Mercedes isn't content with Tesla stealing all the attention when it comes to electric cars so they've gone and created an all-new brand called EQ. Generation EQ previews what's to come from the brand with a coupe-like SUV that pushes the envelope when it comes to mobility technology. 

Built around a battery-powered system with two electric motors, Generation EQ aims to have a range of up to 310 miles and features permanent all-wheel-drive. Inside, the car ditches knobs for touch-based experience that is controlled via OLED screens on the steering wheel and through the main 24-inch screen on the center dash. 

Performance is also a big focus with 300 kW output that will be available in the most powerful version, which will be capable of hitting 0-62 in under five seconds. Charging the battery will done through traditional charging plugs or via wireless induction technology. As for when we'll see a real EQ on the road, Mercedes hasn't announced a firm date, but has stated that the concept previews a close to production model.
