of occupants. It can automatically dim the background lights when the driver is found looking at the front passenger screen. This is to ensure that all focus stays right on the road in the front.
While this is a car of the S-Class of EVs, its rear seat finds huge importance. It does miss out on certain features like the lounge seating just like in an airplane, it consists of an optional pack. This pack offers a four-way configuration as well as a heated and massaging function, again, for the rear seat passengers in the car.
Premium features of the Mercedes-Benz EQS model
Other features will be a 15-speaker 710W Burmester sound system, and an ambiance pack for lighting, sound, and aroma. Another feature is an augmented reality navigation feature. You will find that the 55.5 inches MBUX Hyperscreen is a bit too large a screen. But you may note here that there is the base variant borrowing the 2021 S-Class’ dashboard layout with 12.3 inches MBUX digital driver’s display and the 12.8 inches central touchscreen infotainment system.
