As part of Mercedes’s ambitious EQ lineup, the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV will ride alongside the 2022 EQS sedan. While the latter will also feature a proposed AMG version, the EQS SUV is surprisingly the first model to get the Maybach treatment. We believe that sooner or later, there will be a Maybach EQS sedan too. The 2023 EQS SUV will go on sale in late 2022.
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV shares its powertrain platform with the EQE and EQS sedans. However, this EVA2 platform will feature a 90 or 108 kWh battery to even out the range figure for the heavy SUV frame. The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV should have a range of about 370 miles (WLTP cycle), based on its platform alone. The EQS SUV will definitely feature an AWD Drivetrain powered by dual electric motors.
The 2023 Mercedes EQS SUV has a crossover frame but features healthy dimensions like that of a full-sized SUV. The Maybach model will also feature 21-inch wheels with rumors of 22-inch wheels. As such, it is difficult to figure out if the newly refreshed Mercedes GLS Maybach SUV will continue to exist as soon as the EQS comes in as the brand's flagship EV SUV.
