    The front reminds me of a face lifted 1st gen Ford Edge

    I thought they were going with the theme of GL before the names of their SUVs? (Besides the G-Wagen)

    It would've been funny if they called it a GLEQC instead.

    GLQ would’ve been a better name.

    It at least makes more sense on an EV than an ICE vehicle.

    Pretty much this, there is not much to get excited over when viewing an electric motor anyway... Unless you are intrigued by "high voltage" warning signs.

    The front looks like an Outlander PHEV, complete with a restyled Mitsubishi badge.

    Idiots. They put the charge port in same location as gas pump inlet. Huh? They should have put it either at the rear under a tail-light like Tesla or at the front of the car like on a Leaf. Location they used is both ugly and stupid. Fail. :(

    Can't say I'm too impressed with this effort. How does it not have a frunk? The batteries are in the floor and the motors are next to the wheels. C'mon Mercedes. So far only Jaguar has managed to produce a true Tesla competitor with it's I-Pace.

    I'm not an SUV fan but this one I like.

    If I want a Porsche with a Mercedes badge, I know what to buy.

    Not surprised in the slightest their first 100% EV in the lineup is an SUV.

    Interior doesn't look bad though.

    It's like a Range Rover, only much better looking.

    I think the front is hideous, it looks like the front of a family car from the 90's stuck on to an SUV. I can't quite believe they went with such a dated design and also one which makes the car look cheap.

    I hope this design language stays within the EQ range and doesn't spread to the normal Merc's, although their 'triangles everywhere' design language is also questionable imo.

    Mercedes-Benz claims that electric cars are going to be cheaper than ICE's, seven years from now.
