Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the EQS SUV. The German marque says the new electrically powered EQ offers plenty of space, comfort, and connectivity for “up to” seven passengers in an avant-garde, luxurious interior.

The tall-riding EQS shares the long, 3 210 mm wheelbase of the similarly named saloon. The EQS SUV measures 5 125 mm bow to stern,  1 959 mm wide and 1 718 mm in height (“over” 20 mm higher than the saloon model).

Mercedes says these “generous” exterior dimensions translate to a capacious interior. The second row of seats offers electric adjustability. A third row, comprising individual chairs, is available as an option. The automaker claims “up to” four golf bags can fit in the boot. 

“The highlight of the interior”, the EQS boasts Mercedes’ MBUX Hyperscreen set-up. This “special equipment” item features three displays for the digital instruments, infotainment and the front passenger. Benz says the Dolby Atmos sound system takes the audio experience to a “new level”.

The EQS SUV was revealed in 450+, 450 4Matic and 580 4Matic guises. The rear-wheel-drive 450+’s permanently excited synchronous motor, sited on the aft axle, produces 265 kW and 568 Nm of torque. This model has a claimed electric range between 536 and 660 km. 

The 4Matic-equipped 450 is endowed with a duo of electric motors, sited on the fore and aft axles, respectively. This model churns out the same amount of power as the 450+ but produces 800 Nm. The claimed electric range comes in at 507 to 613 km. 

The current range-topping model — the 580 4Matic — twin electric-motor arrangement produces 400 kW and 858 Nm. Benz says the top-tier EQS has a claimed electric range of 507 to 613 km, the same as its abovementioned 4Matic stablemate.
