After the impressive launch of the Mercedes-Benz EQS pure electric sedan last April, its maker is now proceeding with its mass production this May. Daimler just announced that the electric vehicle is now being assembled at its Factory 56 in Sildelfingen south of Germany.
The Tesla S challenger is slated to go on sale in the U.S. this fall. It is expected to have a price tag within the range of the S-Class.
The EQS may be rooted with the S-Class line but has managed to stand out on its own because of its distinct design and tech. The EV is highlighted by its 770 km range based on WLTP figures and environment-friendly features.
Unlike the S-Class, the EQS has a liftback profile. It also showcases an illuminated front grille, narrow headlights bridged by a thin LED lamp, taillights connected by thin LED lining running across the bootlid, multi-spoke wheels, and EQS badges.
Meanwhile, the eco-friendly and elegant interior of the car debuts Mercedes’ 56-inch long MBUX Hyperscreen that offers a digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system, passenger side display, and augmented reality heads-up display. The appeal of the auto is further amplified by its high-quality perforated leather seats, faux wood strips, chrome accents, and ambient lighting.
