‘You’ll never find a car to replace my S-Class’ say many owners. Well how about an S-Class sized saloon, with an amazing interior, typical Mercedes styling and enough range to get you from London to Blackpool AND BACK AGAIN?
Exactly – say hello to the Mercedes EQS, the car that is set to replace the S-Class at the top of the executive saloon market.
You see this EQS450 model has a fairly modest power output by modern EV standards – 329bhp from one motor at the rear, meaning it’s RWD and has a truly huge 108kWh battery. Combined with a super slippery aerodynamic shape and ultra efficient drivetrain this means the EQS can go 478 miles between charges, a truly staggering range and one that not one single person could complain about. Especially when it can be charged from 10% to 80% in just half an hour on the latest rapid chargers being installed around the country.
The styling is typical Mercedes EQ, with a large blanked off grille and unmistakably Merc front end, but then there’s definitely a more slippery shape with a tapering rear end.
The real change comes inside though, with the whole dashboard being available as one giant screen – it literally stretches the width of the interior and down to the centre console and looks like something from a sci-fi film.
This is the Exclusive Luxury model, so there's a huge amount of tech and luxury included, and yes we've even included the amazing £7,995 Hyperscreen Package so you get that massive dashboard screen, a fingerprint scanner (!) and the incredible new MBUX augmented reality head-up display that shows where you should turn on the windscreen in front of you. It's the future!
We can’t wait to drive this one!
