Mercedes-Benz unveils giant Hyperscreen display for electric EQS sedan

Three screens under a single sheet of glass

When the Tesla Model S debuted a decade ago, one of the most dazzling features was its 17-inch touchscreen display, which was enormous for the day. How times have changed.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the 56-inch wide door-to-door Hyperscreen that will cover the dashboard of its upcoming flagship EQS electric sedan.

The curving, scratch-resistant surface isn't a continuous screen, however, but covers three OLED displays that include an instrument cluster, a central infotainment/climate-control interface and a screen in front of the passenger seat. It also has two air vents poking out of it to help "connect the digital and physical world," according to Mercedes-Benz.

The system is equipped with haptic feedback that vibrates the surface when icons are touched and is the  Mercedes-Benz MBUX brain, which uses AI to learn a driver's habits and can suggest features like the heated seats and air suspension, based on past experience.
