You’ve seen the new Mercedes-Benz EQS’ available dashboard-spanning Hyperscreen and probably commented on how the exterior looks like a jelly bean. Most likely, you wondered whether this electric luxury sedan is a Tesla wannabe with a three-pointed star on the nose. Nope. It’s not.
During two days of relatively low-speed cruising through Switzerland, surrounded by the small country’s expansive network of speed cameras and police itching to levy steep fines for even minor infractions, we never saw much more than 75 mph. Certainly, we never engaged in anything that could be described as being “ludicrous,” and we never saw Plaid. In fact, we didn’t think much about Tesla or face-melting acceleration at all.
