Momentarily glanced while on the move, the EQS will become the flagship vehicle for Mercedes’ new EQ sub-brand. While the spy photos suggest the model will be a stylish shooting brake or wagon, it’s believed the car will actually be a large four-door coupe.
The pictures don’t reveal much, but they show the model will have a short hood and a minimalist overhang. The car also has sweptback headlights and an extremely long windscreen.
The front doors are massive and appear to feature a window divider near the side the mirrors. This suggests only a portion of the front windows will be able to be lowered.
Lastly, we can see a sloping roofline and rounded bodywork. These unique styling features will help to distinguish the model from the next-generation S-Class which is due in 2020 or 2021.
Mercedes hasn’t said much about the EQS, but EQC chief engineer Michael Kelz has previously dropped a few hints about the car. Back in April, he described the model as an S-Class level vehicle that is “top-of-the-line” and combines luxury with an electric powertrain. He went on to say the model would be entirely separate from the S-Class.
Little else is known about the car, but reports have suggested it will ride on the MEA architecture and could be launched as early as 2020.
