New Mercedes Hyperscreen revealed
Mercedes has lifted the lid on what could be the most advanced infotainment system ever fitted to a production car. It’s called the MBUX ‘Hyperscreen’ and it consists of three massive displays set in a vast single-piece glass frame. It features the latest user-interface technology with haptic feedback and predictive AI (artificial intelligence) that learns how you use the system and can prompt specific features when it thinks you’ll need them.
This whopping screen will first appear in the Mercedes EQS electric car that’s expected to be revealed in early 2021 and go on sale in 2022.
Mercedes EQS teased
The upcoming Mercedes EQS has been teased in an official photo from Mercedes during the launch of its latest MBUX infotainment system. This EV alternative to the recently revealed S-Class limousine will be capable of around 435 miles of driving on a single charge and its 440hp electric motors will make it a seriously rapid luxury car. It’s set to cost from around £80,000 when it goes on sale in 2022.
Mercedes EQS SUV spotted
Prefer luxury SUVs to saloons? Well, you’re in luck, because Mercedes is developing an electric alternative to its flagship GLS SUV. Likely called the EQS SUV, this will be the most expensive car in the German brand’s new EQ range and should offer around 435 miles of range when it arrives in 2022.
Mercedes EQE spotted
As well as an electric alternative to the S-Class and GLS, Mercedes is readying an electric E-Class-sized car called the EQE. This swoopy four-door will look similar to the upcoming EQS and is set to offer around 350 miles per charge in exchange for a £65,000 price tag.
Mercedes EQA to be revealed soon
The EQA electric crossover will be the first EQ model Mercedes will launch in 2021. This small family car will be based on the new GLA and will be capable of driving around 250 miles between charges. It will likely go on sale in late 2021 and should set you back from around £40,000.
Mercedes EQB spotted
In addition to the EQA, Mercedes is also preparing to launch an electric version of the GLB. This EQB model will likely share the same electrical underpinnings as the EQA and should go on sale sometime in 2022. Like the Tesla Model Y, the EQB should be offered with five or seven seats, making it one of the most practical small electric cars around.
Mercedes C-Class spotted
The new Mercedes C-Class has been spotted testing in practical estate guise and in AMG-lite C43 form. This new model will be available as a saloon, estate, coupe and convertible over the coming years, with the saloon and estate arriving first – likely before the end of 2021.
Mercedes CLS spotted
The Mercedes CLS four-door coupe is set to receive a mild visual upgrade soon, as shown by spyshots of this AMG-53 prototype.
Mercedes-AMG C63 spotted
Following the new Mercedes C-Class into showrooms will be a new AMG C63 model. This car is set to lose the outgoing car’s thunderous 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 and geta version of the AMG A45 S’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine – albeit boosted by a performance-focused hybrid system.
Mercedes-AMG S63 spotted
The new Mercedes S-Class will receive the AMG treatment soon, with spyshots of the upcoming AMG S63 model showing it’ll get plenty of visual upgrades in addition to a high-performance mechanical makeover. It’s likely this car’ 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 will produce around 700hp, while a future S73 hybrid could nudge this to as much as 800hp.
Mercedes-AMG GTS 73 four-door
The upcoming AMG-tuned S-Class won’t be the only Mercedes to benefit from performance-enhancing hybrid tech, the AMG GTS four-door is also expected to get a battery-boosted 73 version. Like the S73, this is expected to muster around 800hp thanks to the combined efforts of its electric motor and 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.
