    Mercedes-Benz Unveils the Vision EQS Concept

      The trailblazer for the EQ Family...

    Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Vision EQS Concept today in Frankfurt. The Vision EQS represents the future of luxurious driving. 

    Powering the Vision EQS is a dual motor system with continuous all wheel drive with approximately 469 horsepower and with about 560 lbs.-ft of torque. The juice for all that power comes from an approximately 100 kWh battery.  The top speed is estimated at 124 mph and 0 to 60 will happen in less than four and a half seconds.  The Vision EQS is capable of DC fast charging up to 350 KW. Range is estimated at around 435 on the WLTP rating cycle. 

    The interior of the EQS is intended to remind passengers of the deck of a boat, taking its inspiration from luxury yachts. The interior uses a portion of recycled plastic reclaimed from ocean waste. The wood is Maple from ecologically managed forests in Germany.  By using wood from Germany, it ensures a short transportation distance to reduce the CO2 output of the assembly process.

    Interior is not bad, exterior is a jelly bean blob of nothing.

    If Mercedes-benz is the BEST OR NOTHING AT ALL, why only 350 kW fast charging when F1e racing using 900 kW charging and Porsche is using 800. This DOES NOT sound like the best or nothing.

    Yeah, just concept car fantasy shlock.  Will be interesting to see how a production version would look.  Since they have the production EQC and EQV, I'd assume a sedan EV will be up next...

    Odd to see cab forward design on a Mercedes when they are known for long hoods.  Looks pretty good overall, nice power numbers and they’ll do an AMG with more power than this.

    The Taycan charges at 250 kw, Tesla Model S at 150 kw.  EQS beats them both although Porsche says 350 kw will be available in 2021.

    It only took 10 years(by the time this power train is actually produced and sold) for somebody to catch up to Tesla..

    It looks like concept garbage that nothing on the exterior or interior will make to to production.

    The only thing news-worthy here is the EV technology.

    Daimler builds all these concepts but never puts them into production. This must’ve been approved before the massive budget cut.

    I'm assuming the production EQS sedan will look more like an  S-class sedan, the way the EQC looks like the GLC...

    From the test mules, it doesn’t look much like an S-class sedan.  The center screen is going into production, the 2021 S-class is getting that screen.  And this vehicle would be in production for 2021 model year.

    Clearly you are dyslexic as Porsche will work off all the 250 kW chargers, but it is ALREADY 800 Charger ready and will charge at 800 at the dealerships which are all required to have these extreme fast chargers.

    That is why Mercedes-benz has FAILED!

    FAILED TO EQUAL PORSCHE, and you call this the best? 🙄

    I got CLS vibes from it.. but as things ove forward that large coupe-like sedan blends in with "true" sedans anyway.

    Porsche has an 800 volt electrical system.  The car car charges at a 250 kW rate, which is what the Tesla Model 3 can do, and that is the fastest charging available today.   Porsche has already said they won't get to 350 kW until 2021, Mercedes has 2 years to get this car on sale and they are ahead of Porsche, tied at worst.

    The Tesla and Porsche are today products while the EQ is still a concept. Easy to beat someone in concept.

    My words exactly. All I’ve heard for the past year is constant Benz EV hype (which normally comes up when a competitor has released and ACTUAL product) and here we are with yet another Daimler concept that’ll be out in “two years” that will look nothing like the concept shown. All hype, no substance.

    If I'm being honest, I also expected when the automotive giants(any brand whose been around for 50+ years) put out some EV competition for Tesla, I thought they'd stomp them. I figured they had the money and experience and know-how to just make a better vehicle. Now, that's not to say their build quality won't stomp Tesla's as we've all heard about their sub-standard QC..

    EQ S production begins 2020.  They have to finish the factory first, Factory 56 is opening in 2020 and is a carbon neutral plant.  When the factory is open they can start cranking out EQ models and the next gen S-class.

    If MB wanted to put its best foot forward & try to challenge Tesla, they should make the next S an EV only, with 400+ range and recharging in 15 mins. And use the concept interior. They are WAY behind! 

    But they wont bring out any of that.

    I expected their first EV to have an optional battery with 400 miles of range. I thoroughly believed they would be the first to crack that barrier and push Tesla down a notch. 

    The best or nothing..? 

    Nothing.

    The S-class is the most successful full size luxury car the past 40 years.  Why would they change it?  The 7-series and A8 aren't EV only.  All S-classes will be mild hybrids at least, and that is more than a lot of other luxo barges can claim.

     

    EQ S also has nothing to do with an S-class.  Different platforms.

    And thousands and thousands of consumers buy those models over the s-class.
    If Daimler is convinced electric is the future & has promised to build their entire catalog as EVs, they should start with the flagship sedan. They've already lost 9 years to Tesla as it is.

    EQ S also has nothing to do with an S-class.  Different platforms.


    It's a concept- platform is of no consequence here. But clearly calling it the 'EQS' implies the future for the model. You know; the mercedes definition of 'the future', which never seems to get here. Concept after concept after concept, all sent to the warehouse. But we all know this...

    Most of Mercedes’ concepts lead to something, maybe not same model but a version of.  Those Pebble Beach Maybach concepts will inspire the Maybach SUV.    EQ S is going to production in 2020.

    Mercedes has a goal by 2039 to be a carbon neutral car company from factory to cars.  European factories carbon neutral by 2022.  These are the most ambitious targets set by any car company.

    GM Climate Change Study Report to the EPA which GM has been working on this since 1994.

    https://archive.epa.gov/epawaste/conserve/smm/wastewise/web/pdf/gm_factsheet.pdf

    GM's latest update and a rewrite of their carbon neutral goals has them achieving this in the 2020's time frame compared to 20 years later for MB. Seems MB is not the Best or Nothing, more nothing.

    https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/general-motors/2017/06/30/gm-sustainability-goals/103331390/

    While Ford has not set Carbon Neutral goals, they did set reductions of 30% and achieved it 8 years early.

    Here is the current update on GMs sustainability report which shows them making great progress.

      Fiat is bringing the Concept Centoventi to the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.  The concept previews the next generation Panda and the name means 120 in Italian in honor of the brand's 120 year history.  The Panda is the mini-car platform used by the Fiat 500 in the U.S. 
      The Concept Centoventi is designed to be a "blank canvas" ready to be painted to suit owner's needs and desires at any time, without being stuck with the color chosen at purchase. It is produced in only one color and then the customer "paints" the vehicle using Fiat's 4U program that allows for four roof options, four bumper cover options, four wheel cover options, and four exterior wrappings.  Various interior options like storage compartments, seats, and child-restraint systems are interchangeable and installed in a plug-and-play fashion by the customer. 
      The powertrain is electrified and can be equipped with different batteries to vary the range from 60 miles to 300 miles. 
      The Concept Centoventi has a small screen in the windshield facing outward to display messages while a larger rear tailgate display can also display messages or while in motion, just the Fiat logo.

      Fiat Chrysler is bringing a slew of concepts to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that all feature some sort of electrification.
      The centerpiece of their display will be the 2020 Airflow Vision concept.  While not specifically branded as a Chrysler, the Airflow Vision does take the name of a full-size Chrysler model produced from 1934 - 1937.  FCA calls it a "sculptural design concept" that envisions the next generation of premium transportation.  The interior user experience is designed to be captivating. FCA put a lot of work into showing a sophisticated appearance that can be personalized and customized to individual needs. 
      The cabin offers multiple interfaces, one behind the steering wheel, two on the center console, one for the front passenger, and two more for the rear passengers. Information can be shared between the screens by swiping.  The interior is said to be the same size as the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in and has a flat load floor. In spite of all that room, it only has 4 seats set up in a lounge chair fashion to maximize legroom, shoulder room, and storage space for each passenger. Premium suedes and leathers, along with ambient lighting make the ride a first-class experience. 
      The exterior of the Airflow Vision has an aggressive stance with bodywork reaching almost to the ground. The wheels hint at the use of electric motors, but no powertrain information was provided.

      Los Angeles - Volkswagen has rolled out the 7th vehicle on the MEB platform at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Known as the ID. Space Vizzion, it is an all-electric wagon concept that previews a potential production vehicle for North America and Europe. It has a super efficient drag coefficient of 0.24 and carries and 82 kWh battery for a range of up to 300 miles.
      The concept car is powered by a 275-horsepower motor mounted in the rear. A second motor could me mounted up front giving a total system output of 365 hp and all-wheel drive. 
      Inside, the ID Space Vizzion is chock full of modern touches such as an augmented reality heads up display, new "AppleSkin" material is used in the seats and doors. The color spectrum of the infotainment system also changes according to the selected background lighting color. If the ID. SPACE VIZZION detects a stressful situation, such as rush hour traffic jams, the system suggests switching to a relaxation mode in which a calming ambient lighting shade is activated.

      No word yet on when and if the ID. Space Vizzion is coming to market, but with the expansion of Chattanooga already underway to build the ID cars, the ID Space Vizzion's production counterpart could be here sooner rather than later.

    • Oh it is??  Typical me; I don't pay attention to the toyoters much. 🤮 1. It doesn't look 'really ordinary' IMO (it's a Ford, yes?), but more to the point - it doesn't look really cheap. Not Ram Tradesman cheap. 2. Shouldn't a Lincoln equivalent be much nicer??
    • @ ANYBODY that wants to discuss this. But it is directed towards @ocnblu if he feels like discussing this.  Yeah...it was either a downvote or a laughy thingy... MAYBE YOU THINK THIS POST WILL BE LONG... BUT LETS DISCUSS... IT IS AN AUTOMOTIVE FORUM AFTER ALL...  UNLESS OF COURSE YOU WANNA TREAT THIS FORUM LIKE THE SUNDAY FUNNIES... But I wanna know why you feel like laughing when in fact...air pollution is a real phoquing problem on our planet... We are 7 billion plus humans and by 2050...its projected we will be 10 billion.   I mean...in 1985 there was 4.5 billion or so souls around. In 1960 3 billion and in 1970 3.7 billion. We have doubled our population from the height of the muscle car era.   Serious talk now...  Dont laugh.  Because you are so against EVs and the government forcing us to buy them...but you NEVER seem to wanna discuss it. This is real serious shyte... Los Angeles air was unbreathable several times a year then and it got worse and then CAFE came about and I KNOW you are against that too...but Los Angeles air is better today?  Maybe? Because I really dont how you feels about Los Angeles air pollution then and now.  Are you in denial it was bad for LA then but its better now? What is it that bothers you about this whole thing? You laugh at us for it or you downvote, but you never seem to discuss it.  Cars then were huge and got huge-ier.  Engines in 1970 in the North America were just about at the peak of horsepower and torque and got the shyttiest of gas mileage coupled with even shyttier exhaust pollution.   Do you deny that also? Where Im going with this. Beijing today is where Los Angeles was.   The 3rd world that was then is starting to become the 1st world today. Do you deny that Europe was not economically sound in the 1970s? Asia? Do you deny that these places today enjoy the same economic success that we had in North America in the 1970s? Imagine what shape the planet would be in today if the whole damned planet drove the behemoths that we had during the 1960s and early 1970s (BEFORE the government took our fun away)? Do you deny that the planet would be in a very shytty place today had it NOT been for all that catalytic converter stuff and downsizng of our engines and cars?  Yes the party was over and the fun continues to be sucked right out... But you deny that we need to change? What is YOUR solution? Because quite honestly...in a short while...we will be 8 billion people.  And yes...we will continue using gasoline and oil for other stuff...but...at least...can we NOT use it for our daily needs for transportation? I mean...is it soooooo phoquing horrible to wean off of gasoline for our daily driven vehicles? Old car batteries could be recycled in usage for powering our commercial industries when they are no longer viable  for cars. That kind of thinking could ease off the power grid. Yes. Yes. Recharging the cars will obviously put pressure on the power grid. Ill ask you this.... Aint America about INNOVATION? When Trump says Make America Great Again, in what way did he mean it as and how did his voters interpret it? Because if you tell me that batteries are not gonna work or batteries are pollutants as well... Well... STOP WITH THE BULSHYTE ARGUMENTS and START INNOVATING? (yes question mark because some Americans have become too phoquing complacent in their big fat ass (literally|) ways and just whine and bitch but do NOTHING about it...but also bitch about how good the good 'ole days were) The thing is...this is the way the PLANET wants it to be. There are some that DONT want change but others want change.   PHOQUE IT!!! FIND PHOQUING SOLUTIONS!!! Because the internal combustion engine is NOT the solution for the next 100 years!!! Whether you want to believe it or not!!! Whether you like it or not, It WAS the solution 100 years ago. The planet is no longer where it was a decade ago, let alone 100 years ago...            
    • Communist economics were radically dialed back since 1978.  The Communists in China still run the government. As for demand for EVs, no one knows how many will sell this year or next year or 10 years from now.  Right now, yes it is less than 1%.  Sounds like a lot of the rest of the world.  Then again, oil prices are only about $55/barrel now.  The GM EV1 failed because oil prices were $10/barrel back in the late 1990s.  Call me when oil prices approach $200/barrel, then show me EV sales at that point.
    • If that is the top trim, that is really ordinary.  I suspect that the Lincoln equivalent has a much nicer interior.  Also, these days the Explorer is nowadays a police vehicle for the most part, hence the rental/fleet issues.
