The electric system itself is not the most powerful on the market — 400-volt, but at the start of sales customers will be offered rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models with two batteries to choose from.

This entire advanced touchscreen system is controlled by a 24 GB RAM, but Mercedes has already stressed that such a system will not be present in the front fascia.

Mercedes has already emphasized that such design of the front console will be optional.
