Mercedes-Benz CLA

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA made its appereance to the public for the very first time. It featured its MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system and some new functions. The new Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupé is a highly intelligent automotive specimen. It offers a number of solutions, from the MBUX Interior Assistant that identifies operation requests on the basis of movements to lend the vehicle interior a certain level of intelligence, to augmented reality for navigation and the ability to understand indirect voice commands as well as Energizing Coach for some useful fitness recommendations.

Mercedes-Benz EQC

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is the first purely battery-electric EQ series model. It also represents a symbol for the start of a new mobility era at Daimler. Visually the crossover SUV is a pioneer of avant-garde electric aesthetics, representing a combination of convenience, quality and suitability.

These elements come together with a dynamic performance, thanks to two electric motors at the front and rear axles. The combined output is, in particular, 300 kW. EQC delivers an electric range of over 450 km.


Vision Urbanetic

The Vision Urbanetic is a completely new mobility concept for demand-based, efficient and sustainable mobility. In particular, the visionary concept is based on an autonomously driving, electrically driven chassis suitable for bodies intended to transport passengers or cargo.

Moreover, the network-compatible Vision Urbanetic is part of an ecosystem in which logistics companies, local public transport companies as well as private individuals can digitally send their transport requests across urban environments. The concept reduces traffic volume, relieves inner-city infrastructure and contributes to a new urban quality of life.
