Mercedes-Benz already offers a suitable charging infrastructure for electric cars, including a wallbox as a fast-charging station for the home, the free app "Charge&Pay" for convenient recharging at public charging stations as well as – for home-owners and businesses – stationary energy storage units for the power generated by photovoltaic or solar systems. All these products and services will in future be bundled under EQ. In this way, Mercedes-Benz is creating a consistent and clear image for sustainable products and services with the star.
The innovative, digital user experience gives a peek into the future of user interaction at Mercedes-Benz. The interior of "Concept EQ" is characterised by dispensing with traditional switches and knobs, except for the electric seat adjustment typical of Mercedes. Two of the three narrow spokes on the steering wheel are provided with touch controls, which indicate icons and symbols in the respective menus. The 24-inch (53 x 11 cm) TFT high-definition wide-screen display presents all the relevant information, such as speed, range, driving data or navigation and map details.
