The Mercedes-Benz All Electric EQS SUV

July 26th, 2022 by

f you have been a part of the car scene for the past couple of months then you know that this is the era of the electric vehicles, or “EVs” for short. Every automotive company has been churning out electric versions of their most popular vehicles. Last year it was the 2022 EQS for Mercedes-Benz, an electric version of their flagship vehicle, the S-Class. Becoming an instant hit, Mercedes-Benz has furthered the Mercedes-EQ line with their all-new all-electric SUV: the EQS SUV 450+.

This groundbreaking SUV is the first large luxury SUV from Mercedes-EQ that seats up to seven people. This Mercedes-Benz is expected to rival both the Tesla Model X and BMW iX with an estimated range of 373 miles.

Similarly to the 2022 EQS, the EQS SUV will have two trim levels: the 450+ with rear-wheel drive and the dual-motor EQS SUV 580 4MATIC®. According to The Verge, “The 450+’s 265kW rear-axle motor will put out 265kW of energy, enabling 355 horsepower and 419 pound-feet of torque. The 580 4MATIC® configurations front and rear-axle motors put out a combined 400kWh, for 536 horsepower and 633 pound-feet of torque.”. Additionally, the EQS SUV will also feature the Hyperscreen. With MBUX, Navigation, Voice Recognition with “Hey-Mercedes!“, Apple Carplay, Android Auto and so much more. With the EQS SUV,  you will truly have the world at your fingertips.

Taking style cues from both the 2022 EQS, EQE, and EQB, the EQS SUV mimics the grille, single-tail light setup, and wheelbase size of 126 inches.

Being an SUV, this new EV obviously differentiates itself from the EQS by size. The EQS SUV will be over 7.8 inches higher than the 2022 EQS sedan. Sitting at a whopping 202 inches long, 77 inches wide, and 68 inches tall, the EQS SUV is slightly slimmer and shorter than the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class.

This electric SUV is scheduled to go into production at the Mercedes-Benz plant in the next few months, making the EQS SUV available to Mercedes-Benz drivers in Huntington, Northport, Commack, Fort Salonga, and all over the world very soon!

Whether you take the EQS SUV on the Northern State Parkway, LIE, or even just Jericho Turnpike, this SUV is made to be eye-catching, advanced, sustainable, and convenient.
