In order to match intelligence, Mercedes -Benz adopts a new screen design. Traditional dual -screen is no longer popular?
In the past week, luxury brands have released a large number of new SUVs and concept cars. While the appearance is constantly stunning us, the interior design style is still a traditional large -screen style or even screen interior, especially in the automotive industry, in the automotive industry After the interior design entered the era of the screen, each family scrambled to use the screen, or the magic reform. Today, the interaction of smart cockpit has become increasingly important. The traditional dual -screen design is not so popular. So under the wet, can the even screen design improve its own sense of interaction experience in a new form?
The earliest use of the upper -screen design of Mercedes -Benz, released its own new EQS SUV model. The interior screen uses the latest Hyperscreen. The same interior design that has been unveiled when EQS was released more than a year ago. After entering a new stage, let’s take a look at why Mercedes -Benz has shifted from the traditional dual -screen design to another direction.
Mercedes -Benz first adopted a dual -screen design on the W222 generation S -Class released 9 years ago. For a time, it became a model for the car -making industry to be imitated. The new generation S -Class W223 listed in 2020. The overall interior The style has happened, and the screen layout is like a smart electric vehicle. The independent instrument+independent vertical central control screen.
Why does Mercedes turn to large screen interior?
From dual -screen to large vertical screens, the design has changed hugely. Mercedes -Benz designers firmly say that vertical screens are more suitable for drivers’ habits. The new generation of GLCs released by the Mercedes -Benz Class and spy photos are arranged for the new S -Class interior style. The subsequent release of Mercedes -Benz EQS also made everyone see the trend of the interior after Mercedes -Benz’s electrification. The recently released Mercedes -Benz EQS SUV models have completely used the overall Dalian screen design of EQS before. Now it can be seen clearly. Mercedes -Benz currently has three sets of interior style:
Class A, B, E -Class, and they have rounded the corresponding SUV models, GLS, and still use dual -screen interior styles; C -Class, GLC, and S -Class are designed with split -type screen; EQS and EQS SUV adopt use All -in -one three -united screen.
I expect Mercedes -Benz’s current models with dual -screen interior. When the next change is replaced, it will also move closer to the new S -Class interior design style.
Intelligent becoming a “magnifying glass” with dual -screen limitation
At present, the use of dual -screen screens is still a very “hot” interior layout method, but this interior design is more due to the further expansion and experience of intelligentization.
Like Audi’s MMI system and BMW’s latest ID.8 operating system, although their screen size is not large, the menu division is relatively fine. , Make a single page rich as possible, but complement each other, making the menu settings extremely rigid, but too regular, lack of luxury and beauty,
The MBUX system on the Mercedes -Benz dual -screen model as an example: The design is really good -looking, full of luxury, but the screen is slightly narrow, the screen ratio is 11: 4, which can expand the upper limit of the information. The directory is concentrated in the position of one -half of the screen from top to bottom. The icon is very large. In order to facilitate the selection of users, there is a lot of white space in the upper and lower parts. In the intelligent interaction, it is becoming more and more important. Today, the screen size needs to be further added big.
Especially before there have been too many precedents, Tesla’s central control iPad, a large screen integrates all physical buttons, air -conditioning, air conditioning, sunroof and even rearview mirror adjust The screen is processed, and the interaction brought by the large screen at the same time is better than the dual -screen screen to a certain extent.
The dual -screen screen is a straight line parallel to the operating table, which is prone to reflection in strong light. At present, many models are designed as an angle shape, allowing the central control screen to slightly tilt to the driver’s side to solve this problem. The new 7 Series uses this method.
At the same time, the position of the central control screen is actually relatively high and deeper, which causes the driver to touch the hand when touching the operation. It needs to extend the arm to the screen. It often needs to move the body forward. In fact, it has a certain impact. When Mercedes -Benz initially used the dual -screen screen, the central control screen cannot be touched. The buttons of the steering wheel, or the touchpad of the central control area to control the content of the control screen, to allow the driver to drive in the driver’s driving During the process, do not reach out to the touch screen, so that the attention is scattered and causing danger. Then there is a touch screen function, and the touchpad is also retained. By today’s version, the touchpad has been removed, because the friends who have used it can know how difficult it is to use, and the chat is better than nothing. Now you can see the touchpad. This allows the driver to use a steering wheel case or reach out to the screen to control it, which will indeed have a certain impact on driving safety.
Dual -screen screen can be “eternal” in another way
We can also see that more and more models have abandoned the design of the screen, or the design style of the continuous screen has been changed. From double 12.3 inches to two screens of different sizes, separate. In particular, the new forces were building cars, and they began to abandon the dual -screen screen of Benz S -Class with Benz S -Class, turning to large screens similar to iPad, such as: Extreme 001, Weilai and other models. The ideal L9 gave up the former three -screen screen and connected the two large iPads together, further increasing the screen size and displayable information richness.
Although Xiaopeng P7 uses a dual -screen screen, the size of the screen -controlled screen is large enough and the amount of information that can be displayed is very large. This kind of innovation made without giving up the dual -screen style.
In this context, especially in the process of intelligentization, which is continuously accelerated. Today, using a large screen is definitely a trend. The interactive screen becomes as big as possible, leaving more for future display operating systems to show more. In the process of the iteration of the cockpit, there can be stronger adaptability. This is also a technical redundant design that makes the screen “outdated” slower.
Mercedes -Benz fuel and pure electric interior, in fact, the same goal
If the interior of the new S -Class is a follow -up trend, then the interior on EQS allows Mercedes -Benz to prove it again. Mercedes -Benz’s Hyperscreen appeared. The curved glass is covered with two 12.3 -inch and a 17.7 -inch screen. The overall highness makes people have to admire Mercedes -Benz.
This is a answer sheet handed over by Mercedes -Benz in the era of electrification. The 12.3 -inch driver display (dashboard), MBUX 17.7 -inch information entertainment touch screen (OLED), and 12.3 -inch passenger touch screen on the right side ( OLED), this huge curved screen unit can almost sweep from the left A -pillar to the right A -pillar. The luxurious and technological arrangement is clearly clear. It not only uses the screen design, but also avoids some limitations of dual -screen screens.
This set of interior has obviously made the driver’s operating area larger, making the driver’s operation distance closer, and the display effect and information volume are much richer than before In terms of, the dual -screen period has been further supplemented, and the map shows incomplete problems. Although there are large differences in EQS and S -class interior design, it is obvious that they can be seen in common. With the central control screen, the viewing and EQS should be very different. Mercedes also said that the interior design of EQS will not appear on fuel models. Although the two have different perceptions, they are actually “different ways to return” and are two expression forms of fuel vehicles and pure electric vehicles.
Mercedes -Benz has also made some adjustments to the MUBX system for the EQS screen. All important functions that need to be involved when driving EQS will be directly presented in the initial interface of the car menu, that is, the first -class menu, the air -conditioning temperature on the EQS, and the air conditioner temperature, and the temperature of the air conditioner. Setting navigation and other settings about vehicle status can be completed by extremely short operations. And because of the full -touch operation logic, in order to cooperate with the optimization of this area, the car system interface on the EQS has also been re -designed. EQS almost removes all physical buttons.
Nowadays, in the context of intelligent waves, various car companies are also crazy in interior. Mercedes and two sets of interior design languages can continue to be the leaders of the times. Looking back at the history of Mercedes -Benz models It can be found that although they all have profound historical imprints, they also have extremely distinctive design characteristics.
You may also be intoxicated from the traditional luxury of W221 to the modern luxury admiration set by W222 to W222. You may not have eased from the peak of W222 to W223’s style of painting. You have to accept the transformation of traditional car companies to the new era under the wave of intelligence, letting time be witnessed. Let us see the interior style of the two sets of Mercedes -Benz electric intelligence. Round, the trend may come back again. Maybe Mercedes -Benz will find the better solution of the interior design to shock us again.
