Mercedes-Benz EQS will get an infotainment screen like no other

Posted on

Just as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a showcase of the latest and greatest technology for the German automaker’s combustion cars, the upcoming EQS sedan will be the same for electric cars. This is evidenced by a teaser from Mercedes about the optional MBUX Hyperscreen infotainment from the flagship electric sedan, and it’s literally getting big.

While the company didn’t actually show the screen, it described the Hyperscreen as the full width of the car’s interior. It also becomes a curved screen and displays items for both the driver and front passenger. Supposedly it will cover the instruments as well as all types of infotainment systems, including music, navigation and more.

The infotainment system will be unveiled on January 7, just before CES, which will take place pretty much in 2021. However, we don’t expect the entire car to be revealed. That revelation will likely come a few months later. Espionage recordings indicate that it is similar to the concept and that it is almost ready for unveiling. Mercedes has said the EQS will have a range of 435 miles on the WLTP cycle. That number will likely be lower on EPA testing, but should still be comfortably above 300 miles. It could have a whopping 469 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque from dual electric motors, one at each end.
