The new EQS from Mercedes Benz is the first model based on the brand’s new modular architecture aimed at luxury and executive-class electric vehicles. New interior pictures reveal more of what can be expected when the car is launched later in the summer this year.
The EQS high-end luxury saloon will be part of the Mercedes’ S-Class range. The German carmaker says the electric car’s technology, design, functionality and connectivity found on the EQS will delight both drivers and passengers.
The new zero-emissions saloon car has been designed to be as efficient as possible. Mercedes has revealed that the EQS sets a new aerodynamic benchmark for production vehicles, with a Cd value of 0.20, which will help with battery range.
Mercedes is also adding driver luxury with its inner curved design, supported by artificial intelligence (AI), features energising soothing sounds, elaborate filter systems for clean air and the full instrument panel will be in widescreen.
The German carmaker will be making the EQS on a completely carbon-neutral basis in “Factory 56” at the Sindelfingen plant, Mercedes-Benz’s most modern automotive production facility. The battery systems are produced at the nearby Mercedes-Benz Untertürkheim location in the Hedelfingen plant part.
The EQS, which will be officially launched in Europe in August, will be one of six new electric cars from Mercedes.
Markus Schäfer, member of the board of management of Daimler AG and COO of Mercedes-Benz Cars, said: “At Mercedes, we are striving for nothing less than leadership in the field of electric mobility and digitisation through an intelligent platform strategy and a software-based approach. The new EQS shows: we are following our own Mercedes path by offering customers a highly efficient, electric and luxurious experience with our electric vehicles.”
