  • Mercedes EQS Is Here To Show Tesla What Electric Luxury Sedans Should Be Like (Live Images)

Mercedes-Benz says that by the end of the year, it'll have 20 fully electric cars for sale. Mercedes says that would be enough to send the concept from 0-60 miles per hour in less than 4.5 seconds.

The Vision EQS is the latest version of the company's EQ series of battery vehicles, which are a key theme at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Gets illuminated exteriors that include an LED grille with digital headlamps, as well as an LED-clustered rear end. The EQS sports a grille panel at the front with 940 individual LEDs on 188 circuit boards that offer infinite number illumination options, and in a way replicates the diamond-themed grille that is seen on the automaker's current line-up of models. Only time will tell whether most of the tech in the concept vehicle is carried forward to future models, but we can safely say that Mercedes-Benz is looking good for the future. The DINAMICA microfiber, for example, is actually made of recycled PET bottles; it sits alongside real maple trim. Artificial leather is also present, featuring a finely structured surface that's said to be similar to nappa leather. The roof liner is a textile that sues recycled "ocean waste" plastic, a nice nod to the boating theme.

Then there's the onboard tech - specifically, the advanced MBUX system. The organically emerging displays and projection surfaces provide display space, as does the intelligent Connected Light that surrounds the occupants. Vertical air vents, rose gold speaker covers and a jewel-like fragrance flask holder complete the interior.

Turkey can not bear a new influx of migrants from Syria , Turkish president said in the capital Ankara on Tuesday. He said Turkey and the United States needed to establish a "safe area" in northern Syria as soon as possible.

The most interesting part of the interior, unfortunately, comes with few details; according to Mercedes-Benz, "digital content can be immersively experienced over the entire area". Powered by a battery in the floor-plan of the VISION EQS, they deliver more than 469 horsepower and around 560 lb-ft of torque.

Straight line performance aside, the Vision EQS also boats an operating range of up to 700 km (435 miles) by WLTP standards. Mercedes-Benz has developed the EQS to support 350kW charging and claims that the battery can be charged to 80 percent in just 20min.

The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS, a new concept auto unveiled on Tuesday at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, is the company's idea of what a luxury electric sedan should look like. This is in many respects scalable and usable on a cross-model basis: "thanks to the modern modular system, the wheelbase and track, as well as all other system components, and especially the battery, are variable and therefore suitable for a wide range of different vehicle concepts", stated the automaker.
