The Car Of Tomorrow? My Ride In The Mercedes Concept EQ

If you’re one of my fellow smartphone lovers you’ll know that the word “concept” in a product name means two things: 1) it’s gonna be packed with some awesome and/or insane features, and 2) it’s probably never going to be released. Well, it’s not much different over in the world of cars. The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQ certainly packs its share of speculative vaporware and a heaping helping of “just because it’s cool” whiz-bang eyecatchers. But it also brings a lot of useful features that actually will appear in cars of the future – including the Mercedes EQC for 2019, expected to be announced later this year. Join me at SXSW in Austin, TX as I experience firsthand the car of the future: the Mercedes Concept EQ!
