The SUV version of the electric flagship from Mercedes-Benz arrives tomorrow. This Tuesday release is when we will learn more about this new model. Mercedes-Benz enters the electric SUV market with the first model built on an all-electric platform. While we wait one more day for this new luxury SUV to arrive, we have a few bits of information about the new Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV.
1. We’ll see an incredible design with the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV
Although we’ve only seen spy shots and camouflaged models on test runs so far, we can see the elegant style this luxury SUV brings to the market. Instead of simply being a display of strength, this vehicle gives us the elegance and style we admire. This is the SUV version of the EQS flagship sedan, which puts pressure on the EQS SUV.
2. A look in the cabin of this luxury SUV shows the expected style
Would you expect anything less than top-notch styling and qualities in the cabin of this Mercedes-Benz SUV? Of course not. Tech Crunch covered the interior style ahead of the debut, which shows an incredible optional 56-inch MBUX Hyperscreen in the dashboard.
The cabin area features wood and leather to give passengers incredible comfort and quality during the drive. There are seven different colors for the cabin, giving new owners the desired style.
We also see an optional third-row seat, an electrically adjustable second row, and a pair of screens in the front-seat headrests to provide entertainment to the rear seat passengers.
3. What will be the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV range?
This new luxury SUV has the same powertrain as the EQS sedan giving owners a 107.8 kWh battery pack. This battery pack and the electric motors return nearly 400 miles of range according to Top Speed. A 90 kWh battery pack could also give drivers a lower power level for this SUV. The output could be between 329 and 751 horsepower, and you can add 186 miles of range in 15 minutes using a 200-kW fast charger.
The EQS SUV is the luxury SUV leading the way into an electric future
The new Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV isn’t the first electric SUV from this brand. The new EQB arrived earlier, but there’s one distinct difference between these two crossovers. The EQB rides on the same platform as the GLB-Class gasoline-powered SUVs. The EQS SUV rides on the dedicated Modular Electric Architecture (MEA) platform. This new electric SUV is being assembled alongside the EQS sedan at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Alabama.
After the wait, we finally have the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV
Although the name is a bit confusing, and we have to qualify if we are talking about the sedan or the SUV, this new model is the electric SUV we’ve been waiting to see. Car and Driver took a test model out for some fun on a course that looks like a desert but isn’t. This gave us an idea of the off-road capabilities of this impressive SUV.
The new EQS SUV could start at $114,000, putting it in the expected price range. After tomorrow, we’ll have more of the details and see the style of this impressive model without any camouflage covering the vehicle. Could this be the electric luxury SUV you want to drive?
