Mercedes EQS first drive: luxury S-Class in EV



Mercedes has a lot to prove with its first proper EV coming to the United States. EQS will be available at dealerships this fall at the still-announced price, and when that happens, it will accept offers from Tesla and Porsche. How will it go against these EVs? We had the opportunity to drive the 2021 EQS for two days and realize how it fits not only with the competitors but also with the S-Class itself.

On our drive we have times behind 450+ with rear-wheel drive, 580 4Matic with all-wheel drive and Edition One version with two-tone color and 580 4Matic power. All vehicles have a battery capacity of 107.8 kWh and on the WLTP range test, the vehicle was rated at 485 miles. Of course, stricter EPA testing needs to be done and that number should fall. For now, we have the instinct and impressions as we wait for range and price estimates. Watch our first video above for the full story.
