The brand new EQS SUV from Mercedes-Benz is an elegant electric SUV with up to seven seats and 600 km of range. The SUV's avant-garde, the opulent cabin provides enough room, comfort, and connection for up to seven people. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUV can handle mild terrain with ease, thanks to its powerful electric motors, quick 4MATIC all-wheel drive, and an intelligent OFFROAD driving mode.
The new Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUV shares the same long wheelbase (3210 millimeters) as the EQS Saloon but is more than 20 millimeters longer. 5125/1959/1718 millimetres (length/width/height). The interior proportions benefit from these expansive SUV dimensions and the advantages of purpose-built electric platform architecture. As standard, the second row of seats may be modified electrically. The boot may accommodate up to four golf bags. The third row of seats is optional, providing two more individual seats and full comfort options for all passengers.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS Saloon is the current production car aerodynamics world champion. Its purpose-built design, smooth underbody, and a typically closed radiator shutter served as an excellent starting point for aerodynamic improvements on the Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUV. In addition, optimization of typical SUV flow features resulted in a hitherto unmatched mix of spaciousness and aerodynamic efficiency.
All Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUVs use an electric drive train (eATS) on the rear axle, while 4MATIC models also feature an eATS on the front axle. The Torque Shift feature in the 4MATIC vehicles guarantees a changeable allocation of driving torque between the rear and front electric motors, allowing for the most efficient eATS to be used in each circumstance. The electric motors are synchronous permanent magnet motors (PSM). This design has several advantages, including a high power density, high efficiency, and high power constancy.
The EQS Saloon was the first model in which wholly new electric vehicle features could be triggered via over-the-air upgrades in numerous areas (OTA). This offering is significantly increased with the addition of the EQS SUV. For instance, later, Trailer Manoeuvring Assist or MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) Augmented Reality Navigation might be engaged.
Mercedes-Benz is taking a significant step toward zero-emission transportation with the EQS electric SUV, bringing the company closer to achieving Ambition 2039. The model is entirely CO2-neutral in its production. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUV demonstrates real solutions for emission-free transportation, resource conservation intelligence, and a responsible circular economy.
The new Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUV's chassis is comprised of a four-link front axle and an independent multi-link rear suspension. Standard equipment includes the AIRMATIC air suspension with continuously adjustable damping ADS+. Several centimeters can be added to the vehicle's level. Along with the ECO, COMFORT, SPORT, and INDIVIDUAL DYNAMIC SELECT settings, the 4MATIC variants have OFFROAD, an additional option for off-road driving. Additionally, rear-axle steering is standard, with an up to 4.5 degrees steering angle. It offers excellent maneuverability in cities and agility on land. Optionally, and via OTA update, a version with a steering angle of up to 10 degrees is available.
Regardless of the platform, the concepts of Integral Safety, particularly accident safety, apply. The EQS electric SUV has a robust passenger compartment, unique deformation zones, and advanced restraint systems as with other Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The EQS SUV's European version is the first Mercedes-Benz car to determine whether the back seats are genuinely occupied. The driver receives a unique warning if a rear passenger is not wearing a seat belt. Another new feature introduced by Mercedes-Benz is the occupant presence reminder.
Mercedes me Charge is one of the world's largest charging networks, with over 700,000 AC and DC charging points globally, including over 300,000 in Europe. Since 2021, when consumers in Europe use Mercedes me Charge to charge their cars, Mercedes-Benz has secured a subsequent offset with green power. Guarantees of origin of the highest quality ensure that as much green energy generated by renewable sources is put into the grid as is extracted. In addition, Mercedes me Charge's new Plug & Charge function simplifies charging the EQS electric SUV at public charging stations that enable Plug & Charge.
Navigation with Electric Intelligence determines the quickest and most convenient route, including charging breaks, depending on various parameters and dynamically adjusts to situations like traffic jams or a change in driving style. This features a visual indicator in the MBUX infotainment system indicating if the battery is sufficiently charged to return to the starting position without charging. Manually inserted charging stations along the trip are prioritized in the route calculation. As a result, several proposed charging stations may be omitted. Calculated are the projected charging expenses per charging stop.
Mercedes-Benz considers air quality in the EQS SUV holistically with ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL Plus. The system comprises filtration, sensors, a display idea, and air conditioning. The HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter has a very high filtration level, trapping tiny particles, microparticles, pollen, and other contaminants introduced by outside air.
MBUX's intelligent software completely adapts to its users and makes personalized recommendations for entertainment, comfort, and vehicle tasks. Furthermore, the zero layers ensure that the most critical applications are always given at the highest level possible inside the field of view, depending on the scenario and context.
The MBUX Hyperscreen is the interior's focal point. This large, curved screen unit spans nearly entirely between A-pillars. Three displays are merged optically behind a shared cover glass. The front passenger's 12.3-inch OLED display provides them with their display and control space. In Europe and many other nations, front-seat passengers can also view dynamic material while the car is in motion. This is because Mercedes-EQ can rely on an intelligent, camera-based blocking logic. When the camera detects the driver gazing at the passenger display, the system dims the dynamic content automatically.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV's audio experience is elevated to a new level with the Dolby Atmos sound system. For example, individual instruments or voices from the studio mix might be distributed across the listening space. As a result, a new type of sound animation becomes possible: This is because, unlike typical stereo systems, Dolby Atmos utilizes the whole environment to produce a 360-degree experience.
The new Mercedes-Benz EQS electric SUV comes in two versions: rear-wheel drive EQS 450+ with 360 hp / 568 Nm and four-wheel drive EQS 580 4MATIC with 544 hp / 858 Nm. Both have an electric motor on the rear axle, and the four-wheel-drive version has another electric motor that drives the front wheels. @via Mercedes-Benz.
