Mercedes-Benz seems to be keeping its self-set deadline until 2022 on schedule. The German automaker plans to bring at least 10 electric vehicles to market by the end of said year.
One of the EVs with the three-pointed star logo that was unveiled not long ago was the what Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan, which is right at the top with its high-end equipment and borrowings from the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. In order not to let the momentum go unused, the luxury brand seems to be working intensively on the SUV counterpart of the electric flagship sedan.
We have every reason to believe that the spy video shown here shows us the EQS SUV prototype. The EV may be clad in heavy zebra camouflage, but its headlights and entire front profile are just too similar to the EQS sedan. A look into the vehicle also indicates the same MBUX hyperscreen that its siblings found in the sedan. In the meantime, it shows a tailgate design in the rear and an overall layout that doesn’t differ much from the GLS SUV.
No information is currently available on the EQS SUV’s mechanical specifications, but if it takes on the equipment of its sedan version like the latest Merc SUVs, its output could increase from 329hp to 516hp. We hope the manufacturer keeps its promise of at least 478 miles of electric range for the electric SUV as well.
