Next Mercedes EV will be revealed in October
Hyperscreen display array once again highlights cabin
Mercedes-Benz is getting ready to launch the next of its electric SUVs. The Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV is the electric model in the GLE’s size class, set to arrive in October. But Mercedes is showing us the interior today, well ahead of that reveal.
The interior photos showcase the giant display Mercedes calls the MBUX Hyperscreen. It will be optional, but the gorgeous display (also found in the EQS and other EQ models) covers the entire dashboard with glass. Under that panel are several smaller screens, including the digital dash and a passenger display, that make it look like the whole thing is one large digital screen.
Merc says the turbine look of the outer HVAC vents is meant to “play on the theme of hyperanalogue” found throughout the cabin. Merging glass, digital, and precision machined parts for a cool effect.
The cabin will use modern as well as more traditional luxury appointments, with five different colour combinations available. The version shown looks to have the same laser-cut and backlit Benz stars as the EQS, which are one of the coolest details in a luxury car in some time.
When the rest of the EQE is revealed in October, expect Mercedes to tout cargo and passenger space. We also expect it to offer a powertrain similar to that of the EQS 53 sedan, with a 90.6 kWh battery and up to 677 hp.
