It’s a surprisingly good result, especially compared to the S-Class.
Mercedes-Benz reports a significant drop in automobile sales in the first quarter of 2022 in the United States. Although sales of vans grew 17.4 percent to 13,688, the brand sold 62,251 automobiles, a decrease of 20.5 percent.
The all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQS is performing exceptionally well, with 2,091 units sold in the first quarter of 2022. (after 443 in Q4 2021).
When compared to the 4,817 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, that’s not terrible (up 362 percent year-over-year). Who knows, maybe the all-electric flagship will one day rival and perhaps surpass its conventional equivalent.
Mercedes-Benz has sold over 2,500 EQS in the United States.
The arrival of the EQS AMG and EQS SUV, as well as the EQE and EQB, will be the next chapter for the German brand.

President and CEO of MBUSA, Dimitris Psillakis, stated:
“Our electric offensive is off to a very positive start with strong results and high demand for the EQS in the first quarter, and our dealer partners did a fantastic job to deliver for our customers amidst some shortages of our most popular model lines. We are poised to accelerate our electric strategy with the high performance EQS AMG sedan and the world premiere of the all new EQS SUV later this month.
Other European premium/luxury brands also are expanding their lineup with all-new all-electric models, including Audi, BMW and Porsche.
