Mercedes-Benz EQS gets S-Class interiorSeptember 11, 2020
We’ve known for a long time that the upcoming all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQS will be inspired by the recently unveiled S-Class flagship. New spy shots allow a better look at the interior and see how close it is to the largest and best Mercedes.
The most obvious connections between the two cars are the dashboard and infotainment screens. The smaller horizontal display shows the toolbar, while the long cascading vertical screen is responsible for infotainment functions. The dashboard behind the displays also curves downward towards the passengers, while the center vents are located at the top above the infotainment screen.
However, there are some notable differences. Unlike the S-Class, there is no small corner behind the infotainment screen. Instead, the entire dashboard stretches behind the screen and flows into the center console. We can also catch a glimpse of the outer vents, which are circular rather than rectangular. This particular instance also has an interesting patterned metal finish on the top of the dashboard.
Externally, the car is, of course, very different from the S-Class. The EQS is all about smooth curves, sleek lines and sleek surfaces compared to the more traditional large sedan. It also looks like the Mercedes-Benz EQS will be a hatchback.
Another important difference will be the power plant. The concept had twin electric motors producing 469 horsepower and 760 Nmw of torque. The battery had a capacity of 100 kWh with an estimated power reserve of 700 km. These numbers seem reasonable enough considering the performance of competitors such as the Tesla Model S and Lucid Air.
