Comments Off on Mercedes Benz presents a luxury electric car

Mercedes-Benz is an easily identifiable name that has always equated to superior design elements and an opulent driving experience. Those phrases aren’t typically associated with words like sustainability and electric car , but Mercedes-Benz recently revealed the Vision EQS concept car as an example of how luxury and sustainability can intertwine. The sleek, futuristic design of the Vision EQS show car had everyone talking at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt and the Tokyo Motor Show this year. The dazzling and innovative light systems, from the front bumper to the back, inside and out, highlight the attention to detail and Hollywood-esque glam. Inside, an ultra-streamlined design curves around the occupants from the dashboard to the trunk. Related: A couple turns a Mercedes Sprinter into a solar-powered home on wheels Integrated into the undeniable luxury and function are some nods toward a future of sustainable car engineering. For example, the crystal white DINAMICA microfiber interior is made from recycled PET bottles . The elegant design is trimmed out with native maple accents. Additionally, the roof liner comes from a high-quality textile created by mixing in recycled “ocean waste” plastic . Of course, material sourcing is only part of the sustainability equation. In the world of electric cars , companies seem to excel at efficiency, but lack in sports car performance and luxury. Mercedes-Benz is skewing that assumption with the Vision EQS, capable of 469 hp output and 0-60 acceleration in under 4.5 seconds. In addition to a sporty design, opulent touches and the driving experience one would expect from Mercedes-Benz, the Vision EQS show car offers an impressive range of up to 435 miles without a recharge. Assuming a charging performance of 350 kW, the show car recharges the battery to 80 percent in less than 20 minutes. Mercedes-Benz achieves this efficiency with systematic weight distribution. The balanced, sporty driving experience is powered with electric motors at the front and rear axles, but the battery is integrated into the center of the vehicle floor. Mercedes-Benz has a goal to provide a new, carbon-neutral car fleet in 20 years. In car manufacturing terms, that means a dramatic change in about three design cycles. The company believes that the need for transportation and the desire for the exceptional are timeless concepts that will launch the Vision EQS show car and other models into an era of climate-neutral mobility and emissions-free driving. While holding to the company values of producing a superior consumer experience, Mercedes-Benz hopes to awaken the sustainable focus in its customers by offering them an electric car they can drive with pride and without sacrifice. + Mercedes-Benz Images via Mercedes-Benz
