2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class Spied: Big Changes Beneath Its Classy Body

  2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class Spied: Big Changes Beneath Its Classy Body 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class Spied: Big Changes Beneath Its Classy BodyWhy It Matters: Each new S-class generation establishes the brand’s newest styling and technological direction for the rest of the lineup, and this one will be no different. Our sources in Stuttgart indicate that the new S-class’s interior will be seriously upgraded—likely incorporating even more technology—although we struggle to imagine how Mercedes could make the environment any more plush. However the automaker reinvents that wheel, expect its look and capabilities to trickle down to lesser Mercedes cars and SUVs.

The electric crossover will go on sale early in 2019.

Mercedes-Benz is readying an entire range of electric vehicles. Previewed by a series of EQ concepts, only recently have we seen early prototypes of production models taking to the street ahead of their supposed 2019 debut. This new set, which shows the EQ C crossover, doesn’t show much, but it does give us a better idea of what to expect.

BMW X7 SUV Spied Testing Far Away From Home

The automaker hasn’t been shy about hiding this big people mover, even going so far as to officially announce X7 pre-production complete with photos of camouflaged models and SUVs under construction. Still, there will likely be some changes between those first pre-production test mules and the final production-ready X7, so we’ll be keeping a watchful eye as the year progresses.

Even under all that camouflage, there are some key production details to take note of. The headlights, for example, draw similarities to the original concept with the LED running lights surrounding the main fixture. The faux grille also features a large Mercedes-Benz logo front and center, undoubtedly hiding sensors for semi-autonomous technology behind it. The wheels are also completely unique, and the rear features a sleek set of LED taillights that look production ready.

As a concept, the Generation EQ SUV came powered by an electric motor at each axle, combining for a total horsepower figure of 402 (300 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of toruqe. That setup allowed for a 0-62 mile-per-hour (96 kilometers per hour) sprint of less than five seconds, and a range of at least 311 miles (500 kilometers). Here’s hoping that we see a similar setup carry over to the production version.

  Spied! Audi SQ8 Flaunts its Quad Exhaust Tips Sporty variant of flagship SUV could be a hybridThe Audi Q8 is set to begin production this year in Bratislava, Slovakia. We have yet to see the brand's flagship SUV in production guise, but the automaker is already working on a hotter SQ8 variant, as these spy shots show.

The new EQ C will be built at Mercedes-Benz’s Vance, Alabama facility, which will soon be the recipient of a $1 billion investment. Not only will the EQ C be built in Alabama, but so will a large majority of the EQ range. Following the EQ C crossover, a smaller EQ A will join the electric lineup.

Production of the EQ C won't kick off late in 2018 or early 2019, but if you live in Norway, you can reserve the vehicle today for a cool $2,500. No word on how much the crossover will cost when it officially goes on sale.
