It only makes sense that the new flagship infotainment system would live in the new flagship EV, right?
We’re fans of Mercedes-Benz’s MBUX infotainment system here at Roadshow. With cleanly laid out menus, excellent responsiveness and good voice recognition, it’s easy to like, and that’s looking like it’ll be more true than ever at CES when Mercedes unveils the MBUX Hyperscreen.Elon Musk-like naming hyperbole aside, the Hyperscreen sounds pretty cool. According to Mercedes’ teaser announcement Monday, it’s a full-width screen that spans the entire dash on the forthcoming flagship EQS EV. If the new S-Class is anything to go by, and we suspect it is, that’s a seriously wide screen.

Mercedes plans to fully unveil the MBUX Hyperscreen during its remote CES press conference, which is scheduled for Jan. 11 at 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET).
