It will debut later this year.
Every Mercedes-Benz conventional car has an SUV counterpart, and every electric vehicle from the company will eventually have a zero-emissions SUV counterpart. The EQS is the Stuttgart-based company’s most technologically advanced EV, and it will soon be transformed into a high-riding EQS SUV. We’ve seen it in action on several times, and a new video shows a prototype in action in a South California parking lot

Mercedes appears to be testing the EQS SUV in multiple regions at the same time, since another test vehicle was spotted near the Arctic Circle in December. We don’t get a glimpse under the camouflage in this fresh sighting of the aircraft, but we do get a quick look inside the cabin. However, everything in the cabin is still heavily camouflaged for the time being.
The Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV concept, unveiled in September of last year, hinted to the final design of the EQS SUV, albeit in a more polished showcar form. The actual model will undoubtedly be inspired by the research, as evidenced by the sleek headlights and wide front fascia. However, we doubt that the production electric SUV would feature the same ornate grille-like panel.
The EQS will join the EQA, EQB, and EQC, which are all based on modified combustion car platforms. From 2022, the top-of-the-line EV SUV, as well as the smaller EQE SUV, will be built in the United States at the Tuscaloosa plant. Maybach will get its own version with a posher cabin, heavily influenced by the Maybach EQS SUV concept from last year.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any information on the powertrain. For the time being, all we can do is guess, but we’ll stick to the facts instead. The only known information thus far is that Mercedes anticipates a range of up to 373 miles (600 kilometres) between charges, depending on the configuration.
