The press service of the German brand published a video in which Marcus Schaefer, a member of the board of the Daimler concern, sitting at the wheel of a new generation of S-class sedan, talks about the features of the new product and, in particular, about the projection display with augmented reality technology.

The day after the teaser for the new generation of the MBUX infotainment system was published and the day before its actual debut, Mercedes showcases the giant center screen of its luxury W223 generation S-Class sedan. The freestanding display seems to be one of the largest in the automotive industry, although it’s not as big as the giant 17-inch panel in Tesla electric cars.

The video shows how Marcus Schaefer, a member of the board of Daimler, drives the new S-class. Moreover, this prototype received a plug-in hybrid power plant, the car can drive about 100 kilometers in electric mode.

Not only can we see the huge display of the MBUX system, Mercedes also shows us the operation of the projection display with augmented reality technology.

Although this particular prototype PHEV S-Class seems to have conventional door handles, we have seen other prototypes of the novelty that have electronic extendable handles that remain flush with the doors when not in use. Whether they are reserved only for the luxurious version of the model from the Maybach division or not is still unknown.

Details of the new S-class will be revealed gradually over the next months, and a full-fledged debut of the sedan is scheduled for September. It is known that the novelty will be available with a standard and long wheelbase, as well as in the Maybach limousine version. Four, six and eight cylinder engines, as well as their plug-in hybrid versions of the PHEV and the high-performance AMG S63, will be under the hood.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote about an old Mercedes G-Class SUV, which received huge Vossen wheels. A video appeared on YouTube that shows a three-door “helix” with large Vossen discs. The car drives off-road and the city, and even flew up once on a hill.
