2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS
Presenting the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS
America has been waiting for Mercedes-Benz to make its mark on the all-electric vehicle market. That wait ends this year with the 2022 EQS sedan, the flagship of the brand’s electric future.
Everything about the Mercedes-Benz EQS is engineered to be powerful, efficient, and revolutionary—from unprecedented aerodynamics, to the 56” MBUX Hyperscreen that blankets nearly the entire dashboard on select versions of the EQS.
EV Innovation and Performance
Electric Driving Redefined — The EQS sedan is the most aerodynamic vehicle to ever hit the US automotive history (with a 0.20Cd drag coefficient). The EQS can run over 400 miles in optimal conditions on a single charge, thanks to its state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery. Select charging ports can provide a rapid charge in about 15 minutes. And Mercedes-Benz Electric Intelligence automatically gives you info to plan your drive, such as topography, weather conditions, and the locations of charging stations.
High-Tech and Luxury Features
The Inside Experience — The EQS sedan, an electric cousin of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, gives you all the amenities you expect from Mercedes-Benz, plus several unique digital and luxury features. Most prominent is the MBUX touch screen dashboard, a panel of curved glass extending from door to door. The EQS also gives you seamless capabilities in entertainment, navigation, calling, charging, and connectivity. Not to mention – the EQS electric luxury experience includes automatic doors and massage seating.

When you’re on the road, Mercedes-Benz Electric Intelligence will tell you the location of nearby charging stations. Throughout New Jersey and across the US, new stations are being built every day.

With over 125,700 public charging stations (and counting), many ChargePoint stations are free.
You can always charge your Mercedes-Benz EQS from a regular wall outlet (level 1 charging) if you need to. It is however more efficient to install a level 2 charger wherever you normally park your vehicle. Level 2 outlets use 240V and charge significantly faster (from 0-100% in approximately 11.25 hours).
Electric vehicles outperform gas-powered vehicles in torque and acceleration. Because of the electric drive system, the reaction from pedal to drivetrain happens instantaneously, which cannot be said for the typical gas engine.

Equipped with the newest generation of lithium-ion batteries, the first Mercedes-Benz EQ all-electric vehicle has been designed with a higher energy density, allowing for an increased range.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS Sedan – Features
The Mercedes-Benz EQS presents the latest evolution of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. This design will be exclusive to the EQS 580. The 56” panel uses curved glass and merges three screens to span the entire length of the dashboard with its “zero-layer” user interface.
Leading the industry with unprecedented AI, your MBUX will make customized suggestions for navigation, infotainment, massage, and connectivity, without the need for any voice commands or scrolling.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS will come in two trim levels.
The starting model is the EQS 450+, which is rear-wheel drive (RWD) and can go from 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds. With an electric motor above its rear axle, the EQS 450+ commands 329 HP and 406 lb-ft of torque.
The higher trim level EQS 580 4MATIC® is all-wheel drive (AWD), touting 516 HP, 611 lb-ft of torque, and the ability to go from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds.
AC Charging (240V) from 0-100% through a level 2 wall box takes approximately 11.25 hours and typically adds 15-30 miles for each hour of charging. A 200kW DC rapid charging station can boost your vehicle’s battery from 10-100% in about 31 minutes.
Both trim levels of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS family are powered with 107.8-kWh battery capacity, reliably giving you over 300 miles of driving range, and more than 400 miles in optimal conditions.
Mercedes-Benz’s Active Ambient Lighting gives you 64 hues to choose from for interior lighting. Other features like multi-contour front seats with massage functionality, a panoramic sunroof, and 4-Zone Climate Control might make your journey even more anticipated than your destination.
Maneuvering tight situations has never been easier with Active Parking Assist and its 360-degree View Camera. Whether you’re backing down a tight driveway or parallel parking on a busy city street, your EQS helps you every step of the way and gives you confidence in potentially stressful situations. Additional driver packages like Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping give you semi-autonomous functionality on long drives or tiring commutes.
Winner of “Best Interior” in the British TopGear.com Electric Awards of 2021, the EQS sedan’s interior takes inspiration from the related S-Class. The exterior takes an entirely new and different direction, defying the long-hood layouts of many traditional luxury sedans.
The EQS sedan is manufactured on Mercedes-Benz’s platform for large EVs with a “one-bow” design and wheels that are pushed out for an assertive posture. The two-tone paint options for the car’s exterior are brand new in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS. The EQS sedan will feature many of the same standard interior design features as the 2022 S-Class, with veneers for the dashboard and center console and customizable upholstery colors. The EQS seats up to five passengers.
Key safety features in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS are Active Highbeam Assist, Active Parking Assist, and Adjustable Regenerative Braking.
