This is the Mercedes Generation EQ, an all-electric “close-to-production concept” that marks the launch of Mercedes’ new EQ sub-brand. EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence”, and will be the umbrella under which all future Mercedes EVs will be sold.
We’re talking 10 new EQ all-electric cars by 2025 – not including a fleet of new electric vans, trucks and buses. Here we have two electric motors, one for each axle, a little over 400bhp and 516lb ft and 0-62mph in less than five seconds. The range is said to be a Tesla-beating 310 miles, as is the likely price – a mere £40k.
