Eye-Catching Design

The EQS model is a “one bow” design. Three inches shorter than the glass-powered S Class, the EQS model has more width and is taller.

The EQS model indeed looks like it came straight out of a sci-fi movie because of its A-Pillar, which leans forward, giving the model a Cab Over Engine Design, allowing for a more compact configuration.

Among other cool features, the model has a Black Panel radiator Grille and a 3D Helix Design at the back. It would be justified if the interior was termed as nothing less than beautiful and exotic.

It’s a full package with leather seats with massage functions, adjustable back seats, neck and shoulder heating.

The model comes in two exclusive Trim Designs, and the standard one is EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4MATIC®.

Both are electric and have a transmission of Single Speed (automatic). The EQS 450 is a Rear-Wheel drive, while the EQS 580 4MATIC® is an all-wheel drive.


The EQS 450, a single rear electric motor, generates a horsepower of 329 and a torque capacity of 406 Lb-Ft. Acceleration of this model rises to 60mph in a good 5.9 seconds.

If you are looking for something faster, the EQS 580 may be the one for you, reaching an acceleration of 60mph in almost 4 seconds.

This model produces a horsepower of 516 and a 631 Lb-Ft torque.

The Standard Rear Axle Steering System allows the rear wheels to angle up to 4.5 degrees with an optional upgrade of 10 degrees.

The model, due to its design, can be easily fitted into tight spots without a scratch, overall offering a silky and smooth ride.
