CARS.COM — The all-electric SUV concept Mercedes-Benz introduced at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in September has now made it stateside. We’re talkin’ ’bout the Generation EQ, now making an electrifying debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Generation EQ could be an SUV designed under the direction of Steve Jobs in its spartan sleekness, smooth lines and enticingly simple color scheme. A rounded, reflective, glasslike grille is adorned by a series of blue LED lines that surround a large M-B star in the center, with wedge-shaped LED headlights at the flanks. Large intakes lie on either side of a purse-lipped bumper, and blue LED accents span the lower profile and line the charge port over the right rear wheel well.

Things get a little more ostentatious in the cabin, which is appointed with futuristic-looking seating and dash- and console-mounted displays, none of which would be out of place in “Wall-E.” The ultra-widescreen LED touch display measures 24 inches and offers no physical knobs. In fact, no traditional controls exist anywhere but for seat adjustment. The seats, into which the speakers are built, appear to float along with the expansive center console.
