Electric Luxury Shapes the all-new 2022 EQS from Mercedes-EQ

September 29th, 2021 by



Travel comes in shapes and sizes that the human mind could not conceive before 1886 when Carl Benz created the first vehicle powered by a gas engine. Throughout time, Mercedes-Benz has changed the world with its leading-edge ideas and has paved the way for mobility as we know it today. Pushing boundaries time and time again, we now see elegance and sustainability converge to create Mercedes-Benz’s first electric luxury sedan, the 2022 EQS.

Leave it to Mercedes-Benz to set the bar high for maximum luxury in an electric vehicle, creating a battery-powered S-Class in the truest sense with a starting price of $102,310, a few thousand dollars less than the starting S 500. Expectations are exceeded in this carefully designed vehicle, labeled as one of the world’s most aerodynamic automobile. LED light bands decorate the front grille, and doors that open and close automatically resemble what the perfect car of the future should embody.

Minimalism for electric cars is out of the picture. Modern luxury is drawn in the EQS by a 56″ curved glass hyper screen that seamlessly stretches from door to door to merge three screens where voice commands, charging, entertainment, phone, navigation, connectivity, massage, and more are available. In addition, a sophisticated lithium-ion battery can quickly boost in just 15 minutes.

Mercedes-Benz publicized its efforts to go all-electric by 2030 in markets where the conditions allow. In addition, substantial investments will also go to charging services and home energy storage units to ensure that the best vehicles in the world are also the best ones for the world.

The 2022 EQS from Mercedes-EQ will turn electric driving into the utmost sophisticated version of the best good-for-you-and-the-world vehicle money can buy.
