2016 Paris Motor Show: Generation EQ concept SUV marks the future of Mercedes EVs

2016 Paris Motor Show: Generation EQ concept SUV marks the future of Mercedes EVs

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the Generation EQ – an electric crossover SUV and it looks surprisingly production ready for a concept car. Along with the SUV, Mercedes has also marked the beginning of the company’s new product brand for electric mobility.

The Generation EQ has been built on the same platform Mercedes is developing for future EVs and has a mix of steel, aluminium as well as microfiber to make it strong and keep it light. For a five-seater, the EQ is large and can be easily extended to fit another row like the Mercedes GLS. Powered by twin electric motors, the Generation EQ can go up to 500kms in a single charge. The power output of the motors can also be scaled up to 400bhp of power – a number enough to get you across any continent in a jiffy. This platform will be flexible and scalable to be the backbone of all Mercedes hatches, sedan, saloons, crossovers and SUVs of the future that will run on electricity alone.

The interior of the concept is futuristic with a large TFT screen for the instrument cluster and LED lighting all around to keep the consumption low. While concepts have their design liberties, the production car will certainly retain the futuristic touches like the bluish ambience on the inside and the attractive LED headlamp units on the outside of the EQ. It might be 2020 by the time one of these rolls off the production line when the cars inspired by the Generation EQ will have everything from self-driving technology to the latest luxury features.
