And what they look like is bloody awesome.

T​he concept that Mercedes released today is "nearly production ready" meaning that the final EQT will look somewhat like it because Mercedes do have a good track record of delivering in this area. Just look at the EQS, the only real difference is the production version has lights off an A-Class.T​he concept that Mercedes released today is "nearly production ready", meaning that we need to cross our fingers that the final EQT will look somewhat like it. Because Mercedes don't have a good track record of delivering in this area. Just look at the EQS below, the shape isn't too different but all the defining features are.

This EQT Concept features quite an old looking interior. It appears to be off a Mercedes from 5 years ago. In a way though it is a bit of a relief to not have metre wide screens adorning the minimalist dash. You still get all of current Mercedes luxury though, white leather smothers the drivers side of the dash and the seats, accompanied by metallic blue trim and a satisfying looking, big white gear selector with a Mercedes badge on top. Best of all is physical buttons for hazards and aircon controls. In the back its quite Tesla esque, very simple, luxurious and modern.

When you get to the back row, things get interesting, the last row of seats folds completely flat and reveal a full length cubby hole in the boot floor. On the back of these seats are straps that, as demonstrated below, can secure a variety of things easily: helmets, bags and more. All in all, you get white leathery seating for 7, and it will be full because who wouldn't want a go in something that looks this good.

The EQT follows similar design principals to the other EQ models, it uses a flat "grille" panel that seamlessly meets the sleek headlights in a sort of V shape. I don't think I've seen sliding doors that loom this good, the rail for them is neatly integrated into the side of the car and they haven't ruined the overall proportions of the car.

Could this be the end of the SUV barrage?

  • I mean it looks cool, don't get me wrong but Renault did put an F1 V10 in a Renault Espace once.
