New Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA Trailer with Marcin Öz Released

Giancarlo Perlas June 7, 2018

Beginning something from scratch can be scary for many. There are many risks involved in doing something you are not accustomed to or going out of your comfort zone. However, it opens up new opportunities and it paves way for innovations. One such product of taking the big leap forward is the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA.

The new trailer of the Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA is titled, “Time to do something new.” It features former musician Marcin Öz, who tells viewers how he got to where he is now.

Öz starts by recalling his band called “The Whitest Boy Alive” where he served as its bass player. He said that they used to play in Berlin and in different countries across four continents. However, he came to a point where he felt like he already reached his goals in the music scene, much like Nico Rosberg back in 2016 when he finally reached the peak in Formula One.

Öz realized that it was time for him to go for something new that would challenge himself. After that, he moved to Sicily where he engaged in organic winemaking. Just like most of us, he knew nothing of it from the beginning. Despite that, he persevered and he considered the challenge as exciting.

He basically moved from the end of his music career to the beginning of his passion in winemaking. Sure, he had his doubts if his business will be sustainable, but fast-forward to the present and four years since he started his new venture, he is still making money out of it.

Just like Mercedes, critics said that they will not be able to match Tesla’s supremacy in electric vehicles. However, with the coming of the EQA’s production version, the American EV maker might find a major rival for their Model 3 car.
