The EQS has been confirmed as a 2021 release by Mercedes-Benz and is an all-electric equivalent of the brand’s S-Class. The EQS will also arrive as an alternative to the likes of the Jaguar XJ, Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan as a premium, luxury electric saloon.
While the intricacies of the design are kept under camouflage wraps for now, the EQS has a more streamlined design than the Mercedes S-Class with a long, sloping roofline and low ride height. It’s still unclear how much the EQS will differ from the 2019 Vision EQS concept car, but Mercedes says it will still have the ‘one bow’ proportion and a dramatic, fluid structure.
It appears to feature a full-length panoramic sunroof and, while a space for the ‘grille’ is visible, it is unknown whether it will be made up of the same illuminated LED matrix grille found on the 2019 concept car. However, it does look like the EQS will definitely take some styling hints from the ultra-modern Vision EQS concept, such as seamlessly integrated rear lights.
The interior is expected to be just as, if not more, lavish as the S-Class, taking inspiration from the luxury yacht industry for an enveloping cabin design. A lengthy wheelbase and Mercedes’ new Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA) mean the EQS will more than likely have a spacious interior and, if the concept interior elements come to fruition, passengers can expect high quality materials and futuristic accents.
The EQS will offer sportscar-like performance and makes the 0 – 62mph sprint in under 4.5 seconds, all while offering an impressive ‘comfortable’ range of up to 434 miles according to WLTP testing. The top speed will be limited to 125mph and drivers can expect superior handling and instant power when the acceleration is hit. What’s more, the EQS can recharge to 80% in less than 20 minutes and the driver will have access to the growing ITONITY network of rapid charging points around Europe.
While it’s not yet been confirmed, the EQS is expected to be armed with an impressive digital roster in order for it to keep up with competition. The EQS will more than likely feature a new version of the latest Mercedes MBUX infotainment system, operated by touch control across a singular or dual screen.
The Vision EQS concept car places ergonomic design at the forefront, featuring a central display that emerges from the centre console as well as driver and front passenger side displays. It also features an intelligent Connected Light feature; however, we do not yet know how much of this tech will be transferred to the production EQS, if any.
