Mercedes-Benz Reveals the Concept EQ in Paris
With “Generation EQ”, Mercedes-Benz shows how electric cars can soon move into the fast lane: the concept vehicle, with the appearance of a sporty SUV coupé, gives a preview of a new generation of vehicles with battery-electric drives.
The dynamic exterior design with its new electro-look underlines the focus on the powerful electric drive system: two electric motors, with a system output that can be increased to up to 300 kW thanks to scalable battery components, and permanent all-wheel drive deliver the guarantee of dynamic high-level performance.
With a range of up to 500 kilometres and the typical Mercedes strengths of safety, comfort, functionality and connectivity, “Generation EQ” meets every demand in terms of contemporary, sustainable mobility.
Also on the inside, the vehicle offers innovative solutions, including a completely new interior concept. Celebrating its world premiere at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, “Generation EQ” is the forerunner of Mercedes-Benz’s new product brand for electric mobility, EQ.
The name EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence” and is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values of “Emotion and Intelligence”.
