Mercedes unveils the ultra luxurious Maybach EQS SUV.

The vehicle is based on the technology of the EQS SUV from Mercedes-EQ and combines it with the exclusivity of Maybach.

Mercedes Maybach, the luxury sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, has unveiled its first all-electric series model - the EQS 680 SUV. The vehicle is based on the technology of the EQS SUV from Mercedes-EQ and combines it with the exclusivity of Maybach.

The Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 SUV boasts a striking exterior with an upright Mercedes star on the hood and a black panel front that carries the specific Maybach radiator grille into the age of electromobility. The optional two-tone paintwork is also typical of the brand. The SUV’s appearance is designed to ensure an unmistakable appearance.

The spacious interior of the vehicle offers a holistic comfort experience with a cocooning effect, thanks to exquisite materials, perfect craftsmanship, and exclusive details. With its consistent interpretation of Sophisticated Luxury, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV sets a new benchmark in the all-electric top-end luxury SUV segment.

Under the hood, the Maybach EQS 680 SUV features an all-wheel-drive system with two permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) that offer a combined output of 484 kW and 950 Nm of torque. The vehicle has a rated voltage of 396 volts and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, with a top speed of 210 km/h. The SUV can cover a range of up to 600 km, making it a reliable long-distance cruiser.

Exterior design of Maybach EQS SUV

Mercedes-Maybach has added exclusive elements to the dynamic purpose design of the EQS SUV from Mercedes-EQ, giving it a unique character. The vehicle features the Mercedes star on the hood, which defines its status. The front boasts a black panel with vertical, chrome-plated trim strips that create a three-dimensional depth look. The large black panel is now smoothly closed, integrating the high-tech element for radar sensors and rendering it invisible.

Additionally, the air intake of the bumper is fitted with chrome-plated, filigree slats. The classic MAYBACH lettering is discreetly incorporated into a chrome-plated decorative strip, which forms a unit with the continuous light strip of the standard DIGITAL LIGHT headlights. The Maybach pattern, consisting of several small brand emblems, can also be found in trim parts of the side bumper. DIGITAL LIGHT greets and bids farewell to the driver with a special light show, and an animated projection of the Maybach pattern shines in all four doors as an additional greeting.

Interior Design

The Maybach EQS SUV from Mercedes-EQ receives a unique touch with the exclusive design elements by Mercedes-Maybach, in line with the brand’s ethos of “what is good must also be beautiful”. The hood features the Mercedes star as a defining status symbol, and the front is distinguished by the brand’s signature black panel with vertical chrome-plated strips in a three-dimensional depth look.

The radar sensors’ integration into the front is seamless, with chrome-plated filigree slats adorning the bumper’s air intake. The classic MAYBACH lettering is incorporated into a chrome-plated strip unit with the DIGITAL LIGHT headlights’ continuous light strip, and the Maybach pattern can be found in trim parts of the side bumper. DIGITAL LIGHT welcomes and bids farewell to the driver with a special light show, and an animated projection of the Maybach pattern shines in all four doors.

The Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV’s interior design follows the same credo with elegant deep blue visuals and numerous exclusive features, such as the “MAYBACH” mode animated display of the instrument cluster. The rose gold surrounds for the round instruments are typical of the brand, and a sporty “Pure EV” display form is available as an alternative to the tubes. The first model from Mercedes-Benz AG to feature vegetable-tanned leather, the sustainably processed leather uses coffee bean shells as tanning agents and exclusively plant-based fatliquoring agents, preserving around 45 kilograms of salt per vehicle with leather seats. The “by-products” of tanning create new upcycling products such as compostable flowerpots, insulating foams, or decking boards. The rear of the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV features an exclusive atmosphere, known as the cocooning effect, with perfect craftsmanship, exquisite materials, and exclusive details. The Executive seats, equipped with ventilation, massage function, neck and shoulder heating, calf massage, and the Chauffeur Package, offer a self-contained feel-good atmosphere for all the senses.

The ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL Plus with HEPA filter ensures good air quality, with the air quality sensor supporting the fresh air recirculation switch. The air-conditioned circulating air is filtered multiple times in circulating air mode, and the HEPA filter effectively cleans the incoming outside air of fine dust, small particles, and pollen, while activated carbon filters sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and odours. The pre-air conditioning system cleans the interior air before boarding, and the particulate matter values inside and outside the vehicle are displayed in MBUX’s air quality menu, making recommendations to close the side windows or sunroof if the outside air quality is low.

The Maybach EQS SUV upholds the highest standards for driving comfort. The AIRMATIC air suspension with continuously adjustable damping ADS+ is included as standard. To increase ground clearance, the vehicle level can be raised by up to 35 millimetres. Additionally, rear-axle steering with a standard steering angle of up to 4.5 degrees is available. Alternatively, the rear wheels can be turned up to 10 degrees, reducing the turning circle to 11.0 metres, similar to many compact models.

In addition to the standard DYNAMIC SELECT driving programs (ECO, SPORT, OFFROAD, and INDIVIDUAL), the Maybach EQS SUV features the exclusive MAYBACH drive program. This program, replacing the classic COMFORT program, is entirely dedicated to ensuring maximum driving comfort for the rear passengers. Minimal body movements are ensured through an oscillation node located under the rear seats, resulting in the lowest amplitudes. The MAYBACH driving program is set as the standard setting.
