The testing of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQS full-electric sport utility vehicle continues after it was officially teased last year. The flagship SUV of the EQ range is expected to be publicly unveiled in the U.S.A. in 2022 while its smaller passenger car version is set to be launched there by spring this year. The new spy video of the auto taken in Germany shows that it is towing a small trailer.
The spy video only displays the towing capacity of the electric SUV, which doesn’t indicate any problem at all when it comes to small trailers. Apart from that, it doesn’t reveal much about the product yet because the prototype remains covered in full camouflage.
What we know so far though is that the EQS SUV will ride on Mercedes’ Electric Vehicle Architecture (EVA) platform just like the EQE, EQE SUV, and the EQS car. The EV architecture is expected to house a battery that could provide the auto with up to 700 km range on full charge based on the WLTP cycle.
The EQS SUV will likely follow the design cues of its sedan counterpart and fuel-guzzling Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV cousin too basing on its prototype’s stance, shape, and little exposed areas. Furthermore, the flagship electric SUV will probably get most (if not all) of the comfort features and technologies such as driver assistance system, multiple touchscreen displays, and MBUX infotainment system offered by the latest Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
