The EQ Silver Arrow 01 will be on public display between 7 and 17 March 2019 at the trade show. The car has been given a special 'teaser livery' which gives an idea of the team's Formula E campaign to come. The definitive design will be presented at a later stage ahead of the season opener.
"The Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow 01 teaser car gives a foretaste of the first all-electric Silver Arrow from Mercedes-Benz," says Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG. "Blue accents and the subtle contrast between matt and gloss in conjunction with the star pattern at the rear of the vehicle stage the progressive luxury in electric motorsport."
On the side of the vehicle, running all the way from the front to the rear, is a horizontal blue line symbolising the EQ brand. At the same time, it serves as a colour contrast similar to the PETRONAS green on the Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+ in Formula 1. The lines help to optimise visual proportionality. At the rear of the vehicle there is a star motif for both the Formula 1 car and the Formula E teaser version. This subtly conveys the high-value Mercedes-Benz brand.
