I've been following development on the EQE SUV since MB announced the car as a "future Model." IMO. it's a great looking design with a beautiful interior in the right size with the right range. Additionally, it will be built in Alabama so it will be eligible for at least some of the $7500 tax credit.
I was even more convinced this is my Tesla killer when prices were announced
and the latest EQE SUV page on MBUSA web site
gallery pictures of the SUV with the MBUX Hyperscreen
(basically, wall to wall dashboard, three screen display ala. Cadillac Lyriq). The last thing I want in an EV is a cobbled together interior that looks look the manufacturer just tacked on an iPad to the dash of the ICE version of the car similar to what Tesla, Polestar, BMW, etc. have done.
So I stated researching the BMUX Hyperscreen and found. a few articles that mentioned the MBUX Hyperscreen was not going to be available for EQE SUVs made in the US. What? All the EQE SUV marketing pics I've seen include gallery pics of the SUV with the Hyperscreen. I couldn't believe it so I foresee off a message to MBUSA regarding the Hyperscreen. This was their reply.
The MBUX system we will be getting in the US built EQE SUV is the two screen version similar to what's available now in EQE sedan
with a tacked on instrument cluster display behind the steering wheel. I see a couple posts from recent acquisitions that shoe the current offering on cars built in Germany. IMO, this is very deceptive advertising on Mercedes Benz USA's part intended to mislead customers and I did reply as such. Needless to say, I'm not expecting an answer but this practice is downright devious and deceitful. What ever happened to "truth in advertising?" I expected more from MBUSA but, clearly, they're no better than the rest.
