Wow wow wow.
In the words of Martin Tyler, "I swear you'll never see anything like this ever again!" - sorry to our Man Utd fans for that one.
Ok, probably a little over the top from us but you have to admit the new interior of Mercedes-Benz EQS is pretty special. Admittedly too, you probably will see something like this again, and probably quite soon, such is the trend across manufacturers to take what's working elsewhere, give it a little tweak, and roll it out across their new designs too.
But let's not get away from the now and the new luxury cabin in the Mercedes-Benz EQS is eye-catching at the very least, and we're not just talking about the mammoth screen which dominates proceedings.
The ‘MBUX Hyperscreen’, as it's been christened, is a 17.7 inch centre display with 12.3-inch additions either side for both passenger and driver. And this all sits behind a single pane of curved glass that pretty much spans the width of the car. It’s surrounded by a silver/leather frame and sits under a slim vent for the air conditioning.
The Hyperscreen has a special coating to make it scratch-resistant and less susceptible to reflections, while the passenger screen can also make itself less visible to the driver to avoid distraction.
In total, there are more than 350 sensors in the EQS, measuring everything from “distances, speeds and accelerations, lighting conditions, precipitation and temperatures”, to “seat occupancy as well as the driver’s eyelid movements or the passengers’ language”.
And the audio hasn’t been compromised for the aesthetics, either. There are three optional “soundscapes” to choose from that supposedly adapt to your driving style. More on that when we're lucky enough to get in one!
Let us know what you think...
