The German car maker, will release two model of its first all-electric luxury saloon, the EQS 450 with 245 kW and the EQS 580 4MATIC with 385 kW in Germany and in the US market will see the models in the fourth quarter.

One of the main highlight of the interior is the MBUX Hyperscreen a large, curved screen unit which sweeps almost from A-pillar to A-pillar. Three screens sit under a glass cover and appear to merge into one. The 12.3-inch OLED display for the front passenger gives them their own display and control area.

As for the drive train, the EQS uses a Permanent exited Synchronous electric motor which gives both the models a top speed of 210km/h. Zero to hundred is achieved at a mere 6.2 seconds for the EQS 450 jand shockingly just 4.3 seconds for 4matic EQS 580!
