Ultra-luxury is about to go electric with the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV, which was previewed by a concept car at the 2021 Munich auto show. The EQS SUV’s electric powertrain will come standard with all-wheel drive, is said to offer around 370 miles of driving range per charge, and is sure to deliver massive power and acceleration. The concept model was shown with gorgeous 24-inch wheels, flashy exterior styling elements, and a most deluxe cabin featuring faux-fur carpeting, a flower vase, and rose-gold trim. Mercedes tells us that the concept vehicle is a one-off but also representative of what we can expect from the production model. The EQS SUV shares its platform with the electric Benz-branded EQS and EQE sedans.
What’s New for 2023?
The EQS SUV will be a new model for the Mercedes-Maybach brand and, while it will launch after a toned-down Mercedes-Benz sister model, we expect to see it reach production for the 2023 model year.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
With a starting price deep into six-figure territory, we expect the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV to offer just about every luxury as standard, although a few options and customization features will likely be offered for an additional fee.
