Mercedes has pulled the wraps off its Generation EQ concept, a zero-emissions SUV that looks strikingly similar to the current GLC.
Powering the Mercedes Generation EQ, is a pair of electric motors installed on both axles to provide a total of 402bhp and 700Nm of torque. That’s more than enough, as per the brand, to propel this concept to 100kmph in less than five seconds. A floor-mounted battery pack provides this vehicle with a range of 500km and also comes with fast charging capabilities.
Attributes like the concealed windscreen wipers, absence of door handles and side cameras in place of conventional mirrors enhance the overall streamlined look of this concept. It rides on 21-inch wheels, and sports a paint shade that the brand calls ‘alubeam silver’ to highlight the fact that this is an all-electric model.
On the inside, the cabin uses a wide 24-inch digital instrument cluster, a steering wheel that incorporates a pair of OLED screens, and touch-sensitive screens instead of buttons. Mercedes added that the images recorded by the rear view cameras are displayed onto a pair of screens which are mounted on the doors.
Mercedes’ Generation EQ concept will serve as preview for the brand’s future electric line up.
