Mercedes has teased an image of the brand-new EQS-based Maybach, however, it doesn't reveal much details. But Mercedes has stated that it is based on the technology offered on the EQS SUV currently in the manufacturer's line-up. 

    1. Premiere at the 2023 Auto Shanghai in China
    2. Current EQS 580 4Matic has a WLTP-certified range of up to 770km
    3. Could be more powerful than the current EQS 580 SUV 

    New Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV details

    In 2021, Mercedes unveiled the concept of an electric Maybach SUV at the Munich motor show. The concept featured a two-tone paint scheme with lavish interiors, the typical opulent Maybach treatment. The concept EV got monoblock wheels with Maybach branding across the exterior and interior of the car. Like all Maybachs, the three-person second-row bench seat gets replaced with roomy individual seats that come equipped with massage functions apart from heated neck pillows so that passengers feel refreshed during long journeys. 

    As the Maybach EQS 580 will be based on the standard EQS SUV, expect it to come equipped with the massive 56-inch Hyperscreen that spans the width of the dashboard from the driver's side to the passenger side.

    To be Positioned above the EQS 580 4Matic

    The cream of the EQS SUV line-up is currently the EQS 580 4Matic, which comes with a four-wheel-drive system and a total power output of 550hp. The EQS is equipped with rear-wheel steering (up to 10 degrees) that helps the massive 5-metre SUV achieve a turning circle of about 11 metres and also facilitates greater stability when switching lanes during highway driving.

    The SUV also has a WLTP-certified range of up to 770km. Mercedes has named its Maybach version the EQS 680 SUV, which implies that the car will get additional power from the existing 550hp on tap in the EQS 580.
