Despite many challengers over the decades, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class remains the benchmark in its segment. It’s the executive sedan that all others want to be, including, oddly enough, the German brand’s in-house rival, the EQS. While the EQS has been widely labeled as the “electric S-Class,” Mercedes-Benz stopped short of giving it the full S-Class name. There’s a good reason for that: the EQS takes a slightly different approach than simply being a regular S-Class with an electric motor, which is evident from both inside and outside the car. With its smooth, flowing lines and sharply-tapered lights, the EQS has all the exterior design hallmarks of a typical performance EV.
Stepping inside is where things get really futuristic: SlashGear’s Chris Davies noted the cabin is like a “space-age lounge,” particularly with the optional Hyperscreen fitted, which combines the dash and center console into one giant touchscreen. It displays an almost overwhelming array of widgets and controls, but voice control is also on hand if you can’t find the function you need at a glance. Punch the accelerator and the car pushes forward, feeling eerily similar to a gas-powered S-Class in its lower-powered configurations. Eventually, the EQS line might integrate back into the S-Class lineup, as electricity becomes the default means of propulsion. For now, though, the EQS remains a fascinating offshoot of a luxury favorite, with more cutting-edge tech than anyone could really ever need.
