EQE Shines as a Trailblazing Model

The Mercedes-Benz EQE, honored as the “Most Innovative Model,” epitomizes the brand’s commitment to electric mobility.

The saloon boasts an impressive range of up to 682 km (according to WLTP), making it suitable for both everyday use and long journeys.

Pushing the Boundaries of Mobility

Mercedes-Benz’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of mobility extends beyond the vehicle itself. The company strives for continuous improvement, as evidenced by the ongoing beta phase for enhancing voice control through the MBUX voice assistant.

Furthermore, the Vision One Eleven sports car study showcases the brand’s innovative spirit, featuring powerful and efficient axial-flux motors and cylindrical battery cells.

A Glimpse into the Future

The consensus among the panelists was that the automotive industry is on the brink of monumental changes, with the next decade poised to bring unprecedented transformations.
