Mercedes-Benz Unveils the EQS SUV

Mercedes-Benz has taken another monumental step in the evolution of electric mobility with the introduction of the EQS SUV. This all-electric SUV epitomises the brand’s commitment to delivering opulence, cutting-edge technology, and contemporary luxury.

Spacious Interior and All-Electric Innovation

The EQS SUV redefines spaciousness and comfort, accommodating up to seven passengers within its opulent interior. This remarkable cabin experience is enriched by the Electric Art Interior and Exterior package, which seamlessly blends modern aesthetics with cutting-edge functionality.

Equipped with powerful electric motors and the responsive 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the EQS SUV delivers exceptional performance. An intelligent OFFROAD driving mode ensures the vehicle’s versatility, making it suitable for light off-road adventures. This combination of luxury and capability sets new standards in the luxury SUV segment.

Elegance in Design

Mercedes-Benz has always embraced the philosophy of sensual purity, and the EQS SUV is no exception. Immaculately designed, it stands as a testament to the brand’s commitment to contemporary luxury. Its novel vehicle architecture sets it apart from traditional internal combustion engine SUVs, offering a unique blend of functionality, aerodynamics, and aesthetics.

The EQS SUV, built on the foundation of the aerodynamic world champion EQS Saloon, showcases a seamless and aerodynamic design that optimises spaciousness and efficiency, setting a new standard for SUVs.

Digital Innovation

Inside the EQS SUV, a digital revolution awaits passengers. The MBUX system, powered by intelligent software, provides a personalised experience, offering suggestions tailored to individual preferences. The second generation of the MBUX operating system ensures a seamless user experience, making it intuitive and adaptive.

The “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant has evolved to be even more capable, offering enhanced dialogue and interaction. It can perform various tasks, from taking phone calls to explaining vehicle functions, and it can even integrate with home technology and household devices.

Practical Luxury

One of the standout features of the EQS SUV is its versatile luggage capacity. The second row of seats is electrically adjustable, allowing the luggage compartment to expand from 645 litres to up to 880 litres, even with five occupants on board. This practicality ensures that the EQS SUV can handle a range of cargo needs, from groceries to golf bags.

Outstanding Electric Performance

The EQS 450 4MATIC SUV is the flagship model of this groundbreaking lineup. It features a potent lithium-ion battery delivering 265 kW and 800 Nm of torque, coupled with a substantial 108.4 kWh battery capacity. This results in an estimated range of up to 616 kilometres according to WLTP standards, providing ample range for a variety of journeys.

Energy Efficiency at Your Fingertips
