Most concept cars aren’t designed to be driven, but the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS is one exception. It’s touted as an all-electric S-Class of the future and powered by a pair of electric motors for the front and rear axles, with a battery integrated directly into the floor between them. All of this is good for 469-horsepower and an impressive range of 435 miles when fully charged. Best of all, it boasts 350 kW charging capability that can power the vehicle up to 80 percent in under 20 minutes.
What really sets the EQS apart from other electric cars is its continuous 360-degree illuminated strip of blue that separate the two-tone black/silver finish, a look designed to give the impression that the black is floating atop the silver. The illuminated grille sports 940 individual LEDs hooked up to 188 circuit boards, paired with digital headlights, and out back, Mercedes installed 229 LEDs flush with the bodywork. There’s still a functional dashboard inside with vehicle controls, despite having level 3 autonomy.
