The EQS SUV is the first all-electric luxury SUV from Mercedes-EQ with space for up to seven people. Its world premiere took place on April 19, online.
The Mercedes EQS SUV is the third model based on the new modular architecture for premium and luxury electric vehicles, after the flagship EQS and the EQE technology sedan. The EQS SUV combines the progressive design and comfort of the EQS sedan with the space and capabilities of SUVs. Thanks to powerful electric motors, 4MATIC all-wheel drive and intelligent OFFROAD driving mode, the EQS SUV handles lighter terrain with agility.
The new SUV will be available from the summer of 2022 in three versions – EQS 450+, EQS 450 4MATIC and EQS 580 4MATIC, as the top model has a maximum power of 400 kW (536 hp) and torque of 858 Nm. Depending on the equipment and configuration, and thanks to its 107.8 kWh battery, the EQS SUV can travel up to 660 kilometers on WLTP.
Auto Trendy’s take:
We, at Auto Trendy, believe that the latest addition to Mercedes-Benz's electric range will appeal to people with active lifestyles. For families, the EQS SUV offers third-row seats and multimedia in the rear; adventurers have a lot of space and flexibility they need; technology fans who want to drive an electric SUV have the best choice, and for sound enthusiasts, the Dolby Atmos sound system will take audio excellence to new heights.
