Jo BorrÃ¡s and I have actually restored our EV Bracket Fight Competition, and the match we were on today was the BMW i7 versus the Mercedes EQS. These are 2 huge high-end sedans from historical German car manufacturers, however they are really rather various. Jo and I go over the distinctions in outside styling, interior decoration, touchscreens and UI, and driving feel.
In the text listed below, I will just discuss the subjects we talked about. Listen to the following video to get the complete story– historic notes, subtle aspects of the 2 automobiles, jokes, and more.
Firstly, concerning the frontends of the automobiles, Jo offered us a little a history lesson on BMW’s well-known kidney grilles, in addition to how they developed in the 1990s and into the 2000s. It was intriguing, however at the end of the day, I still believe BMW’s presently huge upset beaver grilles are ugly– and I believed everybody did. So, I was a bit shocked when it ended up that Jo believes the “waterfall grille” (definitely a far more attractive label) is appealing. You need to eavesdrop for the complete description.
We both concurred that the Mercedes EQS has an incredibly smooth and glamorous want to it. Making a judgement on the Mercedes technique to a distinct electrical reaction to the grille location is challenging. I have a tough time forming a clear viewpoint on it. Though, something I absolutely like about it is that it stands apart– it informs individuals that this is an electrical Mercedes. Though, there are other elements to it that we like also, specifically something Jo explained, the fancy and enjoyable manner in which it can illuminate in the evening.
I do enjoy that.
As far as the interior decoration, there was a lot to state. Mercedes and BMW have actually taken rather various methods to their interiors, with Mercedes working the tech into the cars and truck a bit more efficiently and BMW taking a little bit more of a Tesla-like technique of sticking the tech screens onto the dash. And after that there are those plastic crystal door knobs …
In General, throughout the board, the Mercedes EQS appears exceptionally glamorous– the best of the best, in addition to the Lucid Air, because regard. That even extends into the feel of the drive. BMW’s electrical cars appear someplace in between Tesla cars and Mercedes cars because regard– and it’s tough to inform if it is actually being successful in its technique in discovering a good market, or if it’s stuck someplace in vehicle limbo.

In theory, your most unique and finest material goes behind a paywall. However then less individuals read it! We simply do not like paywalls, therefore we have actually chosen to ditch ours.
