The Concept EQ gives an insight into Mercedes’ electric SUV future.


The Concept EQ is one of the many concepts that grabbed eyeballs at the ongoing Auto Expo 2018. Developed for Mercedes' newly created electric sub-brand EQ, the concept gives an insight into future battery-driven SUVs from the German carmaker.

Unveiled first at the 2016 Paris motor show, the concept has been on display at various motor shows thereafter. It sports a contemporary design and a lot of technologically advanced elements such as cameras instead of exterior mirrors and an absence of conventional door handles. Mercedes describes the concept's styling as an 'electro-look'. 

The vehicle derives power from two electric motors – one mounted in the front axle and another housed in the rear. Both motors deliver a combined output of 300kW with a range of up to 500km. Additionally, it gets a host of driver assistance features.

On the inside, the Concept EQ has a 24-inch wide touchscreen that displays individualised information such as speed, range and navigation. Interestingly, it also gets car-to-X-technology, an advanced safety feature that relies on radio-based exchange of information between vehicles as well as with traffic infrastructure and enables features like blind-spot detection, pedestrian monitoring, information about vehicles ahead.
