The MBUX Hyperscreen is one of the highlights when it comes to the interior of the EV. The large, curved screen spans almost the entire width from left to right. Artificial intelligence (AI) with adaptive software will give the owner the freedom to choose from an array of infotainment and functions. The display and operating concept can also be adjusted to the user preference to make it more personalised and comfortable.
