Mercedes-Benz interior teaser reveals wide display

The German manufacturer is not going to revolutionize its interiors in the upcoming EQ-series models, as there are still physical buttons, conventional air inlets, etc. However, the all-electric SUV – EQC – is bringing something new as there are no separate displays for instrument cluster and infotainment. There is a wide single display/touch screen – more than a half the width of the car.

With all the subtle backlights here and there, it’s quite striking.

There’s a lot of piano black plastic in the center. so don’t expect that to stay clean for long, catching all the fingertips and showing every speck of dust.

Mercedes-Benz EQC concept:

  • 70 kWh battery
  • up to 310 miles (500 km) of range (optimistic)
  • dual-motor, all-wheel drive
  • 300 kW of peak power

Might as well go full Byton

Umm, I will need to wait and see that in person… In this pic it looks like Mercedes might be trying too hard…

Nothing new. Mercedes has these wide display panels in several production models.

Yup! At least 3 classes (A, G, S) already have those.

It looks like it is still two displays, just under the same glass panel. It is a nice visual effect though.

I like buttons if they are well done, like basic knobs for climate. Those buttons look pretty horrible and would rather have them on a touch screen.

Nah, those climate control buttons are good. Especially for people that have owned Mercedes before. They are this way since the last ten years or more. They give good tactile feedback and you don’t have to check if it actually has done what you wanted.

Ah, good to know they have been horrible for so long then. Terrible design to have a bunch of buttons lined up like that, have to look at them too closely to see what each does, etc.

Might as well just put them on the bottom edge of a touch screen in the same order, would be just as good.

Nice car, but it probably will cost more than $60K….

Yes more than $60k. I keep seeing the battery stated as being 70 kwh. Jaguar is 90 and Audi 95 kwh. Will the production version be like its peers? Based on its peers, 300 miles would be a big stretch even with 90 kwh let alone 70. We’ll find out soon.

It will be interesting to see who buys these (limited volume) cars. It seems to me that the EV enthusiast would still lean toward Tesla and I’m not clear how much these cars will appeal to traditional traditional MB, Audi, etc customers. It will be interesting to see what happens.

I’m an economy/mid price car type so what do I know anyway.

$70k car

It’s a vehicle from a prestigious established car manufacturer with a good dealer/maintenance network and a large number of existing customers. I’ll bet they will be selling as many as they can produce for the next few years.

While an EV enthusiast may lean towards a Tesla, the average person on the street is likely to be less bothered about Tesla. Making EV’s mainstream depends on those people, not enthusiasts. MB isn’t exactly a petrol head brand so if it looks like a MB, drives well and is comfortable then normal buyers will buy it. Just as long as it’s comparable with the ICE versions.

Unfortunately it’ll be way out of my price range too!

It’s really not necessary for MB to release a 15 seconds teaser every day. Not that many are excited about this car.

They are trying to build excitement. I don’t mind, but would be fine with them releasing it all at once. It is the most interesting MB to me in years.

How would even begin to know what the global interest is in this vehicle? One thing is clear from the start – the company will provide effective service and support commensurate with the sales price and brand history.

Can’t wait to see the reveal. Mercedes is leveraging all the proven technologies the company currently has on offer including the new MBUX artificial intelligence technologies. Will be ordering the next generation Sprinter 4×4 and it too offers the MBUX system.
