We’ve only seen renderings so far and may a few pictures from an auto show, but last month a Youtuber was given a chance to get up close and personal with Mercedes-Benz’s Concept EQ. Youtuber ‘WHAT’S INSIDE? FAMILY’ was invited by Mercedes to see the concept live at a production shoot in Portugal and he was even allowed to sit shotgun while the car was in motion.
Getting in closer with the concept allows him, and us, to see a few features that may have gone unnoticed. Of course, this is still a concept model, so we can’t expect to see every bit of tech make its way into the production model.
Starting from the front, there’s the attention grabbing front facia with its lit up headlights and blue LED grille. Then viewers are given a glimpse of what should be a set of side view mirrors, instead there’s a small pod housing video cameras. What’s interesting about its side profile is the lack of door handles. In place of that, Mercedes has installed some kind of sensor that opens the door slightly when he puts his hand on a certain spot.
That’s just he exterior and there are even more details on the interior. We’ll leave the walkthrough to him in the video below.
