Mercedes EQS: the dashboard becomes a huge screen

Cars News

The new Mercedes EQS, the all-electric luxury sedan of the German manufacturer, will be unveiled in a few days: its production line will run alongside that of the S-Class in the “Factory 56” of the Sindelfingen plant, with the batteries to be manufactured in Untertürkheim. The arrival on the market of EQS is scheduled for next August. In the meantime, however, the parent company has released the first official images of the car’s interior, which are revolutionary in their own way and in the name of the most advanced digitization: the same ends up removing all the traditional controls in favor of a mammoth touch screen.

It is called “Mbux Hyperscreen” and is visually magnetic: it is a concave screen, which extends across the entire width from the left to right A-pillar. To delimit it from the rest of the dashboard are only a thin silver shadow frame, a band of air vents and a narrow frame covered in leather. A technology that constitutes a glimpse into the very future of Mercedes production, with the architecture of the dashboard destined to teach. The Hyperscreen acts as instrumentation, bridge and entertainment system for the passenger at the same time. The information displayed changes according to the context of use to distract the driver as little as possible. Faced with this triumph of oled, the head-up display with augmented reality content almost fades into the background, which projects information onto the windscreen in the driver’s field of vision.

“At Mercedes, we aim for nothing less than leadership in the field of electric mobility and digitalization, thanks to an intelligent platform strategy and a software-based approach,” said Markus Schäfer, member of the board of directors of Daimler AG and Chief Mercedes-Benz Cars Operating Officer: “The new EQS demonstrates that we are following our own path, offering customers an exclusive and highly efficient electric experience with our electric cars.”
