Mercedes-Benz unveiled a new EQS luxury sedan with a 56-inch touchscreen that spans the entire dashboard.
The 2021 electric vehicle has three screens that work together as one for an instrument cluster behind the wheel for all the speed and function information you would expect, an infotainment screen, and another screen in front of the passenger to do…not sure exactly.
Is this safe? The jury is out on that one. A study by AAA shows that these screens can be very distracting to drivers and increase the risk of accidents, especially for older drivers who needed to look at the screen to figure them out for 8.5 seconds longer than younger drivers. 8.5 seconds!
