The all-electric EQS blends progressive design, sustainable technology, unmatched class and pure performance. It sits as the pinnacle of EV’s and represents the unlimited potential of sustainable driving.

The 2022 EQS sedan will be the flagship of the German automaker’s electrified future.

The EQS’ curvaceous bodywork is designed to slide effortlessly through the air for maximum efficiency, and its grandiose cabin is fitted with luxurious appointments and state-of-the-art features that deliver the X-factor Mercedes in renowned for.

The EQS's clean shape delivers a coefficient of drag as low as a claimed 0.20, a new record for production cars.
The 107.8-kWh battery helps the EQS 450+ register a 485-mile range on the WLTP test procedure used in Germany. That should equate to about a 360-mile range in the U.S.

The EQS450+ features an electric motor that generates 329 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. The EQS580 4Matic has an electric motor on each axle, which translates to all-wheel drive and a total system output of 516 horsepower and 611 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes estimates the rear-drive variant will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.

Every EQS rides on an adaptive air suspension and rolls on rims that range in size between 19 and 21 inches. Standard rear-axle-steering system can angle the rear wheels up to 4.5 degrees, and there’s an optional upgrade that can turn them 10 degrees. This technology is intended to both make the 205.4-inch-long sedan easier to manoeuvre in tight spots and increase its stability at high speeds.


The rear-drive EQS 450+ has 329 horsepower, with the dual-motor all-wheel-drive 580 4Matic packing 516 horsepower and 631 pound-feet of torque.
The rear steering can countersteer the rear axle up to 10 degrees.

The EQS interior is kitted with exceptional materials and countless luxury amenities including extensive ambient interior lighting, headrest pillows for front and rear passengers, and an Executive Rear Seat package with massage functions. The optional yet unmissable feature is the Mercedes Hyperscreen – a giant wall-to-wall panel of glass that stretches across the instrument panel and encompasses the infotainment system. As more traditional alternative to this digitised futuristic dashboard is available.

Thanks to a completely flat floor as well as a lengthy 126.4-inch wheelbase, the EQS has a spacious interior. Cargo space also looks to be especially generous thanks to its large hatchback.

The optional Hyperscreen stretches across the entire dash and measures almost 57 inches.
The EQS doesn't have front trunk space, but its rear storage is bigger than you'll find in the S-class.
