Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the ninth model in its EQ line-up of vehicles - the EQT Concept electric van. The T-Class offering is slated to be launched in 2022. The near-series-production concept vehicle will fall in the same small van segment as Mercedes' upcoming Citan commercial van. The EQT will be a seven-seater offering and is being jointly developed with Renault.

1

Brand-typical design language


The Mercedes EQT concept can easily be recognized as a member of the Mercedes-EQ family. It is distinguished by its balanced proportions and a powerful stance. Its look is characterised by the black panel front with LED headlights, 21-inch alloy wheels and the panoramic roof. A light strip connects its front and rear headlights. The EQT's high-gloss black paintwork creates a fascinating contrast to this.

2

Stylish interior


The interior is characterised by a contrast of black and white. The seats are covered in white nappa leather while the plaited leather applications on the seat centre panel are made of recycled leather. The upper section of the instrument panel is shaped like a wing profile. The round air vents are covered in high-gloss black, galvanised trim elements. The multifunction steering wheel with Touch Control buttons give the vehicle a high quality feel.

3

MBUX infotainment system


The MBUX infotainment system in EQT brings the innovative operating and display concept to the small van segment. The infotainment system can be operated using the free-standing central display with touch function as well as using the touch control buttons on the steering wheel. Optionally, it can also be operated using 'Hey Mercedes' voice assistant. Equipped with Artificial Intelligence, the MBUX has the ability to teach itself.

4

High on spaciousness


The concept van comes with a lot of space for the occupants as well as luggage. Three children can be seated in the second row of seats. The steep rear with an upright tailgate and window allows for a lot of storage space. This can be increased by folding down the seats in the third row. The cargo area is also integrated with an electric longboard which is fixed beneath a plexiglass lid fitted in an aluminium frame. The electric longboard is also made of aluminium and features a star pattern.
