Mercedes-Benz EQS: luxury business motoring, EV style

General Guides  New Launches 

Mercedes-Benz has kicked-off a new era of luxury motoring with the arrival of its EQS. The firm's new all-electric flagship, the EQS looks to replicate the same prestige, driving abilities, and tech-leadership as the S-Class, but all with zero-tailpipe emissions.

What's more, for company directors and senior executives, there's all this top-class luxury at 1% company car tax rising to just 2% for the 2022-23 tax. And if range anxiety is your problem, then don't let that worry you with the Mercedes-Benz EQS: it has a driving range of 453 miles on a charge, thanks to a huge 108 kWh battery.

This can be recharged at up to 200 kW DC, which will replenish 186 miles in just a quarter of an hour, or get from 10% to 80% in half an hour. All EQS models come with a three-year subscription to Mercedes me Charge , and a year's free-subscription on the ultra-rapid, pan-European Ionity charging network.

One key feature for the new EQS is the MBUK Hyperscreen, which puts multiple displays behind one curved piece of glass, stretching across the dashboard. Other elements available include gesture control, heads-up display, Burmester surround-sound audio system, driver assistance package, and remote parking functionality.

Power for the Mercedes Benz EQS 450+ comes from a 245 kW (333hp) electric motor, and the EQS offers all-wheel steering for improved agility. A 0-62mph time of 6.2 seconds is possible in this version, though for those requiring more pace, an EQS 53 4MATIC+ with more power will arrive in the UK in due course.

Until then, there is one powertrain, available in five different specifications - AMG Line, AMG Line Premium, AMG Line Premium Plus, Luxury, and Exclusive Luxury.

Of course, the EQS line-up is not cheap, starting at £99,995, but you can lease it from us instead for a more equitable monthly amount. First deliveries are expected in the UK before the turn of the year.
