The new Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV

Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV: Premiere of the legendary brand's first all-electric model

  • Redefining automotive excellence in the age of electromobility
  • Maximum luxury and comfort with a cocooning effect in the rear
  • First model in the Mercedes-Benz family with sustainably processed leather
  • Extraordinary driving experience with MAYBACH driving performance and maximum noise comfort.

The special exterior with an upright Mercedes star on the hood and a striking black panel front, which carries the specific Maybach radiator grille into the age of electromobility, ensures an unmistakable appearance. The optional two-tone paintwork is also typical of the brand. Thanks to exquisite materials, perfect craftsmanship and exclusive details, the spacious interior offers a holistic comfort experience with a cocooning effect. With its consistent interpretation of Sophisticated Luxury, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV sets the new benchmark in the all-electric top-end luxury SUV segment.

The exterior design
Front end typical of the brand, chrome accents and brand emblem as a design element. Mercedes-Maybach enriches the dynamic purpose design of the EQS SUV from Mercedes-EQ with exclusive elements that give it its very own character. The Mercedes star sits enthroned on the hood, defining the status. The front is characterised by the brand-typical black panel with vertical, chrome-plated trim strips in a three-dimensional depth look.
When viewed from the side, specific features include the bold chrome surrounds on the side windows and the chrome-plated B-pillar trim. This decorative element is an integral part of the Mercedes-Maybach signature and highlights the length of the rear seating area.

The interior design
A highlight for the front passengers is the standard MBUX Hyperscreen with 'zero layer' and Mercedes-Maybach-specific start-up animations on all three displays. The overall visual appearance is specially designed for the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV in an elegant deep blue. The central display starts with the familiar home screen and the so-called 'zero layer'. In this basic setting, the navigation map dominates. The driver can carry out 80% of the most common interactions directly without changing the application.

The appearance can be customised with three display styles (discreet, sporty, MAYBACH) and three modes (Navigation, assistance, service). In the discreet style, the content is reduced as much as possible and harmoniously co-ordinated with the colour change of the selected ambient lighting.

The rear passengers experience the same extensive range of infotainment and comfort features with two 11.6-inch displays on the backrests of the front seats. With the standard MBUX High-End Rear Seat Entertainment, content can be shared quickly and easily on the various displays.

Resource-saving luxury
The Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV is the first model from Mercedes-Benz AG to be fitted with vegetable-tanned leather. Coffee bean shells are used as tanning agents. The sustainably processed leather is not preserved with salt. This saves around 45kg of salt per vehicle with leather seats. New upcycling products such as compostable flowerpots, insulating foams or decking boards are created from the 'by-products' of tanning.

Noise comfort
The new luxury SUV builds on the excellent noise and vibration comfort of the EQS SUV from Mercedes-EQ. This includes the encapsulation of the electric drive train at the front and rear, the innovative support frame on the front axle and the drive units that are doubly decoupled via rubber mounts.
The luggage compartment cover, covered with ARTICO man-made leather, is a transverse bulkhead fixed to the body like a saloon.

The suspension
The AIRMATIC air suspension with continuously adjustable damping ADS+ is standard. Rear-axle steering with a steering angle of up to 4.5 degrees is also standard.

In addition to the DYNAMIC SELECT driving programmes ECO, SPORT, OFFROAD and INDIVIDUAL, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV has the special MAYBACH drive programme. It replaces the classic COMFORT programme and is designed entirely for maximum driving comfort for the rear passengers.
