Mercedes-Benz has created a “transparent” electric crossover EQCOctober 14, 2020
The prototype demonstrator was created by 40 company interns
Mercedes-Benz has introduced a “transparent” electric crossover EQC. To look inside the model, 40 interns of the concern cut holes in the body and illuminated the “insides” with LED strips.
The transparent car was built by 40 trainees at the Daimler AG training center. As a basis for the demonstrator, the engineers took a pre-production prototype of the electric crossover EQC 400. To view the design of the model from the inside, experts cut holes in the right side of the car body. This work took the interns 36 hours. It took another 50 hours to smooth out the metal edges and then paint and polish the body.
To illuminate the interior of the car, Daimler’s trainees placed 15 meters of LED strip around the perimeter of the working area. In addition, about 50 meters of wiring for power cables was carried out in the electrocrossover, and two microcontrollers were installed to regulate the LED backlight. Over the next 24 hours, engineers converged three LED strips behind the car and connected them to the rear lights. To explain the demonstrator’s design, trainees placed multimedia screens in the EQC.
Mercedes-Benz EQC rolled off the assembly line in 2019. The electrocrossover is available in the EQC400 for the global market and the EQC350 for China. The older model is equipped with two electric motors, the output of which is 420 horsepower. The power reserve is 417 kilometers. The Chinese modification is equipped with a 286 horsepower power plant. The power reserve on a single charge is also 417 kilometers.
