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!

    When you test the EQS do a Motor Trend figure 8 for time and lateral Gs. Then take it to a British race track with a loooong straightaway (or an old airport runway) and test for top speed. Then try it out for drifting ability (;o) - or not. Finally test out that trunk with rear seats laid down for "fooling around" and see if it is feasible with the trunk privacy tonneau cover on. Gives "privacy cover" a whole new meaning. .

    Great car - dramatic stupid ergonomics. It's future in every detail, but a funtional step back in the 80ies - sure with a plus in size and resolution - but still way to stupid for a car with this price. I think it's understandable that Tesla chose this route. They simply don't have many years of experience in interior design (you can tell at first touch). So it's obvious that they'd rather control everything with software than with rickety buttons. But what Mercedes, with their know-how and already below-average software ergonomics, was thinking by ignoring all progress and taking this huge step backwards is completely unclear to me. Especially now that even Audi and VW understand their mistakes and are coming back to manual controls. As I said - the EQS is a groundbreaking basic idea, but at least the alternative of this game console (I like it in the living room, but I don't drive 200 km/h + there either) would have deserved decent controls. Instead, the same rubbish as in the S-Class. My hopes of driving the next E-Class are fading.

    Oh boy I want one! Funny how Tesla took the lead, and after a decade now MBenz come up with this AWESOME car! Benz raised the bar on what more can clever electronics do for the driving experience (that is the appeal of the ESQ, over TESLA at this moment). It's a healthy competition, so Elon will come up with matching upgrades - some, at least, short of becoming a super luxury class vehicle. Fortunately for us, the electronic part is very cheap to produce! Okay, you asked, so my vote is still for Tesla: price range, less costly to repair, more me (average joe). But that two tone paint job.... You're witty, great, smart, interesting. My vote's on your side. We want to see you in the driving seat and test drive SpaceX SN16 or SN17. Fear not! SN15 safely landed back. Just take Premium car insurance and your family, cats and dogs will be fine. I texted Elon. He's fine with it. More from you please!

    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?

    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.
