Mercedes-Benz’ EQ S will be due in 2020

  • Published On: 10 April 2018

Ultra-luxury electric sedan to take on next-gen Audi A8 EV and Jaguar XJ e-sedan.

The EQ S will take on the upcoming zero-emissions Jaguar XJ and next-gen electric Audi A8 when all three cars go on sale in 2020. However, unlike the cases of the Jaguar and Audi, the EQ S will not be just a variant of an existing member of the line-up but is a separate car by itself.

It will be built on the new modular architecture called MEA. Large-cars project boss Michael Kelz said, “We will have an electric vehicle at the level of the S-class, no doubt, but it will not be the S-class.”

The car will sit alongside other models from the EQ range, which have already been shown in concept form – the EQ A hatchback and EQ C SUV. The company has already trademarked the EQ brand, including EQ S, which is the electric counterpart of the S-class. “It will be a luxury, electric car, a top-of-the-line car,” said Kelz.
