I guess this is a way to show off the interior and tech without the exterior design being shown? Weird.
It confirms the interior from those spy shots, so I'd assume the exterior's right too.

I'd call it MBSUX. Who the f*ck cares about in car infotainment? Anyway the most important feature (show on the map where cops are), no one has. It is a car, not a smartphone. Instead of wasting effort on this, let them find a solution for puncture proof tires and blind proof windshields.

They are going so ridiculously all-in on their own infotainment system...when 90% of people out there now just want Android Auto or Apple CarPlay to handle all that.
Elon won't allow CarPlay/Android Auto, and probably can't, given the lack of non-touchscreen controls. Having CP/AA take over the screen would be bad in a car where the screen controls almost everything. I'm not sure yet if that's a consideration with this S Class or if it's just dedication to copying the Model S.

Let Tesla do its thing then, it's not like they are going to even exist in 10-years time once the Germans and Japanese are all in on electric. Who wants a crummy unreliable heap that doesn't have any prestige other than being the first wave of electric cars. Consumers aren't stupid, Tesla have failed promise after promise and the amount of bad press they get is laughable...you wait and see their sales nosedive after VW ID releases...people love that 'German reliability'. Probably no more reliable than the Tesla 😂.

Personally, I just want a car that does CarPlay - that's my maps constantly up to date and with satellite view - something you can only get on high ends vehicle's navigation offerings right now. The Apple Music interface on CarPlay is also perfect now it has album artwork. These are the only two things I want to ever see on my screen anyway...and with a jailbroken iPhone you can even get YouTube playing for passengers!
