The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS Shows Off Its Good Side

March 9th, 2021 by


The luxury automaker, Mercedes-Benz has a knack for playing coy when it comes to their new products. There have been many times where we’ve seen spy shots of their 2022 EQS electric sedan, however, at long last, it appears that the company is ready to give us a peek of what’s to come. Recently a smaller teaser image showed off the profile of electrified S-Class, which is set to go on sale later this year and ultimately be thrown in the headlines as Tesla’s fierce competitor in publications. While that is certainly true, the large car will be a part of the company’s first EV offerings and will focus on only a fraction of what Tesla has already used a decade of tackling.

Another way that the Tesla Model S is a contrast to Mercedes-Benz’s upcoming EV is its body. Based on the profile of the EQS (shown in the cover title of this article) we see how the nose of the car has more of a slope rather than the Model S’s boxier face. Even more so, the nose seems relatively short, as well as the trunk. The miniature front and rear overhangs may also aid in accenting the vast space between axles, which is where the battery is located.

The tree-hugging EQS also reveals some characteristics that aren’t often seen in Mercedes-Benz style choices, such as small body-mounted quarter windows; On the gasoline-powered S-Class, all of the side glass are part of its doors.

The precise details concerning just how weighty the EQS will be as opposed to the gasoline-powered S-Class are still up in the air. There are assumptions that the EQS will leave a reduced carbon footprint than its predecessor, however, it will still expand with its cabin space (more particularly with the short-wheelbase model) due to the fact that it doesn’t require much hood length. 

A Mercedes-Benz model that has already gotten more than its fair share of previews is the EQC, an SUV that the company has decided not to bring over to our side of the waters. Based on this, we should expect to see the headlights rock a wing-shaped look while connected to a black grille (if you want to call it that) that all EQ models are displaying at the moment. A photo from the production line also confirms this assumption.

As far as range and price are concerned, two more specs that the EQS will be measured to the Model. The electric S model will reportedly offer a 435 mile range in the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure) cycle, and will also have a starting price that goes around $100,000, (plus destination fee). While this price point is above the Model S, Tesla has allowed their price to waver in these recent months. 

We should see the full unveiling of the EQS in a matter of weeks, with sales finally starting in late spring
