Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

Deputy Editor: Sasha Lekach

Mercedes-Benz’s “EQ” lineup of electric vehicles continues to grow. The German automaker has taken its luxury EQS sedan and enlarged it as the EQS SUV, built on the same EVA2 platform. It retains the opulence and luxury of the electric sedan and adds even more room and an optional third row. 

It doesn’t have an AMG version like the sedan, but the three variations (and three trims) are fairly powerful for an 6,000-pound SUV and offer up to 305 miles of range. The 450+ is a single motor rear-wheel drive, 450 4Matic a two-motor AWD and 580 is top-of-the-line dual motor with 536 horsepower.

Like the EQS sedan the SUV is a quiet, serene cabin with space for kids and the 56-inch Hyperscreen (standard in the 580) is the biggest touchscreen available in any vehicle.
