At CES 2022, Mercedes Benz showed off its stunning vision for the future of electric mobility with the Vision EQXX concept car. It boasted a range of 1,000 km, the lowest drag coefficient in a car, future-facing sustainable materials, and space-age infotainment technology. Particularly, it had a 47.5-inch hyper screen which was made out of a single pane of glass stretching horizontally across the dashboard. Now, Mercedes has revealed that LG was behind the screen and it will be leveraging the very same technology in the next generation EQS which will debut later this year. 

Mercedes and LG call it a pillar to pillar screen which also boasts a new human-machine interface. It uses LG’s IVI system which was designed specifically for Mercedes and formed a curved glass for the same. LG boasts that it is pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with cutting-edge display technology.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to work in close collaboration with a trusted partner such as Mercedes-Benz AG,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. 

“Being named a valued supplier of automotive displays by Mercedes-Benz AG last year gives us immense pride in knowing that the partnership is showing great results,” he added.
