The Mercedes-Benz EQ lineup now includes a third model, the EQS SUV, which is a taller version of the EQS sedan. The EQS SUV, which was unveiled in April, was expected to be more expensive than its three-box counterpart. With the release of its pricing, the German marque begs to differ.
Mercedes priced the EQS SUV on par with the sedan, with a starting price of $104,400. The EQS sedan will start at $104,000 for the EQS 450+, as revealed with the rest of Mercedes’ 2023 pricing for the US market a few days ago.
Similarly, the Mercedes EQS SUV will be available in three variants: the 450+, the 450 4MATIC, and the 580 4MATIC. The EQS 450 4MATIC SUV was not announced at the model’s unveiling a few months ago, but it will be available in showrooms for $107,400. The 580 4MATIC will cost $125,950.
These are the admission prices for the entry Premium trim level. If you choose the Exclusive trim, you’ll have to pay an extra $4,000 on top of the base price. The top-spec Pinnacle adds $2,000, with the most expensive EQS 580 4MATIC SUV (before options) costing $132,200.
The three-row EQS SUV will be the first Mercedes EQ produced in the United States. It is now being manufactured at the Tuscaloosa plant in Alabama, from which the model will be exported to other markets. The upcoming EQE SUV, which will be revealed in full in October, will also be built in the same plant.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV will be available for purchase and will hit showrooms in the fall of this year.
