Mercedes-Benz Concept EQA Design

The design of the EQ series is based on the concept of “Sensual Purity.” The design is meant to invoke emotion and intelligence. There are soft curves throughout, and the car’s features, like lights, are seamlessly embedded within the body design. This attractive and innovative design provides drivers with progressive and futuristic luxury.

One of the coolest features of the EAQ is the grille has been completely replaced by an LED screen displaying the legendary Mercedes-Benz emblem. The emblem changes based on your driving mode. For example: if you’re in SPORT mode, a flaming wing will be featured on the grille’s LED screen.
