Is there a Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV?
What we know about the all-electric 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV
When Mercedes-Benz announced its first-ever all-electric 2022 EQS sedan last year, the entire world was excited and curious to see how its first luxury electric vehicle (EV) would turn out. Now that it’s finally here, fans and customers anticipate the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV unveiled recently. In this blog from Silver Star Motors in Long Island Beach, Queens, NY, you’ll learn everything about it.
2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV vs. 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS Sedan
As its name implies, the all-new 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV is the SUV alternative to the Mercedes-Benz EQS luxury sedan. It even borrows some design elements from the EQS luxury sedan. It gets a closed, blacked-out front grille flanked by angular LED headlights connected by a horizontal LED light bar. It also flaunts a sloping silhouette, multi-spoke alloy wheels, flush door handles, and an optional panoramic sunroof. Not only that, but the EQS SUV also shares its wheelbase and a myriad of components with its sedan sibling.
However, since it is a full-fledged electric SUV, it offers three rows and seating for up to seven. The EQS SUV also offers a roomier interior thanks to its extra headroom and a new ginormous 56-inch MBUX Hyperscreen, which includes a 12.3-inch instrument cluster, a 17.7-inch central infotainment unit, and a 12.3-inch front passenger display that stretches across the dashboard from door to door.
The EQS SUV also comes standard with an adjustable air suspension and a rear-axle steering system, making it more agile and easy to maneuver. Unlike its sedan counterpart, the EQS SUV also offers an off-road drive mode, which raises the suspension height and makes the electric powertrain torquier. Because it is an SUV, the EQS SUV also offers more cargo space – 31 cubic feet behind the second row and seven cubes behind the third.

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV Performance
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV is offered in two versions, EQS 450+ and EQS 580 4MATIC®. The base EQS 450+ will be powered by a rear-wheel-drive electric motor that generates 355 hp and 419 pound-feet of torque, while the top-of-the-line EQS 580 4MATIC® comes with all-wheel-drive and makes 536 hp and a whopping 633 pound-feet of peak torque.
Although Mercedes hasn’t confirmed the estimated range of the EQS SUV, it uses the same 107.8-kWh battery pack as the EQS sedan, which offers an EPA-estimated range between 340 and 350 miles. So, you can expect at least 300 miles of estimated range due to the SUV being heavy and less aerodynamic than the sedan. When it comes to charging speeds, the EQS SUV can charge at 200 kW, which should be enough to charge it from 10 to 80 percent in just 31 seconds.
