More info coming Friday
Mercedes debuted the Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 concept coupe in 2016 at Pebble Beach, only to follow up with the equally stunning cabriolet version last year. Naturally, we have high expectations for what the automaker plans on doing this year. The automaker will carry on the tradition with yet another concept, and this one appears to take inspiration from the Silver Arrow race cars of yesteryear.
Our focus this week centers on the avant-garde and futuristic visions. The Brand Aesthetic of “Progressive Luxury” arises from the combination of a previously unknown beauty, the conscious clash of digital and analogue elements as well as the seamless merger of intuitive and physical design. Find out more throughout the week and get excited for our big reveal on Friday. #Mercedes #MBdesign #MBhotandcool #hot #cool #ProgressiveLuxury #MBcars #SwitchToEQ
The automaker hasn’t released any concrete information leading to the reveal. But Daimler Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener has posted a few teasers for the new showcar on his Instagram page. He used the hashtags “eqsilverarrow” and “SwitchToEQ,” hinting at an electric powertrain for this sultry remake.
In this video, we can clearly see the concept’s long and low proportions that have been taken from the Mercedes Silver Arrow race cars of the 1930s and beyond.
Stay tuned for the big reveal this Friday at Monterey Car Week. In the meantime, check out these other teasers Wagener has put out prior to Pebble Beach.
“Aesthics Progressive Luxury” this scupture expresses our latest in our design philosophy of the seamless design of our future Mecedes-EQ brand. It shows the transition from our famous historic silver arrows – such as our speed record car W125 record driven by Carriciola – to the digital transformation we will go through with our Mercedes-EQ brand – from surface to pixel #mercedes #mercedesbenz #cool #hot #digitalart #digital #sculpture #design #art #transformation #pixel #surface #blue #artpiece #silver #silverarrow #history #future #mercedeseq
As far as the EQ subbrand goes, Mercedes will launch its first entry, a compact SUV, next year. Then, the EQ A compact hatch will arrive in 2020 followed by a seven-seater in 2022.
