Following two years of teasing the public, Mercedes-Benz has finally pulled the entire sheet off its EQS SUV.

The public first caught wind of an SUV version of Mercedes-Benz’ EQS sedan in October of 2020, when the German automaker shared camo’d footage of its first three EVs on its new electrified EQ line: the EQS and EQE sedans and the EQS SUV.

If the name wasn’t hint enough, the new EQS SUV is based on the sedan version that debuted in 2021. As a larger version, the EQS SUV offers seating for up to seven passengers and more cargo space with the same luxury and technology as the EQ sedans that come before it.

The new EQ model will come with plenty of standard features like three individual driving modes, plus Active Parking Assist with its Surround View Camera.

As you can see from the image above, the interior on the upcoming EQS SUV remains on brand for the EQ line as a whole, closely resembling that of its EQS and EQE sedan siblings.

A main feature that stands out is Mercedes’ MBUX Hyperscreen, which includes multiple displays beneath curved glass as well as a new Augmented Reality Navigation system and “Hey Mercedes” Keyword Activation.
