Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC Shines at Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show 2019

THISDAY - - AUTO -

Daim­ler’s trade fair ex­hi­bi­tion at the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show in Las Vegas (CES), which ended yesterday, fo­cused fully on the out­look on the fu­ture of mo­bil­ity. The au­tomaker said in a state­ment that high­lights in­cluded the world pre­miere of the new Mercedes-Benz CLA, US pre­mieres of the bat­tery-elec­tric Mercedes-Benz EQC (com­bined power con­sump­tion: 22.2 kWh/100 km; com­bined CO2 emis­sions: 0 g/km, pro­vi­sional fig­ures) as well as the rev­o­lu­tion­ary Vi­sion UR­BA­NETIC mo­bil­ity con­cept plus es­sen­tial news about the Daim­ler Trucks’ strat­egy for au­to­mated trucks.After the Mercedes-Benz press con­fer­ence, Sa­j­jad Khan, Mem­ber of the Di­vi­sional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, CASE and Vice Pres­i­dent Dig­i­tal Vehicle and Mo­bil­ity, will be giv­ing an in­sight into the cur­rent de­vel­op­ments within the con­text of the Daim­ler­wide CASE dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion strat­egy – Con­nected, Au­tonomous, Shared and Ser­vice and Elec­tric Drive. In the af­ter­noon, Wil­fried Porth, Mem­ber of the Board of Man­age­ment of Daim­ler AG and Hu­man Re­sources and Di­rec­tor of Labour Re­la­tions at Daim­ler AG’s Mercedes-Benz Vans, ex­plained the fu­ture of mo­bil­ity us­ing Vi­sion UR­BA­NETIC as an ex­am­ple.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA was show­cased to the global pub­lic for the very first time, fea­tur­ing its evolved MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Ex­pe­ri­ence) in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, a tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion that pre­miered at CES in 2018. New func­tions have already been added a mere 12 months later. As a re­sult, the new Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe is not only the most emo­tional vehicle of its class, it is also a highly in­tel­li­gent au­to­mo­tive spec­i­men: the new CLA of­fers a num­ber of clever solutions, from the MBUX In­te­rior As­sis­tant that iden­ti­fies op­er­a­tion re­quests on the ba­sis of move­ments to lend the vehicle in­te­rior a cer­tain level of in­tel­li­gence, to aug­mented re­al­ity for nav­i­ga­tion and the abil­ity to un­der­stand in­di­rect voice com­mands as well as EN­ER­GIZ­ING COACH fea­tur­ing in­di­vid­ual fit­ness rec­om­men­da­tions.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC will be cel­e­brat­ing its US pre­miere – the first purely bat­tery-elec­tric Mercedes-Benz EQ se­ries pro­duc­tion model as a sym­bol for the start of a new mo­bil­ity era at Daim­ler. Visu­ally the cross­over SUV is a pi­o­neer of avant-garde elec­tric aes­thet­ics, rep­re­sent­ing an im­pres­sive com­bi­na­tion of con­ve­nience, qual­ity and ev­ery­day suitabil­ity.

These el­e­ments are ac­com­pa­nied by dy­namic performance, thanks to two elec­tric mo­tors at the front and rear axles with a com­bined out­put of 300 kW. Thanks to a so­phis­ti­cated op­er­at­ing strat­egy, the EQC de­liv­ers an elec­tric range of over 450 km ac­cord­ing to NEDC (pro­vi­sional fig­ures).

The Vi­sion UR­BA­NETIC will also be cel­e­brat­ing its US pre­miere – a com­pletely new mo­bil­ity con­cept for de­mand-based, ef­fi­cient and sus­tain­able mo­bil­ity. The vi­sion­ary con­cept is based on an au­tonomously driv­ing, elec­tri­cally driven chas­sis suitable for bod­ies in­tended to trans­port pas­sen­gers or cargo.
