The headlamps flip into "lampspeakers", due to the fact additionally they characteristic as a loudspeaker on the identical time.

The EQC 4x4² is an electric powered vehicle of extremes. Mercedes-Benz desires to check the boundaries with this car, and display that e-mobility isn't simply urban, however additionally practicable off-road. The one-off changed into evolved via way of means of a cross-departmental crew beneathneath improvement engineer Jürgen Eberle which has already positioned the E four hundred All-Terrain 4x4² on its studded wheels. "Our purpose is to mix cutting-edge luxurious and sustainability with emotional attraction. The EQC 4x4² suggests how fun sustainable mobility may be.

The EQC 4x4² has a extra effective AVAS composed particularly for it and makes use of the headlamps as outside audio system for this purpose. The motive being that the sound specialists of Mercedes-Benz have made innovative use of the to be had set up area withinside the headlamp housings - the "lampspeaker" changed into born.
