What's in a name?

Ever wondered why all Mercedes EVs start with the letters E and Q? For the Germans, EQ is reference for ‘emotions and intelligence.’ Mercedes, like many traditional automotive brands, are moving away from the tradition of making ‘conventional cars’ and ushering in an entirely new technology. New can be intimidating too and hence, Mercedes wants to underline that while its EVs are intelligent, they also bring out the same degree of emotion as all Mercedes products have thus far.
