A new development to Mercedes-Benz’ upcoming electric vehicle (EV) release has come to light, and it claims to offer information to the driver and front passenger in a more “contextual way.”

Mercedes-Benz unveiled its new MBUX Hyperscreen in a press release Thursday (via Yahoo Finance), set for release with its upcoming 2022 EQS EV. The screen takes up the entire dashboard at about 56 inches wide. It also includes what the company calls “situational” displays, with information moving around on the screen according to the circumstance.

More impressive yet is that the Hyperscreen uses AI technology to get to know the users of the car, and to better predict a comfortable workflow for the driver.

Mercedes-Benz Member of the Board of Management Sajjad Khan said, “The MBUX Hyperscreen is both the brain and nervous system of the car.” Khan continued, “The MBUX Hyperscreen continually gets to know the customer better and delivers a tailored, personalised infotainment and operating offering before the occupant even has to click or scroll anywhere.”

While it’s tough to say if the Mercedes-Benz’ Hyperscreen can outdo the simplicity of Tesla’s infotainment system, it’s certainly going to be interesting to see the dashboard screen in use.
