7

Mercedes-Benz has opened the order books for its all-electric EQS, with prices starting from £99,995.

The 333hp flagship premium EV has a range of up to 453 miles (WLTP) powered by its 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery.

It is also the first Mercedes model to use the brand’s new modular platform architecture designed specifically for large luxury and executive-class EVs.

The new model also showcases the new MBUX Hyperscreen with multiple displays that merge under one piece of glass to create a curved screen over 141 centimetres wide.

The MBUX Hyperscreen is available on AMG Line Premium EQS models and above; priced at an additional £7,995.

The 107.8 kWh battery features a 200 kW DC on-board charger, allowing it to charge from 10 to 80% in 31 minutes. This is enough to deliver an extra 186 miles of range in 15 minutes.

EQS 450+ AMG Line models come as standard with 20-inch alloy wheels; AMG Line body styling elements in high-gloss black and chrome; 4.5-degree rear-axle steering; panoramic sunroof; full leather upholstery; heated seats front and rear; a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel in Nappa leather; 12.3-inch driver display; MBUX multimedia system with 12.8-inch OLED central display; Driving Assistance Package and MBUX augmented navigation.

AMG Line Premium adds 21-inch AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels; Digital Light with Light Band; interior active ambient lighting; acoustic privacy glass; a 360-degree camera; Driving Assistance Plus; and a Burmester® surround-sound system. AMG Line Premium models are available for an extra £7,000 over AMG Line trim.

Costing £7,000 more than AMG Line Premium, AMG Line Premium Plus brings a head-up display; remote parking functionality; and the gesture-controlled MBUX interior assistant.

EQS 450+ Luxury models feature equipment levels equal to the AMG Line Premium trim, but replace the sporty focus with a more classic style.

This includes all new Microcloud Artico upholstery combined with ship-deck wood; comfort seats with comfort headrests and a heated steering wheel; and 22-inch alloy wheels. EQS 450+ Luxury trim is aligned pricing-wise with AMG Line Premium trim, costing £7,000 more than AMG Line cars.

Exclusive Luxury trim adds multi-contour massage seats with climate control; an air balance package; and Nappa leather upholstery. Exclusive Luxury costs an extra £7,000 over Luxury-spec vehicles.

The optional Rear Luxury Lounge package is also available on the Exclusive Luxury model line.

Costing £3,995, it includes electrically adjustable rear seats with massage functions; comfort rear armrest with wireless smartphone charging and Android tablet; climate control for rear seats; Mercedes interior assistant; additional USB ports and adaptive interior lighting. 

All EQS models come with a three-year subscription to Mercedes me Charge, providing access to vehicle charging from public charging providers, with a single account.

This also includes a one-year subscription to IONITY with free rapid charging.

Automotive Management Live 2021 - Shaping the future of motor retail

The sector’s premier insight and networking event returns to the NEC, in Birmingham, on November 11.

Book your place early to ensure they are ready to embrace a packed schedule of seminars and interactive stands.

Devonshire Motors owner Nathan Tomlinson said of the event: "Being able to get back to networking and learning in person is something that I'm really looking forward to,” he said, adding: “One thing that really caught my eye was the message about ‘learning new skills to balance your workload’.

“Personally, I think that's going to be a really big deal as we continually put more and more pressure on our teams to handle workflow, often digital, that we just don't have the structure, tools or skills to manage well.”
