This is the all-new Mercedes EQS!
It’s Mercedes’ answer to the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan, and we think it might be one of the best-looking EVs we’ll see all year!
For starters, it more than looks the part… But then again, would you expect anything else from what's effectively an all-electric S-Class? What’s more, the performance stats are more than good enough. Powered by dual-electric motors, the EQS can deliver 523hp & 835Nm of torque! Not only that, but with an 108kWh battery pack hidden under the surface, it can also apparently provide you with 478 miles of range.
Ok so it may be a bit down compared to the Model S Plaid+, but let's face it, most electric cars will be! However, we think there’s one area where the EQS has the Tesla beat… The interior! Not only will you find high-quality materials throughout the cabin, up-front the dashboard is dominated by the Mercedes Hyperscreen, with a HUGE 18-inch touchscreen down the middle which is flanked by two 12-inch displays!
Surely the Hyperscreen is enough to convert you to an EV fanboy, right?! There's only one way to find out... Join Mat for this all-new review!

Car companies please stop making concept cars. It’s not a good strategy to over promise and under deliver. This is a mucking fugly car compared to the concept. I’m so let down and hurt inside that I now will do everything in my power to NOT buy a Mercedes for my next car.

How can a car look so good from behind and side view, but so shite from the front? It looks like a conservative version of a Honda Civic. Bad show EQ.

I think you need to pass this on to someone who doesn’t have any dislike of electric cars. Just slip back into your nice comfortable ice and let the tech boys take over, there’s a nice Grandpa.

wow dude that was one terrible video only because of boaring & not funny jokes
Ghostwriters in the Sky
best thing of it is the screen, the ice version of the s-class has a screen that looks like a tablet computer that was simply slapped on the dashboard, to unharmonic to the eye and not what a s-class would supposed to be. the screen of the eqs is integrated into the instrument board, looks so much better, more harmonic, the curves between the doors and the dashboard looks fine too. the driver has to turn his back to reach the seatbelt, there mercedes from like 30 years ago had an electric motor that pushed the seatbelts a bit forth for the driver to easily grab the seatbelt, without having to turn over. i think an s-class shouldnt get less luxurious with time, that belt feature should be added back to the package. how does the eqs compare to the Tesla Model S Plaid + ? so far I've seen, i like the Model S Plaid + better.

Stickshifts and safetybelts, Bucket seats have all got to go. When we're driving in the car, It makes my baby seem so far. I need you here with me, Not way over in a bucket seat. I need you to be here with me, Not way over in a bucket seat. But when we're driving in my Malibu, It's easy to get right next to you. I say, "Baby, scoot over, please." And then she's right there next to me. I need you here with me, Not way over in a bucket seat. I need you to be here with me, Not way over in a bucket seat. Well a lot of good cars are Japanese. But when we're driving far, I need my baby, I need my baby next to me. Well, stickshifts and safetybelts, Bucket seats have all got to go. When we're driving in the car, It makes my baby seem so far. I need you here with me, Not way over in a bucket seat. I need you to be here with me, Not way over in a bucket seat.

I'm genuinely impressed with the interiors and the drag coefficient, absolutely love those wood trims mixed with technological features like the screens and leds. However the exteriors leave me kind of "meh", I wish they retained that luxury throwback design they've been using on the S-classes of the last decade, with the iconic hood adornment and chrome grill. I just hate that every car manufacturer making an EV has to exaggerate with the futuristic look, can't we just have a model S with Mercedes interiors?

Do a comparison with the S class maybe? I think this is now officially in that price range and lets be honest, if you are buying one of these, you are doing it for the comfort. Might as well then go all the way to and have the S badge of pride.

So.... after almost a decade of delay, they finally catch up, now they see they can make a buck with electric cars. Shame on all "big" manufactures, who don't have the balls Tesla has. Big in size, small at heart. Still happy with this development though. The less VW diesels in city environment the better. But for sure there will be another scam with these ill "wir werden die groesste sein!" companies.

I used to have a car like this at uni in the late 80s. Yes. My Opel Manta GT Hatch back also had frameless windows. It did. And it was electric. You needed to hot wire it to start. And a Rick James cassette was stuck in the player for 2 years, which boost the overall electricity. A real Super Freak. All true.

I really don't think the EQS is meant to compete with the Model S. It's on another level of luxury and targets a different clientele. It's competitor is more likely the Lucid Air

MAT, I LIKE YOUR REVIEWS BUT WHY DOES THE TITLE OF YOUR ARTICLE REFER TO WHETHER OR NOT THE EQS IS A FAST AS THE TESLA? I'M BOTH A MERCEDES AND TESLA FAN BUT DO YOU THINK THAT 1 IN A 100 PEOPLE SHOPPING FOR A LUXARY CAR CARE IF THE CAR THEY BUY CAN ACCELERATE QUICKLY ENOUGH TO SEND THEM TO THE CHIROPRACTOR FOR A NECK RE-ALIGNMENT? IT IS ALMOST AS IRRELEANT AS WHAT THE EXHAUST SOUND IS LIKE IN AN EXPENSIVE INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE CAR.
