A connecting element on all EQ vehicles is their design. The EQ brand boasts an impressively avant-garde and independent set of aesthetics.
The dynamic exterior design with its new electro-look emphasises the focus on the powerful electric drive system. At its heart is a radiator grille with chrome inserts and an LED band – typical characteristics of the EQ design idiom. The whole exterior is painted in high-tech silver while the bumper delivers an unmistakeable appearance thanks to large air inlets and two broad chrome inserts positioned towards the outer edges. LED headlamps underline the presence and sporty direction of the concept vehicle. This impression is enhanced thanks to the tidy profile as well as by the 19-inch light-alloy wheels which, even at a standstill, look dynamic.

The spectrum ranges from electric vehicles to wallboxes and even as far as charging services and charging infrastructure. Meanwhile, the name EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence” and is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values “Emotion and Intelligence”.
Amazement and fascination are as much a part of it as the holistic solutions themselves which offer the greatest possible benefit to customers through the use of the latest technology. The comprehensive electrification strategy being pursued in the product portfolio allows Mercedes-Benz to provide an even broader experience of the EQ product and technology brand to customers. This starts with the wide-ranging electrification of the modern combustion engine – also known as mild hybrids – which use the “EQ Boost” technology. A further and very important component is the continued plug-in hybrid offensive being pursued. Until 2022 the whole Mercedes-Benz Portfolio is planned to be electrified. This means that electrified variants will be offered in every segment – from the compact car to the large SUV.
