2019 Mercedes EQ Electric Crossover – Exterior and Interior Styling
The 2019 Mercedes EQ Electric Crossover brings a fresh exterior design with new electro-look. Its fascination lies in a philosophy of emotional purity, which aims at creating a unique and contemporary electro-look. It highlights the squat, elongated greenhouse that contributes to the crossover’s muscular-purist proportions.
The dynamic silhouette of the 2019 Mercedes EQ Electric Crossover is emphasized by concealed windscreen wipers, scarcely visible body panel joints, the absence of conventional door handles, and cameras instead of exterior mirrors. A reduced side view, 21-inch light alloy wheels and broad shoulders also make for the dynamic presence of this crossover.
Also adding up to the new electro-look is the driver-oriented cockpit. The cockpit has simple, touch-based controls that reflect the new electro-look of the exterior styling. The instrument panel showcases large, floating windscreen display that is geared toward the chauffeur. Also, the new generation EQ gets equipped with innovative digital user experience differentials that likely set the future of user interaction of EQ sub-brands.
Overall, the interior part of the 2019 Mercedes EQ Electric Crossover gets refreshed touch-based controls with no knobs. The inside is characterized by contemporary luxury that is especially expressed in an all-new user interface. The interface combines intelligence with emotive appeal and user-friendliness.
Traditional switches and knobs will get eliminated, but the electric set adjustment typical of Mercedes is likely to remain. Out of the three narrow spokes on the steering wheel, two are furnished with touch controls. They are integrated into Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED). Also, they signify symbols and icons in the respective menus.
All the relevant information is presented on a 24-inch TFT high-definition widescreen display. The supposed information includes the range, speed, map details, navigation or driving data.
Under the hood of the 2019 Mercedes EQ
The high-efficiency lithium-ion battery pack comes from the Daimler subsidiary Accumotive. This innovative battery system has at least one model-specific capacity option of more than 70 kWh. According to the automaker, the CCS charging gets up to 150 kWh by the time Generation EQ launches. The electric CUV will have the capacity to accommodate this higher charge rate.
This edition brings along with it two electric motors on the front and rear axles, along with a battery in the vehicle floor. The electric all-wheel drive and a battery installed in the vehicle floor will form the basis for the dynamic high-level performance and safety.
The revised edition comprises a total output of 300 kW and a maximum torque of around 700 Newton meters. It accelerates to 60 mph in just five seconds.
