Mercedes-Benz EQS Listed On Indian Website Ahead Of Launch
Mercedes-Benz EQS made its global debut earlier this month. Mercedes-Benz listed electric sedan EQS on its official Indian website with the ‘Coming Soon’ title. The listing suggests that it could be launched in the Indian market soon. The German carmaker will introduce the EQS electric sedan sometime later this year or early next year in the country. As the name reveals, it’s a full-electric version of the S-Class and will sit at the top of Mercedes’ electric eco-system that currently comprises cars like the EQC, EQA, and EQB. It will be the second all-electric model from Stuttgart-based luxury carmaker, after the EQC electric SUV that was launched last year.
Mercedes-Benz EQS Interior
While mechanical and performance details will have to wait, Mercedes has shown photos of the interior and given us details on this EV’s design ahead of its launch. The Mercedes-Benz EQS will offer a dashboard-spanning infotainment screen, artful interior design, elegant materials selection, ventilated and heated seats with a massage function, a removable touchscreen tablet placed in the center armrest.
The carmaker will offer a more conventional vertically oriented floating display like that in the new S-class sedan. It hovers just in front of the center of the dashboard, anchored to the center console. In the Hyperscreen-less EQS variants, the dash can instead be covered in a variety of wood, metal, or other materials, with a range of finishes and designs.
EQS In International Market
In the international market, the EQS is offered in two trims – EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4Matic. The former produces 328 bhp and 568Nm and is only offered with a rear-wheel-drive configuration. And the latter, as the name rightly suggests, sends all of its 516bhp via an all-wheel-drive system, and a whopping 855 Nm of peak torque.
There is no confirmation as yet about which variants of the EQS will make their way to India. But before we get to the launch of the EQS next year, Mercedes-Benz will introduce a bunch of new cars in India.
