The Mercedes EQS is the latest EV by the storied luxury automaker that’s surely going to bring some much-needed competition to Tesla. The newest sub-brand under the Mercedes umbrella, Mercedes-EQ, focuses on creating pure electric vehicles. Those will, of course, come to include electrified SUVs, such as the EQB that recently debuted online. The Mercedes EQS looks totally different from any other Mercedes saloon on sale. Rather than a long flat bonnet and a rounded roofline like an S-Class, the whole car looks like one great big curve – especially from the side, and the pop-out door handles really add to this smooth look. However, that S at the end does mean that it is the brand’s equivalent of the legendary Mercedes S-Class in terms of luxury and its position within the model hierarchy. Two models will be coming to the U.S. market: the EQS 450+ and the more potent EQS 580 4MATIC.
