Mercedes announced the all new EQS SUV earlier this year in April and it is soon about to go on sale in the UK. In a few months time in November, Mercedes will put the premium SUV on sale, priced from £130,000. The EQS brand name applies to the ultra-luxury versions of the company’s electric vehicles, with a saloon EQS already on sale.
The EQS SUV will be available as a seven seater only in the UK, but some markets will be able to purchase it as a five seater. Here in the UK, Mercedes will offer just two models, the EQS 450+ and the EQS 580+ 4MATIC. The 450+ is rear wheel drive and given the name, the 580+ is four wheel drive. Later on, Mercedes will add to other 4MATIC models to the line up.
All models feature the same battery pack, a 107.8kWh system with a range of 410 miles on the entry level 450+ model. The motor on this model has 355bhp and a huge 568Nm. The EQS saloon is also available with a smaller 90kWh pack, but Mercedes won’t be offering the SUV with this, presumably due to weight and outweighing the tradeoff with range.
The top of the range 580+ 4MATIC has 536bhp and 858Nm and is capable of doing 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds. Range here is 381 miles.
All EQS SUV models can rapid charge at 200kW and can therefore go from 10-80% in 31 minutes.
The all new EQS SUV will go on sale here in the UK later this year in November, priced from £130,000.
