Based on the dedicated MEB electric-car platform developed by parent Volkswagen, the new model will be a sporting sister to the more upright Q4 e-tron revealed as a concept at the 2019 Geneva auto show.
It’s the augmented reality head-up display that could really set the new S-Class apart. The current MBUX system has integrated AR, but what Mercedes promises for the second-generation sounds equal parts futuristic and practical.
The new model sits on an all-new architecture and wedges between the existing Encore and Envision in the brand’s lineup. It’s better-looking than the Encore, and it offers all the latest GM driver-assistance and infotainment features.
