Mercedes-Benz EQS

The Mercedes-Benz EQS (V297) is a battery electric full-size luxury liftback car produced by German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz Group. It was released in September 2021 in Germany and the fourth quarter of the year in the United States. As a battery-electric vehicle, it is part of the Mercedes-Benz EQ family.


The EQS was presented at the 2019 International Motor Show Germany (IAA) as the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS and foreshadows the future Mercedes-Benz series luxury electric sedan cars announced for 2021. The production model debuted on 15 April 2021. The EQS 450+ variant with 245 kW costs €106,374, while the all-wheel-drive model EQS 580 4MATIC is listed at €135,529. The EQS went on sale in the UK by September 2021, with prices starting from £99,995 for the EQS 450+ AMG Line. In December 2021, Mercedes-Benz unveiled and priced the EQS in China. Scheduled for April 2022, four versions of the EQS would be available in China starting at ¥1.08 million, which is just under €150,000 or $170,000.

Technical details

The EQS is the first EQ model that is based on the technical platform specific to the electric models, called the MEA. Its automobile drag coefficient is as low as 0.20, making it the most aerodynamic car in production at the time of its introduction.

The car is powered by a water-cooled permanent magnet synchronous motor from Valeo Siemens in the EQS 450+ model, and by two of these motors in the EQS 580 4MATIC model. The torque is sent from the motor(s) to the wheels through a single-speed reduction gearbox. In the single-motor EQS 450+ model, the motor has a rated power of 245 kW (329 hp), and a braking power of 186 kW (249 hp), allowing a deceleration of 5 m·s−2. German motor journalist Alexander Bloch from Auto Motor und Sport found the energy consumption to be 150...160 W·h/km at 130 km/h (81 mph), and the average energy consumption to be 158 W·h/km. With the 107.8 kW·h secondary cell, the car has a range of more than 638 km. The average recharging power is 163 kW with a peak of >200 kW, allowing the car to reach a 79% state of charge in about half an hour.

The Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ was presented at the Munich Motor Show in September 2021 and is the first all-electric AMG car. It has two electric motors producing 560 kW (751 hp) of power and delivering 1,020 N⋅m (752 lbf⋅ft) of torque. Its handling characteristics as well as its cooling system have been upgraded to match the motors' higher power output.


A luxury car, the EQS comes with rear-wheel steering, over-the-air updates, wireless phone charging, 360-degree camera system, keyless entry, and can optionally be equipped with seats with massage, head-up display with augmented reality, automatically opening and closing doors, integrated toll payment system, gesture controls, HEPA air filter, heat, noise, and infrared rays insulated glass and heated windshield.

MBUX Hyperscreen

The high-end versions of Mercedes-Benz EQS feature two separate OLED screens and an LCD instrument cluster that covers nearly the full extension of the dashboard. The whole infotainment system is powered by eight CPU cores and 24 gigabytes of RAM. The multi-purpose digital dashboard has been well received by consumers.

Safety and automated features

The car has several safety and automated features, including adaptive cruise control, lane centering, automatic lane changing, automated emergency braking, avoidance assist (for pedestrians and bicycles), blind spot monitoring including rear seat exit warning, cross-traffic alert, traffic-sign recognition, automatic parking assist, and adaptive headlights.

The car can optionally be fit with a level 3 autonomous driving feature named Drive Pilot allowing the driver to take his hands off the wheel and his eyes off the road in heavy traffic up to a 60 km/h (37 mph) speed on 13,191 kilometres (8,197 mi) of German motorways. The system is a world first and works by using lidar cameras, microphones, and various sensors. It is planned to also become available to other countries. The car is the first that can be fit a level 4 automated valet parking system named Intelligent Park Pilot.


The specifications include:

Reviews and reception

In December 2022, Bloomberg News listed the EQS as a "terrific" (great) alternative option to the Tesla Model S for auto owners angered by Elon Musk.
