Mercedes has unveiled its new EQS SUV – the brand’s new electric SUV flagship that offers a range of up to 310 miles. 

Essentially the SUV version of the regular EQS saloon, it joins models such as the EQA and EQC in the firm’s line-up of electric cars. Using a bespoke electric car platform, the EQS SUV offers a large 3.21m wheelbase, and can seat up to seven people thanks to its generous interior dimension. 

Regular five-seat versions are available too, with Mercedes saying that four golf bags can fit in the boot with this model.


A range of versions are set to be offered, with the rear-wheel-drive EQS 450+ kicking off the line-up and using an electric motor producing 355bhp and 568Nm of torque. A 4Matic four-wheel-drive version of this is also available. Retaining the same power figure, but torque increases to 800Nm.

At the top of the line-up is the EQS 580+ 4Matic, which develops 536bhp and 868Nm of torque, with this being able to hit 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds. All EQS SUVs use a 107.8kWh battery, which offer an electric range of up to 410 miles – some way off the claimed 479 miles possible with the sleeker EQS saloon. 

Each EQS can also be rapid charged at up to 200kW, meaning 155 miles of range could be added in just 15 minutes. 

Standard equipment on the EQS SUV is very generous, including four-wheel-steering to aid maneuverability, as well as adaptive air suspension. Mercedes’ advanced ‘Hyperscreen’ is also available as an option, featuring three large screens merged into one huge display that covers much of the interior. 

The EQS SUV’s design mirrors that of other electric ‘EQ’ Mercedes models, including a closed off grille with intricate pattern, along with a full-width LED light bar at the rear. 

The EQS SUV is set to go on sale later this year, with prices likely to start from upwards of £100,000.
