The Mercedes EQS has been around for a while. Though beloved, the 2024 Mercedes-Maybach version is a huge improvement in all the ways that matter to buyers. According to the automaker, this ultra-luxurious EV SUV is all-wheel drive and uses two permanently excited synchronous motors. Power exists in excess with the Maybach EQS as it has a maximum output of 649 and a torque of 700 lb-ft.  It accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 4.4 seconds.

Of course, any awesome new EV SUV needs an impressive range to stand out. With the 2023 Mercedes-Maybach EQS, the vehicle can go more than 370 miles on a single charge.

This is also a comfortable SUV to both drive and be a passenger in. It comes standard with the AIRMATIC air suspension with continuously adjustable damping ADS+. In addition to being comfortable, this large EV SUV has a similar turn radius of a compact SUV as it has a turning circle of 11.0 instead of 11.9. This is thanks to the rear wheels being able to turn up to 10 degrees. In addition to the regular DYNAMIC select driving modes, this one has a special Maybach mode, which replaces the usual comfort mode.
