With the 2022 EQS coming to US dealers this fall, Mercedes-Benz finally has its first fully electric vehicle. Initially, the carmaker plans to offer two different models of the luxury sedan called the EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4Matic.
Both are available in three different finishes: Premium, Exclusive and Pinnacle. The base model EQS 450+ costs $ 102,310, while its counterpart pays back $ 119,110. The Exclusive models cost $ 105,710 and $ 122,510, respectively, while the Pinnacle variants cost $ 108,510 and $ 125,310, respectively. One thing to note is that the above prices do not include a $ 1,050 destination and delivery costs that you have to pay separately.
Putting this price into perspective means you can buy an EQS sedan for less than you would pay for an entry-level S-Class model from Mercedes. The S500 4Matic and S580, with destination charge included, start at $ 110,850 and $ 117,350.
Highlights of the Premium decoration include heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery and a sound system with 10 speakers. If you look at the more expensive finishes, you can look forward to features like a head-up screen, four-zone climate control, extra USB-C and more. Regardless of the effect, each EQS also includes two years of free fast charging and 24 months of free maintenance.
One of the main reasons for the 580 rather than the 450+ is that it appears with the carmaker at CES 2021. On the more affordable model, you get a single 12.8-inch OLED touch screen. The 580 also has 21-inch wheels, while the 450+ has 20-inch wheels.
