The Mercedes-Benz EQX Concept’s dynamic character gives the German automaker fresh new “VISION” to chase





A futuristic Mercedes-Benz concept car that uses the VISON AVTR as a canvas for extending the prototype’s possibilities for an even better human-machine interaction.

Back in January 2020, Mercedes-Benz showed to the world VISION AVTR concept inspired by the blockbuster movie Avatar. The idea revolves around a cohesive bond between humans and machines with a brain-computer interface (BCI) to control the vehicle just with mere thoughts. Now, designer Xiqiao Wang takes this future-forward vision a step further with the Mercedes-Benz EQX concept. The awe-inspiring sci-fi coupe understandably has the Mercedes-Benz EQ influence written all over it.

The idea here is to employ futuristic automotive technologies and modern-day design prowess to redefine the travel experience. This is done by amalgamating autonomous driving and unified infotainment systems to build an integrated information space. The airy character of the transparent cabin is reciprocated by the exterior having a glossy metal body and glass screen windshield extending from the wheel arches to the taillights for light refraction on a whole. Therefore, bringing to the fore contrasting internal and external design language.

Mercedes-Benz EQX’s voluptuous curved body shape evokes a sense of sensual purity, running back to the rear which lights up gradually from the interior cabin to signify emotional integration of man and machine. The designer fully adapts the VISION AVTR’s design for the individually steered wheels of the car which perfectly compliment the flowing aerodynamic body.

Xiqiao with this concept has managed to strike a good balance between a futuristic automotive character and an airy interactive interior that evokes one to jump right into the driving seat and take it for a spin into the woods on a golden sunset draped landscape. Perhaps, Mercedes-Benz could draw some inspiration from his concept to take their highly acclaimed VISION AVTR to the next level!
