Replacing the traditional three-part construction, the side view of the all-electric luxury saloon stretches seamlessly along a curved line – harmonious surfaces blending into a single unit.
Köhl and his design team kicked off the electric evolution in 2015 with the F 015 Luxury in Motion show car. Today, just a few short years later, Mercedes-Benz presents the EQS: the real-life adaptation of the VISION EQS, with which Mercedes-Benz opened the door to a new automotive aesthetic at the IAA 2019, and also a study from the Advanced Design division. The EQS is the polar opposite of the S-Class. “We want to distinguish ourselves visually with the EQ concept, but not divorce ourselves from the cosmos of the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy. On the contrary, we want to expand this,” says Steffen Köhl, explaining the design strategy.
