Mercedes-Benz EQS (2025)

Since their launch, Mercedes‑Benz has continuously developed the EQS and its siblings. Independent of model updates and faster than ever before, innovations have been incorporated into the series for the EQS, EQE, EQS SUV and EQE SUV. The company has responded to market and customer feedback more quickly than ever before with numerous product upgrades. For the current change year 2024, the EQS is now receiving an extremely extensive update package. The electric flagship comes with up to 82 kilometres more range, a new radiator cover with chrome applications and an upright Mercedes star on the front hood as well as even more comfort in the rear.

The EQS was already one of the electric cars with the longest range. In the future, customers will be able to cover even more distance without stopping to charge. Thanks to an increased battery capacity from 108.4 to 118 kWh, the maximum range of the the EQS 450+ (combined energy consumption: 19.9 – 16.3 kWh/100 km | combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km | CO2 class: A) exceeds the 800-kilometre mark (UK-specific figures TBC).

Another technical measure: Due to the high proportion of recuperation in daily operation, the brake discs are used less often than in combustion models. In the future, a special function will maintain the brake system by automatically applying the pads to the discs from time to time.

EQ look combined with the iconic Mercedes star: the new radiator cover
The distinguishing feature of the Mercedes‑EQ vehicles is the deep black radiator grille (black panel), which connects seamlessly with the headlights. The designers have now refined this independent face for the EQS: The electric flagship is equipped with a new radiator cover with chrome applications as standard in the Business Class Line. Chrome-plated and flush-mounted slats create an elegant contrast to the deep black surroundings. This grill is combined with a standing star on the front hood and combines EQ looks with the iconic, status-conscious Mercedes‑Benz symbol.

The sense of high-quality details is also reflected in the interior: the ventilation nozzles on the B-pillars now have a frame made of galvanised chrome. The additional cushion in the rear is enhanced by piping made of Nappa leather.

Continuous improvements in rear comfort
EQS that are equipped with the optional Extended Rear Luxury Lounge Pack now have a special slanted footrest on the right side in the rear compartment. Placed between the rails of the front seat, it noticeably increases comfort for the rear passenger because he or she can place his or her feet at an angle.

This latest detail is another, but by no means the only, convenience of the Extended Rear Luxury Lounge Pack: the passenger seat can be folded forward and the backrest in the rear can be adjusted up to 38 degrees. This ensures more space. The optional equipment also includes seat heating Plus and neck and shoulder heating in the rear, as well as pneumatic adjustment of the seat depth. An illuminated trim piece is integrated into the back of the front seats.

The fact that Mercedes‑Benz has increased the rear comfort of the EQS in several steps also applies to the rear seat package that has been standard for some time. The angle of the backrest can be adjusted from 27 to 36 degrees at the touch of a button. The layered look of the seat covers emphasises the individual seat character. Five millimetres more foam in the backrest and the cover that is detached from the side bolsters ensure a softer seating experience.

Did you know, that …

… the MBUX Hyperscreen is now standard on the EQS? There, three displays merge almost seamlessly into one another, creating a screen strip that is over 141 centimetres wide.

… the now standard heat pump increases climate comfort and efficiency? The waste heat from the electric drive (inverter and electric motor) and the high-voltage battery can be used to heat the interior. This enormously reduces the need for battery power for the heater and increases the range.

… the so-called Disconnect Unit (DCU) in the 4MATIC models automatically decouples the electric motor on the front axle depending on the driving situation and the required performance? At low loads, the DCU switches to 4×2 driving mode. Then the electric motor and the transmission on the front axle come to a standstill. This increases the range. (Note: in the UK 4MATIC is only available on AMG EQS 53)

… the recuperation level of the EQS has been increased? The greater deceleration (up to 3 m/s2) means more energy recovered and therefore a longer range. Mercedes‑Benz has now also optimised the braking system: It offers a better pedal feel thanks to a modified brake force cylinder.

… many updates to the EQS were made using over-the-air technology (OTA)? These include, for example, DolbyÒ Atmos, the YouTube web app and a digital travel guide.

… the maintenance service in Germany is now basically standard equipment on all EVA 2 models (EQS, EQE, EQS SUV, EQE SUV)? This includes all required maintenance up to six years or 90,000 km (whichever comes first). Mercedes‑Benz will implement this in all other European markets in the second quarter of 2024.

… the EQS can be easily started and locked with the KEYLESS-GO comfort package with preparation for the Digital Vehicle Key (standard equipment) if the driver has a compatible device? Key sharing is also possible: family members or acquaintances can be digitally invited to use the vehicle.

… the drivers of an EQS and EQS SUV can get free electricity from the IONITY charging stations for a year? This applies from activation of IONITY Unlimited via Mercedes me Charge. In total, Mercedes me Charge brings together more than 1.5 million charging points from over 1,300 charging providers worldwide, making it currently one of the largest public charging networks in the world.

… the other models of the fully electric architecture of the luxury and upper class (EVA 2; (EQE, EQS, EQS SUV, EQE SUV) will also benefit from many of the improvements presented in this press release.
