Mercedes-Benz has showcased its latest fully electric concept vehicle, the Vision EQS, designed for an environmentally minded luxury market.
According to Mercedes, the interior design takes its inspiration from the world of luxury yachts. For the first time, the entire dashboard blends with the body of the front trim section to form an interior sculpture. With its deep and open spatial architecture, the cockpit of the Vision EQS envelops the occupants like the deck of a boat.
For the interior materials, the auto maker has systematically opted for sustainability, using both traditional and technologically pioneering materials. Crystal-white DINAMICA microfiber on the seating contrasts with rosé-gold colored highlights at the seam ends of the contrasting diamond pattern. The floor area and door center panels have been colored bright white and artificial leather is used at the side sills to create a harmonious counterpoint. The material’s surface is similar to that of Nappa leather and has contrasting topstitching around the borders.
The central display enables various vehicle functions to be operated by touch control, while side displays on the driver and front passenger seats allow individualization of the driving experience by entering the Mercedes me ID.
The intelligent Connected Light runs around the entire interior like the 360° lightbelt on the exterior and is able to communicate with the occupants by positioning information in space. It also helps create special lighting moods inside the vehicle.
