It’s been a year since the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV was previewed in its concept form. So far, not much has been heard from the ultra-luxurious EV lately, except a couple of spy shots of it that popped out online a few months ago. Recently, the auto was seen again with partial camouflage, and this time, it is towing a trailer.
Compared to the exquisite two-tone exterior design of the concept shown in Munich, the production model of the Maybach EQS SUV here looks to be a watered-down version, which does not deviate much from the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV that made its world premiere earlier. However, we expect it to carry Maybach’s signature vertical front grille as well as new badges and wheels, to say the least.
The interior is where the Maybach EQS SUV will truly dazzle though. It should be nothing less than what the Mercedes-Maybach GLS has to offer, which takes inspiration from the cabin of a yacht or private jet with premium leather upholstery and wood trims. These will likely be complemented by the latest Mercedes Hyperscreen with fully-digital controls and plenty of touchscreens aimed to provide the highest level of comfort to the rear passengers.
Details about the powertrain of the Maybach EQS SUV are not yet available, but it will likely utilize the dual-motor layout used in the EQS SUV 580 4MATIC. This would provide the ultra-opulent EV with at least 536 hp and 633 lb-ft of torque.
Mercedes previously claimed that the Maybach will have an electric range of about 373 miles at a full charge based on a WLTP cycle. The EPA ratings will likely cut down the said numbers though.
