The EQT will be the all-electric derivative of the upcoming T-Class, both of which will make their global debut in 2022. The EQT will be a size smaller than the V-Class and thereby cater to a larger audience
Last year, Mercedes-Benz share a teaser image showcasing a silhouette of a van and christened it the T-Class. Now, the Stuttgart-based carmaker the near-production version of the electric iteration of the T-Class – the Concept EQT.
In terms of design, the Concept EQT follows the lines of the EQ family with the overall silhouette of a typical van. Up front it gets a large bowl-shaped grille that is underlined by an LED DRL that runs along the width of the front-end and connects the sleek LED headlamps. Along the side, it looks like a size smaller than the V-Class and sits on light-weight 21-inch alloy wheels. The Concept EQT is 4,945mm in length, 1,863mm wide and 1,826mm tall. Along the rear, the design is rather simple with a rather flat boot. The taillights, however, look quite futuristic.
On the inside, the Concept EQT has signature Mercedes-Benz elements and flaunts rich materials and quality. The seats are draped in Nappa leather with certain applications comprising of recycled leather. Just like all the new-age Mercedes cars, this one too features an all-digital instrumentation and the MBUX infotainment system with the Hey Mercedes voice assistant. Other highlights include a 2+3+2 layout for the seating and a panoramic sunroof to ensure that the cabin remains airy.
Mercedes-Benz hasn’t shared details of the Concept EQT’s powertrain yet. The luxury carmaker has, however, announced that the car will go on sale globally in 2022. At the time, Mercedes will not only bring the EQT but also its ICE iterations. As of now, there’s no official confirmation about the EQT making its way to Indian shores, but given how aggressively Mercedes-Benz India is expanding its product portfolio, it could very easily be on the cards for India.
