The EQS SUV is the first all-electric luxury SUV from Mercedes-EQ

The EQS SUV is the first all-electric luxury SUV from Mercedes-EQ. At market launch, the model range comprises three variants: EQS 450+ and EQS 450 4MATIC, each with 265 kW output, and the EQS 580 4MATIC with 400 kW. The prices start at 110,658.10 euros for the EQS 450+. EQS 450 4MATIC and EQS 580 4MATIC cost 114,446.10 and 135,291.10 euros respectively. The models can be ordered now and will reach the first customers in Europe in December. The model series is produced in a CO2-neutral manner at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa (USA).

The SUV offers plenty of space, comfort and connectivity in its avant-garde, luxurious interior. The second row of seats can be electrically adjusted as standard. A third row of seats with two additional individual seats is available as an option (1,904 euros). The seats in the EQS SUV fold up from the load floor mechanically. With the seats folded, the floor is level. In combination with the third row of seats, an EASY ENTRY function is standard in the second row of seats.

There are not only three drive variants to choose from, but also three model types.

Mercedes-Benz has bundled other important equipment into packages. These are called Advanced, Advanced Plus, Premium, Premium Plus and Business Class and build on each other. Their availability depends on the model type. In addition, a number of optional extras are also available individually.

Mercedes me Charge: customised tariffs

Since June 2022, Mercedes me Charge has been offering three new charging tariffs in Europe that are tailored to individual driving performance. Anyone who purchases an EQS SUV and has registered with Mercedes me Charge will initially be placed on the Mercedes me Charge L tariff. This tariff is designed for customers travelling long distances. In the first year, these new car buyers do not have to pay any basic fee, from the second year onwards it is 17.90 euros per month.

The favourable kilowatt-hour prices are particularly interesting for frequent chargers. AC charging costs 0.33 €/kWh, plus 0.06 € per minute from the 180th minute. These six cents additional costs are a so-called “blocking fee”, which, however, does not apply in Germany when charging between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m. This means that owners of an electric vehicle without their own wallbox can charge overnight at public charging points at no additional cost.

Mercedes-Benz Bank offers attractive financing and leasing conditions to private and business customers

Attractive conditions also apply within the new tariff system for DC charging (0.39 €/kWh, plus 0.20 € per minute from the 60th minute) and superfast charging in the IONITY network (0.35 €/kWh).

With IONITY Unlimited, drivers of an EQS SUV draw electricity free of charge for one year at IONITY charging stations. This applies from activation via Mercedes me Charge.

Mercedes-Benz Bank offers attractive financing and leasing conditions to private and business customers in Germany. Motor insurance including tailored protection for electric vehicles can be purchased online. Special services such as all-risk coverage for the battery are integrated, and the charging cable is also insured. The InScore telematics insurance is an interesting option, as the premium can be reduced by up to 30 percent by the individual’s driving behaviour. Mercedes-Benz Mobility offers financial services to customers in Europe through their local entities.
